It’s Official: Adobe Releases Lightroom 2

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2

From its extended beta sleep, Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2 is officially released today promising to further simplify photography workflows – managing, adjusting and presenting large volumes of digital photographs.

The new enhancements include dual-monitor support, radical advances in non-destructive localized image correction, and streamlined search capabilities.

Lightroom 2 is Adobe’s first application to support 64-bit processing for both Mac and Windows platforms, providing improved memory performance for dealing with large scale images.

“A worldwide community of photographers provided valuable insight and feedback, as part of the Lightroom 2 public beta program, ultimately helping us deliver a better product,” said Tom Hogarty, senior product manager for Lightroom and Camera Raw at Adobe. “We’ve considered their requests which helped us develop useful features that make it easier than ever for our customers to quickly refine, enhance and present brilliant photographs.”

Lightroom 2 is now available for $299; upgrade price from previous versions is $99.
