New release: Lightroom 4.3
Today (hey, for once I’m not very late in discovering it!) Adobe released Lightroom 4.3.
Daniel Etherington, who tested the beta version, mentions a number of new features in his blog:
* Support for Apples Retina high-res display.
* addition of a couple new Apple hardware profiles for Adobe’s automatic lens correction tools. The iPhone 4S and iPhone 5 are now available as options, which Lightroom should autodetect once you enable them.
* plenty of other new lens profiles (especially Canon and Leica lenses).
* new camera RAW support, including Canon’s just-released full-frame EOS 6D and the company’s celebrated pocket shooter, the PowerShot S110. Nikon’s 1 V2 mirrorless is also newly added, along with the D5200 and Sony’s full-frame compact fixed lens monster, the DSC-RX1.
Etherington’s verdict: “Developing photos in Lightroom 4.3 on either of Apple’s new Retina MacBook Pros is now a much more pleasant experience”.
Well, the download has completed; let’s go and try out if I get a “much more pleasant experience” on my old Mac, too… 😉
