On Monday 9th January 2006 Adobe announced the first public beta of Lightroom. Little did we realise at the time that it would become the mainstay photo management and editing application for many digital photographers. So here we are, six years on, same day, same month, and they’ve done it again. Today is the day that Lightroom 4 goes into public beta.
So what’s new and improved?
For Lightroom 4 Adobe have gone right back to 2006. They’ve reviewed the feature requests, and spoken to users. So, which features came to the top? Yes, you guessed – Soft Proofing, Books, Geotagging and Video.
