Lightroom 4.0 Now Available

The Lightroom team is proud to announce the availability of Lightroom 4.0.  With over 300,000 downloads of the Lightroom 4 public beta we’ve heard some resounding feedback that photographers would like to start using Lightroom 4 on a daily basis and migrate their previous Lightroom work to this latest version.  We’re also excited to announce new pricing for Lightroom 4: $149 for those new to Lightroom and $79 for the Upgrade and Student/Teacher editions.  (You can upgrade from any version of Lightroom to Lightroom 4)

Get Started with Julieanne Kost’s fantastic video tutorial series

Changes since the public beta:

  • Reverse geocoding now available in the Map Module
  • Revamped and improved auto tone in Develop based on new controls
  • Increased range of local white balance controls (temperature and tint)
  • Updated Develop presets plus added new presets for video
  • Maximum Blurb book size is now 240 pages
  • Over 800 bugs found and fixed! (Thank you Lightroom 4 beta customers!)

Important Release Notes

  • We found a late bug in the Lightroom 4 book module that would cause text errors if Courier New, Times or Callibri is the selected font.  Please preview your books as a PDF before submitting to blurb when using those fonts
  • Norton Antivirus 2012 incorrectly flags video related program files in Lightroom 4 as possible threats. Please instruct Norton Antivirus 2012 to exclude Lightroom 4 files from its scan.
  • McAfee Virus Scan prevents emails from being sent from Lightroom 4. Please instruct McAfee Virus Scan to exclude Lightroom 4 files from its scan.
  • AVCHD support is limited to MTS and M2TS video files. Dedicated video editors (such as Premiere Pro) may need the AVCHD file structure to process the files.
  • Lightroom can sometimes crash when printing to PDF in Windows 7. Lowering the resolution of the PDF in the print driver can help mitigate this.

Thank You

The Lightroom team would thank our community of photographers for participating in the Lightroom 4 public beta.  We would also like to thank those “Most Valuable Contributors” who have worked very hard to provide guidance, plug-ins and support via various online forums.  MVC support has been crucial in helping many of our new customers and beta customers understand and learn all of the new features and functionality in Lightroom.
