David Chartier has recently posted his first impression review on Adobe Lightroom, the latest program from Adobe which will help digital photographers to import, select, develop, and showcase large volumes of digital images.
“it’s fantastic. I’m running it on the latest version of the 15″ PowerBook G4, with a hi-res screen, 1.67 GHz G4 and 1.5 GB RAM, and it runs quick. App startup time is virtually nil, and the whole thing just feels zippy. It offers a great array of features centered around this image comparison/organization paradigm, and some of them are the type of tools where, upon using them, I never even realized I was missing. Some of the toolsets are simply a sort of remixing of the tools and palettes found in Photoshop, offering a very different and handy UI for accomplishing the same kinds of editing, touching up, print preparation and comparison tasks”
