Here is a movie taking a first look at Adobe’s latest Lightroom 4 beta. To get it for yourself (for FREE!), visit labs.adobe.com.
It’s here! Anyone can now download the Lightroom 4 Beta. I have not yet played around with it at all but will be posting my comments/videos as soon as I can. Here is a couple new features that Adobe has highlighted:
- Highlight and shadow recovery brings out all the detail that your camera captures in dark shadows and bright highlights.
- Photo book creation with easy-to-use elegant templates.
- Location-based organization lets you find and group images by location, assign locations to images, and display data from GPS-enabled cameras.
- White balance brush to refine and adjust white balance in specific areas of your images.
- Additional local editing controls let you adjust noise reduction and remove moiré in targeted areas of your images.
- Extended video support for organizing, viewing, and making adjustments and edits to video clips.
- Easy video publishing lets you edit and share video clips on Facebook and Flickr®.
- Soft proofing to preview how an image will look when printed with color-managed printers.
- Email directly from Lightroom using the email account of your choice.
