Not that Lightroom 3 is not a great product created for photographesr, rather than designers workflow for cataloging, developing and exporting digital photos, its just that the latest version of Lightroom, Lightroom 4 is released tomorrow!
The new Lightroom promises to have improvements in hightlight and shadow recovery for more dynamic range as well as photo book creation, enhanced online sharing integration, video publishing and video support, location-based image tagging, white balance, noise reduction, and moiré-removal brushes and advanced black and white conversions.
If you haven't tried Lightroom before but use Photoshop you'll want to know that the one most notable difference between Photoshop and Lightroom is the nondestructive environment. When making adjustments to images within Lightroom, changes are recorded within a cache and only applied to your image once saved. Lightroom doesn’t require as complex a workflow to undo edits—no use of layers, etc. This allows you to be a bit more experimental and risky with your corrections without the fear of overwriting your original files.
The upgrade is going to cost $79 so hopefully it will lead to a few more sales.
