As most of you probably already know, Lightroom 1.3 was released along with it’s export SDK. What alot of you might not know is that along with this release Adobe has snuck in a few other releases to include Photoshop 10.0.1, Adobe Camera Raw 4.3, Adobe Bridge, and Acrobat 8 Professional updates.
Lightroom 1.3 Update
Newly Supported Raw File Formats:
Canon 1Ds Mark III
Canon PowerShot G9
Olympus SP-560 UZ
Lightroom 1.3 includes corrections for the following issues:
- Writing XMP metadata automatically has been corrected for performance issues
- Printing with the native resolution option enabled no longer sets the wrong dimension for portrait oriented images
- Prior to Camera Raw 4.3 there was the possibility that artifacts in edge transitions could be introduced through the
Bayer demosaic and luminance noise reductions algorithms. This has been corrected.
- The Canon sRAW format and the Fuji compressed RAF formats are now supported.
Lightroom 1.3 includes the following enhancements:
- The import dialog now offers the option to render 1:1 previews as part of the import process
- The export dialog layout has been enhanced
- A Lightroom Preview Export SDK is available for developers to create and distribute Export Plug-ins. Further details
are located on Adobe Labs
Adobe Photoshop 10.0.1 Update
This update does not explicitly say it makes Photoshop Leopard compatible.
The most significant fixes in the Photoshop 10.0.1 update include the following:
- The speed of moving objects contained within multiple layer sets has been improved.
- Converting images to CMYK using certain profiles no longer results in black files.
- The Save for Web feature now includes an option to “Include XMP” (metadata) in the settings menu within the main Save for Web interface, making the existing capability easier to access.
- When using Save For Web with “Include XMP” enabled, all XMP data is now included in the optimized file.
- Print color matching has been improved.
- Images saved as DICOM and reopened in Photoshop CS3 are no longer corrupted on PowerPCï¾® based Mac computers.
I’m not going to expand on the other updates. Head over to Adobe to find out more.
