Earlier this month we told you that Adobe finally announced the Lightroom editing service for Android smartphones. - But Adobe is also working towards a new desktop version, which will be released as Lightroom 6. However, you'll have to bear in mind that if you want to take advantage of the new version, you’ll need to upgrade to the latest operating system.
Adobe has announced that Lighroom 6 will be compatible only with 64-bit operating systems, hoping that this way, photographers will have time to get their hardware and software ready.
So expect Lightroom 6 to be compatible with at least OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion (in the Mac camp) and the 64-bit version of Windows 7, 8 or 8.1
