It has some terrible bugs in it. When changing presets the profile resets back to Adobe standard, even if profile isn't checked within that preset. It is making editing a real pain.
LR is also crashing. Please fix these bugs quick as I have tons of work to get done!
Is it possible to roll back a version? 7.3 can't be used in this state.

You can uninstall 7.3 via the App manager, then when you go to re-install click the down-arrow to the right and choose Other Versions, which will open a dialog where you will see Lightroom 7.2.

Is there any information about how to generate one's own "Look" profiles (creative profiles)?  Is it possible to incorporate existing LUTs into these looks?  Thanks!  Kirk

There is an SDK but I haven't seen a public download link for it yet. And yes, you can use existing LUT's.

In the current version of ACR, you can add an external LUT to a custom, creative profile by Option-Clicking on the New Preset button in the preset tab.  Thanks!  Kirk

Do you have a URL for that?  I can't find the link on these pages:

The translations of profiles to Swedish are wrong. In Adobe Raw profiles and Camera profiles Portrait is translated to "Stående" which means "standing" and Landscape is translated to "Liggande" which means "horisontal". It's easy to understand why this error was made...

Did you try signing out of Creative Cloud desktop and resigning in?
Also, end the process for Creative Cloud and then launch Creative Cloud desktop app to see if you are able to see the updates.

Thanks

Is there a list of the bugs fixed in 7.3?  Or were no publicly reported bugs fixed due to the focus on the new features?

Spot on, there were a few minor bits fixed, but nothing publicly reported (that I could see), as they had their hands full with the new features.

Seems that Adobe didn't fix any of the numerous bugs concerning really disturbing flaws with GPU, 4k monitors and lack of performance on hi-end PCs.

These bugs which are causing troubles and unconveniences for many months are:
https://feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family/topics/i-have-update-lightroom-cc-to-lightroom-class...

https://feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family/topics/white-balance-dropper-target-location-is-offs...

https://feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family/topics/lightroom-cc-very-slow-on-hi-end-pc

https://feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family/topics/lightroom-clone-and-brush-tool-can-not-stress...

Is there at least a beta in the pipeline to test fixes concerning these topics?

Nice changes, but old pressets are after update mixed and not alphabetical sorted and some "non color" presets accidentally changing profile from  "Adobe Standard BW" to color "Adobe Standard"
(like grain, noise reduction, lens correction, dehaze, sharpening, vigneting, etc...)

My first impression with v. 7.3 is that it corrects the performance issues I had with the catastrophic v. 7.2 and improves from the previous versions too. Hope that the situation stays like this while I continue my use longer. Those who have made rollback from v. 7.2 to earlier versions (as I did) should at least try v. 7.3. Thanks for the team to fix things! Have not tried new features yet...

Thanks Olli for the confirmation. Yes, there was a fix for that particular performance issue introduced in Lr 7.2.

I noticed that 7.3 (like all versions since 7.0) ist extremely slow converting RAW to JPG. It appears relatively quickk converting all pictures, but then takes a long time to make those pics appear on screen. Is there any trick or toll to accel
erate the process?

Try toggle the "Use Graphics Processor" on/off and see which setting gives you the best experience.

just checked it and it doesn't help. conversion to jpg seems reasonably quick but RAW to DNG by comparison appears much faster. DNG to JPG, however slow. right now I have roughly 220 pics converted to JPG but so far only 11 of them visible in the newly created subdirectory.
It really can't be my PC with LR installed on a SSD Mk II card (1 TB), i7 3.6 GhZ processor, 32 GB Ram and fast WD Gold 6 TB HD plus an adequate Nvidia graphics card

Interesting new feature but, as usual, not thoroughly tested (or even not tested at all). Too many bugs in the preset management to be considered as serious. Not talking about the usual leftovers, duplicate files,...

Anyone who had right-clicked a preset folder in LR 7.3 could have seen that all user preset management commands like rename or delete were lost (although they are available in Camera RAW).

Anyone who had opened one of the new built-in presets could have seen that the sorting was plain wrong.

I'm wondering how quality insurance is organized  at Adobe.

When will 7.3.1 be released without those catastrophic bugs, reported here? I was forced to downgrade to 7.2. The only positive thing in 7.3 was a little bit better performance as in the previous 7.x versions

An to be honest, you should really not be happy to release such an aweful buggy version to the public....

Ok, thanks for the feedback. I hope you will provide a detailed change log. For me - and i think also for many others - it's important to know, which of the strange behaviours with presets in 7.3 were bugs and which are maybee changes in the way, how presets will work in the future.

Meaning for example, that some presets which apply only some settings will revert other settings (applied by a previous presets) in 7.3. If this is a change in the future, how presets are working, it's very important to know this.

Looking forward to the bugfixed release :)

Please advise WHERE are we supposed to put 3rd party profiles on our HDD? This is not clear and seems to be different for each PC. I am using Lr 7.3 Classic on Win10 x64 bit laptop.   My presets location is:  C:\Users\username\Pictures  and my Camera Profiles location appear to be at C:\ProgramData\Adobe\CameraRaw\CameraProfiles  and in there I only see 2 subfolders which are "Adobe Standard" and "Camera" so where do we put the 3rd party ones to be able to see them at the bottom of the new profiles panel list? thanks much

I did an updated list of file locations here: Lightroom Classic File Locations

There are slight differences if you have "Store presets with this catalog" checked in preferences, but in short, it's best to leave it unchecked unless the catalog's on an external drive to be plugged into more than one computer.

"We are happy to announce the release of Lightroom Classic CC 7.3."

Maybe you are happy but we are not finding the bugs funny.

Lightroom 7.3 should never have been released.
