Adobe Lightroom 6 Will Only Work on 64-bit Operating Systems


Posted January 22nd, 2015 by


Adobe announced today that the next version of Lightroom, Lightroom 6, will only operate on 64-bit operating systems. This means they are focusing more on performance and features rather than backwards compatibility with older computers or older operating systems. So, if you are currently using Windows Vista, Windows XP or anything prior to Mac OS X 10.8, then you’ll need to upgrade to a newer operating system such as Windows 7, 8, 8.1, 10 or at least Mac OS X 10.8 or above.
If you won’t be upgrading your operating system, then you’ll be able to use Adobe Lightroom 5
