Originally posted as release candidates for community testing on Adobe Labs, these final versions include raw file support for 20 new popular camera models, including the Canon EOS 7D and Nikon D3s. Additional DNG support has been added for the Leica M9 and Ricoh GXR camera models. A full list of the newly supported cameras is below.
The updates also provide a fix for an issue affecting PowerPC customers using the final Lightroom 2.5 and Camera Raw 5.5 updates on the Mac. The issue, introduced in the demosaic change to address sensors with unequal green response, has the potential to create artifacts in the highlight area while using the Highlight Recovery tool in raw files from Sony, Olympus, Panasonic and various medium format digital camera backs.
Adobe would like to thank everyone who downloaded and provided feedback on the Lightroom 2.6 and Camera Raw 5.6 Release Candidates. Lightroom 2 software is today’s digital photography workflow solution, allowing photographers to quickly import, process, manage and showcase images, and the Photoshop Camera Raw plug-in provides fast and easy access within Photoshop to the raw image formats produced by many leading digital cameras. Adobe’s Digital Negative (DNG) format is a publicly available archival format for the raw files generated by digital cameras.
Pricing and Availability
Lightroom 2.6 is available as a free download for existing Lightroom 2 customers, and Photoshop Camera Raw 5.6 is available as a free download for existing customers of Photoshop CS4, Photoshop Elements 8 (Win/Mac) and Premiere Elements 8.

Adobe Updates Camera Raw, Lightroom and DNG http://photoshopnews.com/2009/06/24/adobe-updates-camera-raw-and-lightroom-and-dng/ http://photoshopnews.com/2009/06/24/adobe-updates-camera-raw-and-lightroom-and-dng/#comments Wed, 24 Jun 2009 05:17:50 +0000 PSN Editorial Staff http://photoshopnews.com/?p=3075 Adobe today released the final Photoshop Lightroom 2.4 and Camera Raw 5.4 updates, available for immediate download at www.adobe.com/downloads/updates/. Both updates bring additional raw file support to 31 camera and camera back models including the Canon EOS 500D, Nikon D5000 and 18 Hasselblad models. A full list of the newly supported camera and camera back models is below.
In addition, Adobe released an update to its Digital Negative specification (DNG), the public archival format for digital camera raw data. DNG addresses the lack of an open standard for raw files created by individual camera models, helping to ensure that photographers will be able to access their files in the future.
DNG 1.3 now includes opcodes, a defined list of operations and their parameters for performing complex activities in the raw file conversion process. These activities include corrections and enhancements that are beneficial when performed prior to the demosaic process but are difficult due to a camera’s limited processing power. They also include corrections and enhancements that can only be performed after the demosaic process such as lens correction. By utilizing opcodes, photographers can maintain the advantages of raw mosaic data, giving them increased opportunity to improve their photographs with the maximum amount of image data preserved. The DNG SDK has also been updated to reflect the changes to the specification.
Pricing and Availability
The Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2.4 update is available as a free download for existing Lightroom 2 customers and Camera Raw 5.4 is available as a free download for existing customers of Photoshop CS4, Photoshop Elements 7, Premiere Elements 7 and Photoshop Elements 6 for Mac. For more information and to download the updates visit: www.adobe.com/downloads/updates/. Details on the updated DNG Specification and SDK are available on www.adobe.com/dng.

Perspective correction for Camera Raw images http://photoshopnews.com/2009/05/06/perspective-correction-for-camera-raw-images/ http://photoshopnews.com/2009/05/06/perspective-correction-for-camera-raw-images/#comments Wed, 06 May 2009 06:59:47 +0000 Martin Evening http://photoshopnews.com/?p=3058 acr-perspective1

This movie extract is from  Adobe Photoshop CS4 for Photographers: The Ultimate Workshop.

One of the top requests for Camera Raw and Lightroom has been to include perspective corrections, so that users can apply perspective corrections to raw images. It so happens there is already a method in Camera Raw and Photoshop that will allow you to correct the perspective of a raw photograph while keeping the image in its original raw file state. This isn’t exactly a hidden feature in Camera Raw, but this movie does demonstrate a workaround for correcting perspective of raw files while keeping them fully editable in Camera Raw. Here’s how it can be done.

Please note this video is in Quicktime format. A player can be downloaded from apple.com.

