Meet the Lightroom Team: Craig Marble

Continuing our series that introduces the Lightroom team here’s a short video profiling Craig Marble, Lightroom senior quality engineer.

Camera Raw 5.5 Available on Adobe Labs

The Camera Raw 5.5 and DNG Converter 5.5 Release Candidates are now available on Adobe Labs. The release includes new camera support for the following models:

  • Nikon D300s
  • Nikon D3000
  • Olympus E-P1
  • Panasonic DMC-FZ35

Of course you’ll also be able to read raw files from the new Ricoh GR Digital III but because they’re DNG files you didn’t need to wait for this update.

This release also includes a correction to the demosaic algorithms for Bayer sensor cameras with unequal green response.

Please provide feedback on your experience with the Camera Raw 5.5 plug-in and the DNG Converter on the Camera Raw User to User forum.

The Future of Lightroom and PowerPC

I tweeted this information yesterday but it deserves a broader announcement here on the blog. The next full version update of Lightroom will not run on PowerPC-based Mac computers. Lightroom 2 updates will continue to support PowerPC.

The Creative Suite made the same announcement yesterday via their FAQ and John Nack added his color commentary as well.
