A treat, fix, and update for Adobe Lightroom users
Adobe updates make Photoshop Lightroom compatible with third party plug-ins, Apple's Leopard, and seven new cameras.
Adobe on Thursday issued three upgrades for users of its Photoshop Lightroom software.
The biggest news for some may be that Adobe Labs is offering a preview copy of Lightroom Export SDK, an application that will allow Lightroom users to export photos to Web sites, third-party software, and devices.
Meanwhile, the Lightroom 1.3 update should fix compatibility issues with Apple's Leopard Mac OS X 10.5. Previously, Adobe had warned that , though it was still safe to use most features. Adobe had previously announced that the fix would be released in mid-November.
Adobe also released a Photoshop Camera Raw 4.3 update which includes support for seven new cameras: the Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III and PowerShot G9, the Nikon D3 and D300, the Olympus E-3 and SP-560 UZ, and the Panasonic DMC-L10.
Lightroom 1.3, which uses the same engine to process raw photos taken directly from camera image sensors, now also supports the new cameras.
