Found on the Adobe.com home page is the announcement that Adobe Photoshop Lightroom has moved from Labs and beta status to Lightroom 1.0 Release.
I have been using the beta version of Light Room to manage the images from my recent trip (some 3000+ images in various formats) and have really found it an incredibly useful application for organising, sorting and preparing images for print.
The ability to search, filter and sort images via shoot, category and or key words is brilliant. I have also found the simple ‘Develop’ tools great for quick adjustments to Raw images prior to exporting for print.
the full product details are available from the Adobe Photoshop Lightroom product page.
