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.
