Daily Debrief: Lightroom 2.0 aimed at photo enthusiasts
As an avid amateur photographer, my biggest problem with my online media has nothing to do with editing images, but organizing them first. I can click off several hundred photos of the family dog or a hiking trip, but before I even start tweaking colors of a sunset, I have a tough time even finding the right photograph. Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2.0 aims to help consumers with that common problem.
In Tuesday's edition of the Daily Debrief, I speak with senior writer and serious photographer Stephen Shankland about the new software released Monday. Retailing for $299 new or $99 as an upgrade, this 2.0 version seems to offer as many new organizational tools as editing ones. According to Shankland, some of the best features include the ability to apply edits to a batch of photos instead of one at a time. Also, the software will always maintain your original digital negative regardless of how many changes and edits you make.
