Adobe has announced the immediate availability of Photoshop Lightroom 2 software for managing, adjusting, and presenting large volumes of digital photographs. New enhancements include advances in non-destructive localized image correction, streamlined search capabilities, and dual-monitor support that gives you the flexibility to expand your image-editing and organizing workspace.
Lightroom 2 is Adobe's first application to support 64-bit processing on Mac OS X 10.5 Macintosh computers with Intel processors and Microsoft Windows Vista 64-bit operating systems.
New features include: Improved memory performance for dealing with large-scale images, an enhanced Library module in Lightroom 2 that enables you to visually organize images across multiple hard drives, and a Suggested Keywords feature that makes intelligent suggestions based on keywords you’ve previously used.
Also, a Local Adjustment Brush in the Develop module lets you fine-tune specific areas of an image to precisely adjust color, exposure, and tonal range without affecting other areas of the image.
A new Graduated Filter allows for edits to larger areas by applying gradually diminishing or increasing adjustment effects such as exposure, clarity, and saturation, alone, or in any combination.
Lightroom 2 also helps you print more efficiently by quickly arranging photos of multiple sizes on one or many pages with flexible and customizable templates to maximize paper and ink. Intelligent algorithms automatically determine optimal sharpening for screen or print, producing crisper images faster.
You can learn more about all of the new features of Lightroom 2 by visiting the Lightroom 2 Learning Center operated by the National Association of Photoshop Professionals (NAPP). The site includes 11 video tutorials hosted by NAPP president Scott Kelby and Lightroom Killer Tips expert Matt Kloskowski.
The tutorials demonstrate all of the new improvements and explain how Lightroom 2 differs from Adobe Bridge and the first Lightroom release. The Lightroom 2 Learning Center was launched July 29 and is open to the general public for 60 days.
Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2 is available now through the Adobe Store with an estimated street price of $299 for new users with an upgrade price of $99 for registered users of qualifying Lightroom products. Additional information on product features, upgrade policies, pricing, and language versions is available at Adobe’s Lightroom product site.
