It’s always been a challenge to stay current with the latest offerings from hardware and software manufacturers. Of late the pace seems to have accelerated, partly due to the move by many major companies to Internet-based subscription models which streamline both delivery and cash flow. As this trend continues, support for legacy systems (computers with older, slower operating systems) becomes more problematic. In that vein, Adobe has posted a notice regarding support for the next version of Lightroom (LR6); in a nutshell it will require a 64-bit OS. LR5 will continue to be available for those who prefer to stay with 32-bit systems. As a sidenote, 64-bit systems manage computer memory much more effectively, significantly improving image processing workflow.
