Adobe just announced the released of the Lightroom 4 Beta. IF your unfamiliar with Lightroom it is the industry standard program for photo processing. However with this beta comes an added treat, video processing!
Not sure how useful the new video processing features will be, but the DLSR video movement is not going away so this seems to be a really smart move from Adobe.
New Features in Lightroom 4 Beta
- Highlight and shadow recovery brings out all the detail that your camera captures in dark shadows and bright highlights.
- Photo book creation with easy-to-use elegant templates.
- Location-based organization lets you find and group images by location, assign locations to images, and display data from GPS-enabled cameras.
- White balance brush to refine and adjust white balance in specific areas of your images.
- Additional local editing controls let you adjust noise reduction and remove moiré in targeted areas of your images.
- Extended video support for organizing, viewing, and making adjustments and edits to video clips.
- Easy video publishing lets you edit and share video clips on Facebook and Flickr®.
- Soft proofing to preview how an image will look when printed with color-managed printers.
- Email directly from Lightroom using the email account of your choice.
Download the beta which expires on March 31, which I am sure is very close to the release date of the Adobe CS6 Suite.
