Adobe PS Lightroom 2

Adobe on Tuesday unveiled Photoshop Lightroom 2, a major update to its photo management, tweaking, and presenting software, offering users enhancements such as dual-monitor support, non-destructive localized image correction, and improved search capabilities. Lightroom 2 also marks Adobe's first attempt at a fully 64-bit application, offering improved memory performance when dealing with large image files. Adobe is offering Lightroom 2 for $300, with an upgrade available for $100.

In addition, Lightroom 2 offers enhanced RAW support, allowing users to take advantage of default camera profiles to emulate visual effects commonly seen with industry-favorite camera equipment. Over 190 cameras are supported, with profiles available from Adobe Labs.

Lightroom 2 includes an enhanced Library module, allowing users to visually organize images across multiple hard drives, with a new filter bar and keyword suggestions to help refine image searches.

The Develop mode now has a new Local Adjustment brush, so users can edit specific areas of the picture, without affecting others

    one more thing...

    I still wish they'd lose the Library/Develop modules and just go with the grid view for Library and the one up full size view for Develop. That is the only thing irritating me about the program. Otherwise I love it to death.
