Lightroom 6.3 Fixes Import Dialog, Flickr

Sharad Mangalick:

Lightroom CC 2015.3 and Lightroom 6.3 are now available on Adobe.com. The goal of this release is to provide additional camera raw support, lens profile support and address bugs that were introduced in previous releases of Lightroom. This release also restores the Import experience available prior to Lightroom 6.2.

It’s nice to have the old import dialog back. More importantly, this version fixes a major bug that was introduced in 6.2 where Lightroom messed up multi-word keywords when posting to Flickr. Unfortunately, there is no easy way to fix the Flickr tags on photos that were uploaded with 6.2. Republishing the photo with Lightroom does not update the tags. You can manually remove the tags from a Flickr photo, and then republishing in Lightroom will restore the keyword tags. However, Lightroom won’t restore the location tags. And Flickr doesn’t support removing tags from multiple photos at once.
