Lightroom 3 offers improved noise reduction, photo uploading

updated 08:25 pm EST, Tue December 1, 2009

New architecture brings faster performance

Adobe has released a public beta of the upcoming Photoshop Lightroom 3 photography software. The utility has been revamped with new architecture claimed to bring improvements to overall performance, while the raw processing engine also received an overhaul. Import handling has been enhanced, with a focus on making the process more streamlined.

Users can now take advantage of a noise reduction tool for correction images captured at high ISO levels. The software also features a utility that simulates film grain, allowing the gritty effect to be added to images. A watermarking tool can now be used to help protect copyrighted content, while the print packages can be individually customized.

Saving image sequences is no longer limited to slideshow file formats, as the software now allows slideshows to be exported as videos for sharing. Photographs can also be uploaded directly to web-based portals, such as Flickr, without leaving the Lightroom interface.

The Lightroom 3 public beta can be downloaded directly from Adobe Labs.
