New offerings from Adobe revealed in Photoshop World 2008 keynote

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2.0 beta offers a public preview of new and improved functionality to be delivered in the next major release of the tool for professional photographers. Lightroom 2.0 beta will feature enhancements such as dual-monitor support, localized dodge
and burn correction and will be the first Adobe application to support 64-bit for Mac OS X 10.5 ("Leopard") on Intel Macs and Microsoft Vista 64-bit operating systems, according to Tom Hogarty, senior product manager for Photoshop Lightroom and Camera Raw.

An improved layout in the Library module allows for a more intuitive approach to image organization by simplifying the location of the features needed to find and filter photographs, he adds. A new feature called Smart Collections automatically updates collections with images that match desired criteria such as star-rating, keyword or other metadata.

Photoshop Lightroom 2.0 beta includes improved memory handling through 64-bit support for Mactels running Leopard. Additional enhancements in Lightroom 2.0 beta include support for a dual monitor configuration that maximizes a photographer's workspace and can be adjusted to meet a particular workflow.

Additionally, the Develop module has been updated to provide the ability to correct specific parts of an image without affecting other areas. Now, fundamental photographic techniques such as dodge and burn can be performed using the same non-destructive approach.

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2.0 beta is available as a 30-day trial for [url=http://www.labs.adobe.com/downloads]free download[/url] on Mac and Windows platforms. Existing Lightroom 1.0 customers will be able to test the beta for an extended period until Aug. 31 and can invite friends to take part in this trial period.

In other news, photographer and bestselling author Mikkel Aaland is offering a Tasmania adventure that will allow photographers from all over the world to test the Lightroom improvements in Tasmania and showcase images of the country using the new software.
