Adobe Releases Lightroom 5
« on: June 10, 2013, 09:05:18 AM »

SAN JOSE, Calif. — June 10, 2013  Adobe today announced the availability of Adobe® Photoshop® Lightroom® 5 for Mac OS® and Windows®. The product is available as an individual license or as part of Adobe Creative Cloud™. Designed for both photography enthusiasts and professionals alike, Lightroom 5 adds critical photo editing capabilities and creates groundbreaking workflows. Lightroom 5 was initially released as a free, public beta in April 2013.


“Lightroom was originally conceived through the requests of Adobe customers, and this feedback continues to drive each new iteration,” said Winston Hendrickson, vice president of products, Creative Media Solutions, Adobe. “As the digital photography landscape advances and evolves, Lightroom is the best solution for photographers and passionate hobbyists who want to get the most out of their digital images.”


New Features in Lightroom 5


Lightroom 5 adds powerful new editing tools to help photographers create better images faster. The Advanced Healing Brush enables customers to fix irregularly shaped imperfections such as dust spots, splotches, and other distractions with the precision and flexibility of a fine brush. The Upright tool analyzes each image to automatically straighten objects such as buildings and level horizons. Radial Gradients offer customers the control to make photo subjects stand out by applying off-center and multiple vignettes in a single image.


Lightroom 5 also brings extended sharing and publishing capabilities. New video slideshows enable customers to combine still images, video clips and music in a creative HD slideshow that can be viewed on almost any device. Updates to the Book module bring the ability to create, personalize and print elegant photo books from a variety of tailored, easy-to-use templates, as well as create customer-specific templates.


Smart Previews, new in Lightroom 5, enable photographers to make edits to their images offline, without bringing their entire library of original files with them. Edits and metadata changes to Smart Preview files are automatically applied to the original images when they are reconnected.


Pricing and Availability


Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5 is available now for immediate download for Adobe Creative Cloud members. Standalone software is available at Adobe.com and participating retailers for US$149 or US$79 for upgrades. For more detailed information about product features, upgrade policies, pricing and language versions, please visit www.adobe.com/go/lightroom.


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 http://www.youtube.com/lightroom.

Wow, quick turnaround from beta to final. Hope the bugs are fixed (adjustment brush being the most annoying to me)

So this is not a "CC" version?

Will LR continue to be a standalone product?

Adobe has asserted repeatedly that Lightroom will continue to be a stand-alone product. I take that to mean they haven't figured out a pricing structure that makes sense for a product that on upgrade only costs $80. But for a while at least, no CC.

It is both. You can buy it stand alone or as part of the creative cloud.

That's probably because it's really LR 4.5 not 5.  But even though they "short stroked" this one, LR is still the only reasonably priced Adobe product, and I'll probably be picking it up soon.

it has some JPG export bugs.
makes it useless for me right now.

i shoot raw but for proofs and web i need JPG.

look at the adobe lightroom forum for more infos.

i stick to LR 4 until they fixed the usual bugs they introduce with a full release.
v5.2 will maybe worth an upgrade...  ;D

How about a link.  There are thousands of posts on the Adobe forum, but none I could find saying the jpeg issue was there for the released version.  Lots of them for the beta.

All I can say is: DOES IT RUN FASTER THAN LR 4? CAN I ACTUALLY GET ANYTHING DONE WITH THIS ONE?!?!?!?!
