Adobe has released the Open Beta of Lightroom 5.
Some of the new stuff:
- Smart Previews – offline editing on saved previews (with auto-apply to original image after it becomes available again)
- Improved Healing – spot removal brush
- Radial Filter – off-center vingetting
- Upright – Auto-straighten pictures
- PNG support
- Fullscreen mode
Plenty of sites reporting the news, but these sites are worth checking out:
- Howard Pinsky (Iceflow Studios) – nice visual demonstration of the new features as well as a bunch of videos where Howard goes through the features.
- Scott Kelby and Matt Kloskowski (NAPP) – a bunch of videos with Matt and Scott going through the features
- Laura Shoe – Video highlights of the new features
- Victoria Bampton – A very very long list of features – no walkthrough or video though
