Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5 Now Available

LRMobile-300x292Adobe announced the availability of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5 for Mac OS and Windows today, offering intelligent photo editing features, solutions for remote workflows, and extended sharing and publishing capabilities.  As the digital photography landscape has advanced and evolved, Lightroom has kept pace, offering powerful new features and gaining recognition as the essential photography application for busy professionals and creative amateurs to get the most out of their digital images.

Among the powerful new photo editing tools included in Lightroom 5 are:

  • Advanced Healing Brush – helps fix imperfections with the precision and flexibility of a fine brush
  • Upright Tool – analyzes and automatically straightens objects such as buildings
  • Radial Gradient –  subjects stand out by applying off-center and multiple vignettes in a single image

Smart Previews allow photographers to make edits to their images offline with edits.  Changes made to Smart Previews are automatically applied to the original images when they are reconnected.  Additionally, new video slideshows can combine still images, video clips and music in a creative HD slideshow that can be viewed on almost any device, while updates to the Book module allow users to create, personalize and print beautiful photo books from a variety of tailored and easy-to-use or customer-specific templates.

Lightroom 5 was initially released as a free, public beta in April 2013. Since beta testing, a Behance Publish Service and more than 400 bug fixes have been incorporated into the final release. More detailed information about the updates in Lightroom 5, in addition to pricing and availability, can be found in the full press release here.

Customers can also connect with the Lightroom team directly on Facebook, via Twitter, or on the Adobe Lightroom blog. For Lightroom how-to videos, visit our YouTube channel.
