Adobe Releases Lightroom 2.2 Update

Got the following email today on Adobe’s new Lightroom 2.2 Upgrade. I’m continuously impressed with how much better my work flow is now that I’ve switched to Lightroom 2.

“Adobe has released an update to its Photoshop Lightroom software, available immediately as a free upgrade for existing Lightroom 2 users. Lightroom 2.2 adds raw support for seven new camera models including the Canon EOS 5D Mark II and Canon PowerShot G10.

In addition, Adobe’s Camera Profiles are now available natively within Lightroom 2.2 and are provided automatically as part of this release. As the visual starting point for the raw processing work flow, camera profiles provide flexibility that allows photographers to quickly achieve their desired rendering.

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2 is essential for today’s digital photography workflow with quick options for importing, processing, managing, and showcasing images.

    Totally agree Since using LR 2 I rarely need to go into ps anymore.

    Local brush-based edits of exposure, brightness, sharpness, clarity, saturation, and contrast, which are nondestructive and future-editable has made a huge difference in my post-processing. I really enjoy the LR 2 experience. I tried the latest version of Aperture, but any local brushed-based edits get baked into a huge tiff that has to be first created – and can’t be subsequently edited. And then that big tiff needs to stay around forever. Sheeesh…

    LR 2 the only way to go…
