Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4, the essential digital photography workflow solution helping amateur and professional photographers quickly import, manage, enhance and showcase their images, is now available in the Mac App Store.
Launched in March, Lightroom 4 is a major release, adding significant new capabilities and innovations.
New adjustment controls maximize dynamic range from cameras, recovering exceptional shadow details and highlights.
The software features new and improved auto adjustments to dynamically set values for exposure and contrast, and additional local adjustment controls including Noise Reduction, Moire and White Balance.
Lightroom 4 provides photographers the tools to create beautiful photo books with text controls and a variety of easy-to-use templates, as well as a direct link for photo book creation from within the new Book module.
A new intuitive Map module displays images already assigned a location, provides location tagging and reverse geo-tagging controls and saved locations for easy assignment of a photographer’s common locations.
Now, native video support gives photographers the capability to play, trim and extract frames from video clips shot on DSLRs, point-and-shoot cameras and smartphones.
Video-specific presets and many standard Lightroom image adjustment controls can be applied to video clips, and adjusted videos can be exported as a H.264 file or published directly to Facebook or Flickr.
