Adobe Announces Lightroom 2

July 31, 2008

One of the topics we’ve covered in-depth in CorelDRAW Unleashed magazine is the processing of RAW photos. CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X4 added the ability to process RAW images in the Camera Raw Lab. This certainly makes it very convenient to process the occasional RAW image, but it updates your image quite slowly.

For those of you who need to process large numbers of RAW photos, you may want to give the just announced Adobe Lightroom 2 a long look. Note that while it was announced, it will not begin shipping until August 15, 2008.

Not only can you process your RAW files with Lightroom, you can also use it to manage your files. This includes assigning tags and ratings to files and then being able to search those tags or ratings to find the file you need.

A really good review of Adobe Lightroom was posted on Cnet if you want to learn all of the details of this new release. If you’re ready to order, you can get either the full version or the upgrade version from I’m anxiously awaiting my upgrade so that I can give all the new features a test drive.
