Camera Raw 7.1 & DNG Converter 7.1 now available
Per the Lightroom Journal:
Camera Raw 7.1 is now available on Adobe.com and through the update mechanism in Adobe Photoshop CS6. Camera Raw 7.1 adds new Defringe controls to help address chromatic aberration. Defringe is available as part of the Lens Correction panel. Camera Raw can also now read 16-bit, 24-bit, and 32-bit HDR files. Supported HDR formats are TIFF and DNG. Photoshop CS6 customers can upgrade to Camera Raw 7.1. Customers of previous versions of Photoshop can utilize DNG Converter 7.1 for raw file support for newly added cameras.
See the LR Journal post for a list of the dozens of cameras now supported & new lens profiles added.
Lightroom user group meeting in SJ tonight
Lightroom team members will be on hand at Adobe HQ in San Jose tonight to discuss, among other things, the new Defringe and HDR Tone Controls introduced in Lightroom 4.1.
One of the suggestions we got at our last meeting was that we provide some time for networking, in addition to the presentation itself. I think this is a fabulous idea, so how about this: bring a photo that you’ve taken that you love. You can bring it on your laptop, tablet, phone, or printed on an honest-to-goodness piece of paper. Then, while enjoying complimentary pizza prior to the presentation, share your photo with at least one other person (someone not previously known to you!) and talk about why you like it. People who choose not to bring a photo will be publicly scorned.
The meeting will be held in the ‘Park’ conference room. If you haven’t RSVP’d more than 24 hours in advance, you’ll need to get a badge from security when you arrive.”
