Lightroom 3 has been a long time in oven, but it’s finally baked and ready for serving. Has the wait been worth it? Well, if you’ve already been working with either of the two public betas you’ll already be familiar with most of the features added since version 2 shipped in late July 2008. For those who haven’t, the following is as good a place as any to start learning.
No sooner had I posted the Yellowstone Gallery than I received emails asking why I had chosen to use an Adobe Flash Gallery rather than HTML. Truth is, I didn’t think it was going to be an issue, after all Flash galleries are widely used across the web and tend to be a lot more feature rich than HTML. Unfortunately, they fall foul of Apple’s policy of not supporting Flash on the iPhone or iPad devices, hence the emails I mentioned above. Should this really matter to site like this? Probably not, but I’d rather anyone who wants to view the images is able to do so. So, I’ve changed the gallery over to a Lightroom HTML gallery – Yellowstone in Winter – 2010
