With the availability of Lightroom 5, Lightroom is primed to be a major player in the photo editing market, along side Photoshop. To start, Lightroom has advanced radial filters, improved resizing, and improved adjustments for skin tones. Lightroom may even be able to someday complete the unification of RAW and JPEG editing by exporting a level of control over post-processing adjustments when exporting a JPEG.
Before they could do even that much, Adobe rolled out Lightroom 5.0. It features the new “Smart Preview,” which adjusts as you move the cursor around. Instead of showing you your photos and making you scroll, Lightroom 5 displays your projects as a list, one at a time. If you want more, you can merge photos, close Browser windows, and the “Lens Corrections” makes it easier to get just the right setting.
Lightroom 5.0 is a major update, and it’s one of the best Lightroom software releases to date. It may even be better than what they released in March, because this is the first Lightroom to pack the significant number of features that have been tucked away in the stream of every new update.

Adobe has just released a major update for Photoshop CC, the latest version of the popular graphics design and editing package for the latest Mac and Windows computers. The new professional editing tool supports large files and features editing tools such as Content-Aware Fill and Smart Objects. “Smart” objects use metadata to access content-aware elements of a digital file, including a user-created mask, to update a design element with accurate color, tone or style without affecting the original file. The update also introduces features for advanced manipulation of multiple files for easier and faster editing. 933d7f57e6
When we first got the Note Pro 10.1 with a 16 gigtye SSD / 8 gigabyte RAM configuration, it took some minutes to boot up, and normally a couple of minutes beyond that to get a comfortable, usable tablet.
Where you can now comment on the physical appearance of a specific image in the Photoshop PSD file. Users can select a photo or image from among a variety of existing choices, enter a comment that’s visible to all users, and see that comment appear in-place in the document as a response to their suggestion. The more users who visit a document with their suggestions, the more comments the reviewer will see, and the more powerful the response is likely to be.
We’re introducing a greatly expanded set of new degrees of freedom as well as transport and sharing options for videos and images. Import and export enhancements, new controls, and workflow changes are the main additions. Although Quick Edit is included in the free version, it has been split off into a separate product called ProShot, so that the new Quick Edit and other additions take up developer time and attention.
Wrap Up We’ve tested the version 5 of Photoshop and Lightroom for several months and the operating system is 64 bit so there is no need to make any hardware or stability modifications. Actually Adobe has done the preparation in detail.
The last important modding is the new resizing tool module “Create”, which allows users to quickly select various degrees of adjustments to objects and then stretch or scale them to different size.Of course, I would have been perfectly happy to end this review at this point, but unfortunately the last question brings us on to the downsides of Adobe’s rightly popular image management and RAW converter tool. I did say Lightroom emphasizes speed, but perhaps clarifying this statement is in order. The emphasis on speed lies in the flexibility of available tools. For example, you can now do some advanced image “healing” with the updated Spot Removal tool and remove objects that are more complex than simple dots. And that saves you time working with Photoshop on the same image, which I personally appreciate very much. When it comes to the actual speed of operation, however, things haven’t really changed for the better. Importing is, if anything, slightly slower. The same with Exporting, which also feels to be more sluggish than before. Use that brilliant Spot Removal tool too many times on too many photographs and you may experience lag when changing adjustments or moving from one image to another. Other obvious bugs and performance issues do not make a very good impression, either. Of course, complex Spot Removal shapes are bound to eat up those resources. After all, there is quite a bit of vectoring involved, not to mention that the image is not actually changed since Lightroom applies changes non-destructively. In essence, any adjustments you perform, including the Spot Removal and the Radial Filter tools, remain as descriptions that must be read by the software. Even so, I believe that a careful optimization of how computer resources are used, as well as some database tweaking should be possible. Or perhaps Adobe needs to start utilizing some in-memory database processing features that we see in enterprise-class databases and applications today. Yes, the speed of modern computers is faster than ever, but with the software getting more and more complex, I feel that Adobe should invest some time in optimizing and tweaking it. It took Adobe a while to add full 64-bit support to Lightroom and I am not sure how well it actually utilizes multi-core CPUs and caching technologies. Probably not enough, considering how slow Lightroom can get.
