    Thanks for posting, best overview I've seen thus far.

    Very useful, covers lots of little things that I haven't seen mentioned elsewhere. For example a bug fix in Publish Services that sounds like it may solve a minor issue that has been bothering me (where photos are marked as Modified for no apparent reason). While these small things are unlikely to be the difference between upgrading or not, it is nice to know about them.

    As an Aperture user since many years, I downloaded today the trial version of Lightroon 6 to give it a look before taking a decision about moving to a new software. I tried to use my Nik Collection plug-ins, that I use with Aperture and Photoshop CS6, but LR don't recognize them from the Photoshop plugins folder. ¿Any clues about what to do?

    You should be able to download the Nik Plugins for LR for free if you purchased the aperture versions. Just log back into the Nik Plugins site and download the LR versions

    Thank you for your advise, but it seems that NIK software has not upgraded their plugins yet:
    "Adobe Lightroom: Desde la versión 3 hasta la 5" (Adobe Lightroom: From version 3 to 5)


    If I import my Aperture collection, ¿LR will create a new one, duplicating all my photos and taking double space of my HD? ¿If I want to go back to Aperture, my "old" collection would be available?

    The current version of Nik software works fine with Lightroom 6, aka Lightroom CC. Just reinstall it; it does not use the Photoshop plugin folder but installs in another place specifically for Lightroom. For example, on a Mac in: ~/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Lightroom/External Editor Presets. The Nik installer will put it in the correct folder automatically, after it detects Lightroom is installed.

    Can confirm the new 'facial recognition' can't do cats :(

    I don't care about people, I want it to recognise my cute kitties!

    just used the Panorama function. Very easy and its nice having the final result in DNG format so you can continue to tune it.

    Something new I noticed in LR6 -- an unpleasant tendency to sometimes display seriously low-resolution grid view images that, when opening in Loupe or Develop view, stay horribly low-res (I'm talking about maybe 50x50 pixels, guessing wildly) for a longgggg time, maybe a minute, before snapping into good resolution view. Meantime you can't do a thing with the image.

    I never had that happen with LR3 or LR5, not once. Is there something in the settings that can fix this?
