Adobe delves deeper in digital workflow
January 21st, 2006 by scaredpoet


Adobe Labs is uncovering the wraps on its latest workflow piece: Project Lightroom. Releasing the program as a public beta through June 2006, the program is first available as a Mac version, with a Windows Beta release soon to follow. What does Lightroom do?

Adobe? Lightroom? Beta is the efficient new way for professional photographers to import, select, develop, and showcase large volumes of digital images. So you can spend less time sorting and refining photographs, and more time actually shooting them. Its clean, elegant interface literally steps out of the way and lets you quickly view and work with the images you shot today, as well as the thousands of images that you will shoot over the course of your career. Because no two photographers work alike, Adobe Lightroom adapts to your workflow, not the other way around.

In a nutshell, this appears to be a far more powerful, professional and soon-to-be less secular version of Apple’s Aperture software. I feel though that both packages are aiming for the high-end, hard core digital photography afficionados, while most of the tools provided by each package will probably go over the heads of the average end user. For basic needs, Picasa might even do the job.