This movie extract is a smaller version of the one found on the DVD disc that comes with  Adobe Photoshop CS4 for Photographers: The Ultimate Workshop, jointly authored by Martin Evening and Jeff Schewe. The book is published by Focal Press and contains 400 pages of tutorials and tips on how to achieve the best results out of Camera Raw and Photoshop. You can also find out more about the book by visiting the Photoshop for Photographers website where you can preview more of the content that will be appearing in this book.

The new cameras added in the Camera Raw 4.6 update will need to be rolled out in a Camera Raw 5.1 update some time next week. He also noted that as of the release of Camera Raw 5.0 and Photoshop CS4 the DNG Profiles are still considered “beta”. News about the final release of the profiles and a revision to DNG Profile Editor are expected “soon”.

What’s new in Photoshop CS4 by Martin Evening http://photoshopnews.com/2008/09/24/what%e2%80%99s-new-in-cs4-by-martin-evening/ http://photoshopnews.com/2008/09/24/what%e2%80%99s-new-in-cs4-by-martin-evening/#comments Wed, 24 Sep 2008 09:28:30 +0000 Martin Evening http://photoshopnews.com/?p=2788

Photoshop CS3 had some mixed reviews. It didn’t have quite as many features of interest to photographers as say, previous versions of the program. I think such responses may also have been influenced by the introduction of Lightroom 1, which was definitely designed with photographers in mind. It is probably fair to say that there was a certain amount of envy among the Photoshop team to the ‘new kid on the block’. Well, Photoshop CS4 has arrived, hot on the heels of Lightroom 2 and it’s time to see how the new version of the ‘mother ship’ program shapes up.

As far as Photoshop CS4 itself goes, I think photographers will be very pleased with some the new changes here. Photoshop now has a smart dark gray interface and adopted a task-based approach to image editing and this can be seen in the way image adjustments are now accessible within their own panel. When you combine this with the ability to non-destuctively edit a layer mask, you’ll discover that the  Photoshop CS4 image editing system offers the most flexible yet for pixel image editing.

Adobe Releases Camera Raw 4.6 RC http://photoshopnews.com/2008/09/18/adobe-releases-camera-raw-46-rc/ http://photoshopnews.com/2008/09/18/adobe-releases-camera-raw-46-rc/#comments Thu, 18 Sep 2008 17:13:19 +0000 PSN Editorial Staff http://photoshopnews.com/?p=2763 To address new camera compatibilities, Adobe has released a preliminary version of Camera Raw 4.6. It’s considered a release candidate (RC) which is considered a bit beyond beta in terms of internal testing. In addition to Camera Raw 4.6, DNG Converter 4.6 has also been released. People who have new cameras and wish to import those images into Lightroom 2.0 will need to use the DNG Converter until Lightroom is also updated.

The downloads are available from Adobe Labs.

The RC update adds official support for;

 

  • Fuji Finepix IS Pro
  • Nikon D700
  • Nikon D90
  • Nikon Coolpix P6000
It also adds unofficial (preliminary) support for Canon Rebel XS, Canon 50D, Olympus SP-565 UZ, Sony A900 and Sigma DP1.

Adobe Releases Beta Camera Profiles and DNG Profile Editor http://photoshopnews.com/2008/07/28/adobe-releases-beta-camera-profiles-and-dng-profile-editor/ http://photoshopnews.com/2008/07/28/adobe-releases-beta-camera-profiles-and-dng-profile-editor/#comments Tue, 29 Jul 2008 04:35:11 +0000 PSN Editorial Staff http://photoshopnews.com/?p=2709 Adobe has released new beta camera profiles for Camera Raw 4.5 and Lightroom 2.0 as well as a beta of the new application called DNG Profile Editor for editing DNG profiles. The betas of the profiles and the editor app are on Adobe Labs.

