This could be nifty.

On Friday, Adobe sent version 4.3 of its Lightroom image editing software out as a candidate release via its Adobe Labs web site.

The new version, a 410 megabyte download, offers the following fixes and changes:
– Full support for HiDPI displays such as Retina Display units.

– Unable to upload a large panorama to Adobe Revel via the Revel Publish Plugin.

– Unable to add a second photo to a page layout in a Book. This only occurred when the “Show Unused Photos” filter is selected in the filmstrip.

– A photo can be flagged as both a “Pick” and “Reject” at the same time when using the Toolbar to apply flags.

– Using multiple fonts within the same text cell inside a Book can sometimes cause Lightroom to crash.

– Exposure becomes the active adjustment slider in the Basic panel (within Develop) when moving from image to image.

– Customers using Photoshop Elements 11 were unable to upgrade their catalogs in Lightroom 4.

– Custom Cell padding options in the Book Module reset in between Lightroom sessions

– 1080p video files shot on iPhone 4S flicker on replay.

– Leaving the Book Module after using multiple text colors in the same text cell can sometimes cause the book to be lost.

The latest Photoshop Lightroom 4 also expands camera support to include the following:
– Canon PowerShot S110

– Canon PowerShot G15

– Canon PowerShot SX50 HS

– Casio Exilim EX-ZR1000

– Casio Exilim EX-FC300S

– Nikon D600 (expanded to full support)

– Olympus PEN E-PL5

– Olympus PEN E-PM2

– Olympus STYLUS XZ-2 iHS

– Panasonic DMC-GH3

– Pentax K-5 II

– Pentax K-5 IIs

– Pentax Q10

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4 was officially released earlier this year for OS X and PC. It’s available for purchase for US$149 for new customers, or US$79 for those upgrading from a previous version.
