Adobe Lightroom 4.0

Send Article to a Friend

After a fairly short public beta (see “Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4 Public Beta,” 16 January 2012), Adobe has released Photoshop Lightroom 4.0. Halving its price to $149, this major new version of the professional photo cataloging and editing application now includes book creation capabilities via built-in templates and provides native video support with basic editing tools plus direct video uploads to Flickr and Facebook. Other new features include adjustment controls that maximize dynamic range for recovering shadow details and highlights, and a map module for a visual overview of where geotagged photos were shot. A few changes were made since the public beta, including reverse geocoding in the map module, increased maximum book size to 240 pages, updated Develop tool presets for both still images and video, and fixes for over 800 bugs. ($149 new, $79 upgrade, $79 student and teacher edition, 384 MB, release notes)

If Lightroom is as buggy as Photoshop Elements or almost anything else Adobe makes for the Mac I'd stay right away from it.
This type of comment is of not value, to just say everything Adobe makes is buggy is based on what? I have used Lightroom from the beginning and have never seen a bug.
