Adobe's latest software simplifies photography

Need more photo management grunt than iPhoto can deliver? Adobe’s Photoshop Lightroom is for you, enabling photographers to import, select, develop and present large volumes of digital photographs, with the express aim of letting photographers spend less time sorting and organizing images so they can spend more time what they love doing most -- taking photos.

Lightroom 1.0. The program is meant for professional photographers, like wedding or sports photographers, who have to manage and show thousands of RAW images.

Photoshop Lightroom 1.0, the image processing application for professional photographers, is an improvement over the current Photoshop Lightroom 4.1 beta version.

The photographic software was available as a freely-downloadable beta since its announcement over a year ago. The current beta 4.1 will expire on February 28, after which users will have to purchase the full version if they want to continue using it.

Adobe is offering Photoshop Lightroom 1.0 at a special introductory price of US $199 (Rs 8,955) through April 30, 2007 at the Adobe Store. The software will later sell for an estimated increased price of US $299 (Rs 13,455). The 1.0 version includes new functionality to those in the version 4.1 beta. For instance, the Library module gains advanced keywording tools to help photographers filter through large collections, and more flexible file handling in the import dialogue allows greater choice while determining file location.

The new version runs under Macintosh OSX 10.4.3, or Windows XP. It also requires 1 GHz PowerPC G4 processor or Microsoft Windows XP SP2, Intel Pentium 4 Processor, and 768 MB RAM and a 1024x768 resolution screen.
