Photoshop Lightroom 1.0, Adobe’s professional photography workflow software, is now available for pre-order for $199 a pop.

After months of beta testing with pro photographers, Adobe said they are now ready to deliver a powerhouse professional photography tool. Photoshop Lightroom includes new functionality added since beta 4.1, with significant changes to the Library and Develop modules complementing improvements to the Slideshow, Print and Web components.

Adobe said LR features high quality RAW processing and supports the latest camera models such as the Nikon D40 and D80 and Pentax K10D.

Photoshop LR will begin shipping about two weeks from now. With its official release, the beta version expires on February 28, 2007.
