Lightroom is really the ideal photographer’s tool – especially when used in conjunction with Photoshop -
has been updated by Adobe and our own Island Dog has written about it.
Lightroom 5 new features:
- Advanced Healing Brush: Enhancements to the Spot Removal tool allow you to heal or clone using brush strokes. A new “Visualize Spots” tool highlights sensor dust spots for easy removal.
- Radial Filter: Apply any of Lightroom’s local adjustment attributes to a circular mask. The area of the mask can be resized, feathered or even inverted to give you maximum control over the focus of your images.
- Upright: Automatically level horizons, straight buildings, and correct other askew lines.
- Smart Preview: Lightroom allows you to edit offline images by storing a smaller version of the original image, called a smart preview. Edits made to the Smart Preview will automatically apply to the original once reconnected to Lightroom.
There are some subtle changes as well ... check them out here (thanks, Hank):
