Photoshop Lightroom 1.1

Adobe today released an update to its professional software application: Photoshop Lightroom 1.1 is a free upgrade for existing users that brings a new flexible image management system for multi-computer workflows and improved noise reduction and sharpening. The company also said the free update brings additional raw file support for 13 additional digital cameras, including Canon, Nikon, Olympus, and Phase One. Lightroom, which began shipping earlier this year, offers professional photographers the ability to import and manage their digital photograph collections. The new image management system allows flexible multi-computer workflows and features a new catalog-based system to move images and information between computers. The update is available now as a 22.5MB download.

In addition, Lightroom 1.1 streamlines workflows with a convenient way to synchronize folders with new or changed photos. Other changes include improved noise reduction and sharpening functionality, utilizing customer feedback and technology from industry-standard Photoshop.

Version 1.1 also adds support for 13 additional digital cameras including the Canon EOS-1D Mark III, Fuji FinePix S5 Pro; Nikon D40x; Olympus E-410, and Olympus SP-550 UZ; Ricoh Caplio GX 100; Sigma SD 14; Phase One H 20, Phase One H 25, Phase One P 20, Phase One P 21, Phase One P 25, Phase One P 30 and Phase One P 45.

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom is available as a Universal application for native performance on both Intel- and PowerPC-based Macs; the full version is $300 and requires Mac OS X v10.4 (1GHz G4/768MB of RAM).

    who has both...?

    i've been living with aperture for awhile now and really have issues with it, on a new fast machine.

    i'm a bit leery of switching to lightroom, since aperture 2.0 is supposed to be a ground-up rewrite that fixes everything (please, god).

    is lightroom great tho? my main concerns are UI and speed. 2 areas where aperture bites donk.

    Wow... Photoshop Lightroom, huh? Go MacNN! I know 13 year olds who proofread better than these guys!

    rtbarry - I have both. I love Lightroom. I used Aperture for about a month and then got Lightroom. I prefer lightroom better. But not by much... I just prefer the interface. I like the stacks better in Aperture. File handling is a bit bettter in Aperture, but overall.. I just prefer Lightroom. :)

    Compare and Contrast

    Here is a good article:

    I like Aperture better, but barely. It was less expensive, though. One note: Make sure you have a good video card (128 MB, but I suggest 256 MB).

    Good luck.

    Photoshop Lightroom

    eldarkus, the name of the product is Adobe Photoshop Lightroom. They changed it from just Lightroom to the longer name when it became 1.0.

    I also prefer Lightroom over Aperture, primarily due to the vast speed difference.
