Adobe has launched a beta version of Lightroom 2.0.  You can get it free through August if you own LR already.  If you do not, you can try it for 30 days.

 Click here to download it.

Some of the changes listed from Adobe’s Press Release and Site are:

  • Localized corrections — Enhance specific areas of an image for unsurpassed nondestructive flexibility and control reminiscent of the traditional darkroom dodge and burn experience.
  • Improved organizational tools — Find the images you need quickly and easily.
  • Multiple monitor support — Add an additional monitor to efficiently manage photographic workflow and presentation.
  • Flexible print package functionality — Create custom layouts containing multiple sizes of a photograph on a single page.
  • 64-bit support — Lightroom 2.0 now takes advantage of the latest hardware architectures with improved memory handling and performance.
  • I am personally very curious about the localized corrections as that is my biggest gripe with LR – not being able to make changes to one specific area.  I sure hope it does what I am picturing. 

    They do say this should not be used for production just testing.  So I am undecided if I will be installing it this early on.  If I do I will let you know.  And if you do, please come back to this thread and add comments on your thoughts and opinions on this new version.

    Thanks – Jodi

      I’ve never used Lightroom. I don’t know what the difference is between it and Photoshop. I guess I’ll have to look into it.