From the DNG Profiles page:

Overview
We have been actively working on improving color rendering for digital raw photographs. Our new color rendering package contains the following components:

  • the DNG 1.2 specification, which expands and formalizes the concept of a color profile for raw (i.e., scene-referred) image data captured by digital sensors,
  • Adobe Standard camera profiles that significantly improve color rendering, especially in reds, yellows, and oranges,
  • Camera Matching profiles that match the camera manufacturers’ color appearance,
  • DNG Profile Editor, a free software utility for editing camera profiles

Public Beta
The new camera profiles and DNG Profile Editor are being initially distributed online in public beta form. This public beta gives photographers the opportunity to try these new tools and provide feedback before we finalize them.

muisichole.com regamp3.com mp3rolez.com mp3carz.com 1podmp3.com 1podmp3s.com 1podmp3z.com allofrnp3.com applemp3s.com quolitiesmp3.com naiomimp3.com torontomp3s.com futuremp3s.com mp3skylion.com mp3f1esta.com rnp3fiesta.com rnp3f1esta.com ipodmusicz.com

Requirements
The new Adobe Standard and Camera Matching camera profiles require Camera Raw 4.5 / Lightroom 2.0 or later. In general, they can be used in any raw converter that supports DNG 1.2.

These camera profiles will NOT work correctly with earlier versions of Camera Raw (i.e., 4.4.1 and earlier) and Lightroom (i.e., 1.4.1 and earlier). These earlier versions do not support DNG 1.2.

The DNG Profile Editor’s basic system requirements (i.e., CPU, operating system, and memory) are the same as Lightroom’s requirements.

Resources
Since the profiles and DNG Profile Editor are still in public beta, there is no official Adobe support for them. However, we have put together an online FAQ, tutorials, and documentation to help you get started with both the profiles and DNG Profile Editor. You are also encouraged to post questions in the User-To-User forums (see links below).

From the Camera Raw 4.5 Read Me:

Working with Lightroom 2 and Adobe Photoshop Camera Raw
Lightroom and Photoshop Camera Raw share the same image processing technology to ensureconsistent and compatible results across applications that support raw processing. These applications include Photoshop CS3, Photoshop Elements 6.0 and Premiere Elements 4.0. Photoshop Camera Raw 4.5

Adobe applications must be updated with the Camera Raw 4.5 plug-in in order to ensure compatibility with Lightroom 2 develop module settings. Photoshop CS3 users can update the Camera Raw plug-in automatically using the Update tool listed under the Help menu. The Camera Raw 4.5 plug-in can also be downloaded and installed manually by visiting the Adobe web site: www.adobe.com/products/photoshop/cameraraw.html. Please follow the installation instructions carefully.

Sharing Lightroom Settings with Camera Raw 4.5
By default, Lightroom’s develop module settings are stored in Lightroom’s database. In order to ensure that Lightroom develop settings can be viewed by Camera Raw 4.5 the settings must be written to the XMP metadata block for that file. This metadata is stored in an XMP sidecar file (Imagename.xmp) in the current image directory of proprietary raw files or stored directly within DNG files. To update images with the latest develop settings, choose the library module and select the group of target images. Choose the “Export XMP Metadata to File” option in the Metadata:XMP file menu. Note: This menu option is only available in the Lightroom Library.

Viewing Lightroom settings in Camera Raw 4.5
Before working in conjunction with Lightroom and Camera Raw please set the Camera Raw preference to: Save image settings in: Sidecar “.xmp” files. By default Camera Raw will display the image adjustments exactly as performed in Lightroom’s develop module. However, at this time Camera Raw 4.5 is unable to support further adjustments to the following settings or tools:
• Clone/Heal Opacity
• Post Crop Vignette
• Graduated Filter Adjustment
• Local Adjustment Brush
The controls currently available in Camera Raw 4.5 will continue to function normally and provide incremental edits beyond those performed in Lightroom. The Lightroom adjustments that are not available in Camera Raw 4.5 can be cleared by choosing the “Clear Imported Settings” option in the Camera Raw settings menu.

Viewing Camera Raw settings in Lightroom
Raw files edited by previous versions of Camera Raw files will maintain their previous appearance when imported into Lightroom. Note: Those files must have been edited with the preference set to Save image settings in: Sidecar “.xmp” files in order for Lightroom to respect the previous edit. Files edited in Camera Raw after importation into Lightroom can be updated in Lightroom by choosing the “Read Metadata from File” from the Metadata file menu. Note: This menu option is only available in the Lightroom Library.

