Earlier this week, Adobe Lightroom 4 was officially released to the world. With it comes big changes, some visible to the user, others behind the scenes. Collectively, this is one of the most important releases to Lightroom and solidifies Lightroom’s position as the go-to all-in-one application for managing the chaos of a digital photography workflow.
Rather than provide a comprehensive overview of the new features (there are plenty of those already written) in the coming weeks I’d like to focus on a couple of workflow improvements that may go under the radar and, as a result, might be missed.
So head over to the Adobe Web site to download a free 30-day trial of Lightroom 4. While you’re there, be sure to glance at the top new features in this version and then tune in here for more detailed information.
I’ll kick of my analysis of Lightroom 4 next week, with a series of articles on the new Adobe Camera Raw, Lightroom’s processing engine. In the meantime, have a great weekend playing with Lightroom.
