Ok, I know things have been quiet on this blog lately. It’s a long story, but things will get back to normal one day – or so I keep telling myself!
In the meantime, exciting news – Lightroom 3.3 is now available a Release Candidate – which means it’s been tested like a final release but they want additional feedback from a wider range of users. It’s stable, and it’s got some good bug fixes, so a pretty solid update. You can download it from: http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/lightroom3-3/
- Nikon D7000, P7000, D3100
- Canon S95, G12
- Panasonic DMC-GH2
- Samsung NX100, TL350/WB2000
There’s a list of bug fixes at Lightroom Journal but if you don’t want to read the whole list, the biggest ones are clone/heal spots that could previously cause crashing and Limit File Size which removed the metadata in 3.2.
Even more exciting is the release of the Adobe Lens Profile Downloader. Until now, only CS5 users could download lens profiles that had been uploaded by community members, but the LPD now allows everyone to search and download those shared profile. http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/lensprofile_creator.html
If you download the 3.3 RC, you’ll also want the matching ACR 6.3 RC for compatibility with Photoshop. http://clkuk.tradedoubler.com/click?p(265883)a(2791170)g(22913796)url(http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/cameraraw6-3/)
