Adobe Lightroom 6 will Support only 64 Bit Operating Systems


Adobe on it’s Lightroom Journal Blog announced that, the coming up Adobe Lightroom 6, which is expected to be released this year, will only support 64-Bit Operating System. This will enable them to concentrate on including the advanced imaging features and high performance. The new version of the software, which last saw a major upgrade in April of 2013, will no longer support 32-bit operating systems.

In their blog, they wrote:

“We are hard at work on the next major release of Lightroom, and wanted to share some information on operating system requirements in order to give everyone time to prepare for the release.

In order to leverage the latest operating system features and technologies, Lightroom 6 will require Mac OS X 10.8 or above, or a 64 bit version of Windows 7, 8 or 8.1. Focusing our work on more modern operating systems and architectures allows us to spend more time adding functionality requested by users, including additional advanced imaging features and improving general application performance.

If you are on Mac OS X 10.7, or a 32 bit version of Windows, you will continue to be able to install and run Lightroom 5 and use Lightroom mobile. However, you will not be able to install Lightroom 6 until you upgrade to a supported operating system.

If you are currently running Mac OS X 10.7, Apple offers a free upgrade (here) to a more current operating system. For Windows users, Microsoft has a how-to reference (here) to help you determine whether you are running a 32 or 64 bit version of Windows.”
