Lightroom 5.3 Release Candidate Now Available from Adobe Labs

The Lightroom team has announced the availability of the release candidate for Lightroom 5.3.  Release candidates are made available before official releases in order to get broader community testing and feedback. This release contain bug fixes, new camera support, new lens profiles and a few new Develop shortcuts.  My general recommendation regarding release candidates is for most people to wait for the official release, unless you have one of the new cameras or need a new lens profile, or unless the bugs that have been fixed are affecting you.

Color Noise Smoothness Slider The color noise slider previously present has been great at removing pixel-level color noise. This new smoothness slider now also removes larger color blobs that you may find when you brighten very-much underexposed areas of a photograph:

On the Adobe Horizon: Lightroom Mobile

As I mentioned in my last post on Adobe’s Photography Creative Cloud announcement, at Photoshop World last week Adobe Product Manager Tom Hogarty demonstrated Lightroom Mobile, an exciting solution now in development that will allow us to seamlessly review and make at least basic adjustments to photos in our Desktop Lightroom catalogs using our iPads or iPhones. This is a component of the future direction of Lightroom that Tom articulated, moving from being just “your Desktop photography solution, to being your (complete) photography solution”. Lightroom Mobile is still very much in development, but Tom demonstrated in Lightroom on his main computer: Putting a checkmark next to collections that he wanted Lightroom to sync to his iPad Logging into his Adobe [...more]
