I’ve had a number of emails in the last couple of days asking if there’s a free update to my version 2 book as Lightroom is now at version 2.2, so let me take this opportunity to clarify…
So far, the Lightroom 2.1 and 2.2 program updates have only fixed bugs and added cameras, and there have been no exciting new features added to add to the book, and the rest of the information is still correct, so there is no update at the moment.
The only main things that have changed:
- The new camera profiles were in beta when the book was written, and are now final. They’re automatically installed now, but all of the related questions are still correct.
- The resizing algorithm has improved and no longer uses the Lanczos algorithm mentioned in chapter 8, but uses an intelligent bicubic algorithm depending on the original and output sizes.
- CS4 is now out and a dialog has appeared for those still using CS3, which I’ve covered in this blog post: https://www.lightroomqueen.com/blog/2008/12/18/lightroom-22-compatibility-with-cs3/
If Adobe do start adding features, then I will update the version 2 book, and it will be a free update for anyone who already owns it.
An email should go out, but they have a habit of being caught in spam filters. I’ll also post notification of any updates here on the blog, which you can subscribe to using this link: https://www.lightroomqueen.com/blog/feed/. If you don’t fancy listening the rest of my ramblings, you can subscribe just to the Book Updates feed using this link: /book-news/feed/
Obviously version 3 will be a new book, which I’m already busy planning. If you have any suggestions on improvements, I’d love to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org
