Adobe has released Adobe Lightroom Beta 3 to Windows and Mac users alike. The goal of Lightroom is to give professional photographers a way to easily manage and edit their photos. The software really targets those people who use an uncompressed image format (RAW) instead of the common JPEG compression. By using a RAW image format you are able to adjust details of the exposure and contrast to precisely match what you would like it to.
While Lightroom really seems great for some purposes I don’t believe that it is meant for everyone. It will be interesting to see how well this software ends up taking off.
NOTE: You will have to register with Adobe if you plan on downloading the software.
Thanks for the tip James!
