Here’s a link to a write up by Victoria Bampton on what’s new in the LR3 beta. Keep in mind that this is a very early beta — some of the new features will disappear, others will be added, and you will encounter bugs (particularly known are render preview issues).

(They load in two stages, so give it a little time.) Check or uncheck the Release, Skill Level and Topic checkboxes on the right to narrow your selection. Enjoy!
These days there are two primary digital workflows for photographers: Adobe Bridge/Camera Raw/Photoshop (all packaged into the Photoshop product) and Adobe Lightroom, with Photoshop as a supplemental tool.

This of course is more important if you shoot large quantities of images and need to process them efficiently. If you are a fine art photographer and shoot and process few images at a time, then this won’t be so much of a consideration. Lightroom’s efficiency gains come from these key features: It is a streamlined application — it only has what photographers need — you are not navigating through a complex […more]