This new version of the Camera Raw plug-in replaces the original Camera Raw plug-in that was installed with Photoshop CS3, Photoshop Elements 6.0 and Premiere Elements 4.0. The Camera Raw 4.5 plug-in is not compatible with versions of Photoshop earlier than Photoshop CS3 or versions of Photoshop Elements earlier than Photoshop Elements 5.0 for Windows and Photoshop Elements 4.01 for Mac.

The latest version of the Camera Raw plug-in available for Photoshop Elements 3.0 customers is Camera Raw 3.6. The latest version of the Camera Raw plug-in available for Photoshop Elements 4.0 (Windows) is Camera Raw 3.7.

Adobe Releases Photoshop Lightroom 2 http://photoshopnews.com/2008/07/28/adobe-releases-photoshop-lightroom-2/ http://photoshopnews.com/2008/07/28/adobe-releases-photoshop-lightroom-2/#comments Tue, 29 Jul 2008 03:58:08 +0000 PSN Editorial Staff http://photoshopnews.com/?p=2704

Major Software Upgrade Further Simplifies Photography Workflows

Press Release: SAN JOSE, Calif. — July 29, 2008 — Adobe Systems Incorporated (Nasdaq:ADBE) today announced the immediate availability of Adobe® Photoshop® Lightroom® 2 software, the photographer’s essential toolbox for managing, adjusting and presenting large volumes of digital photographs. With new enhancements such as dual-monitor support, radical advances in non-destructive localized image correction, and streamlined search capabilities, Lightroom 2 is a compelling upgrade that simplifies photography from shoot to finish. As Adobe’s first application to support 64-bit for Mac OS X 10.5 Macintosh computers with Intel® processors and Microsoft® Windows® Vista® 64bit operating systems, Lightroom 2 also provides 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.

Photoshop Lightroom 2: Smarter, Faster and More Accurate
The enhanced Library module in Lightroom 2 helps streamline and accelerate photographers’workflows. With the ability to visually organize images across multiple hard drives, Lightroom 2 and its powerful Library Filter Bar makes it easy for users to quickly find the images they need. The Suggested Keywords feature helps photographers keyword their images by making intelligent suggestions based on their own previous efforts. New dual-monitor support allows users to expand their workspace, giving them flexibility to edit and organize images in a way that maximizes an additional display.

In the Develop module, the new Local Adjustment Brush lets photographers fine-tune specific areas of an image to precisely adjust color, exposure and tonal range without affecting other areas of the image. The new Graduated Filter expands the toolbox in Lightroom, allowing for edits to larger areas by applying gradually diminishing or increasing adjustment effects such as exposure, clarity, and saturation, alone, or in any combination. Lightroom 2 also helps photographers print more efficiently by quickly arranging photos of multiple sizes on one or many pages with flexible and customizable templates to maximize paper and ink. Intelligent algorithms automatically determine optimal sharpening for screen or print, producing crisper images faster.

Developers can further extend the Lightroom workflow with Web, Export and Metadata Software Development Kits available at the Adobe Developer Connection, http://www.adobe.com/devnet/.

Ground-Breaking Innovation in Raw Technology
New raw technology gives photographers access to flexible camera profiles. Camera profiles are the visual starting point for the raw processing workflow, but image preferences vary for every photographer. To minimize surprises, Adobe is supplying default camera profiles that closely emulate the visual looks that photographers are used to seeing from their favorite camera, while also providing the ability to create highly customized profiles to suit different tastes. Camera profiles are available for immediate download on Adobe Labs (http://labs.adobe.com) for use with Lightroom 2 and Camera Raw 4.5, along with the DNG Profile Editor for the community to test and create their own profiles.

The Adobe Camera Raw 4.5 plug-in and DNG Converter 4.5 are also now available on Adobe.com and support over 190 camera models including the Olympus E 420 and E 520 models.

“One of the big reasons why Lightroom has become such a phenomenon among serious photographers is that Adobe built it with the input of a very vocal user community,” said Scott Kelby, president of the National Association of Photoshop Professionals (NAPP). “Adobe really listens to the issues and challenges today’s photographers face and they’ve built a complete solution that not only meets the needs of photographers; it really feels like it was made just for us. The enhancements to Lightroom 2, combined with the power of Photoshop, give photographers the ultimate freedom to produce professional images quickly.”

Pricing and Availability
Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2 is available now through the Adobe Store at www.adobe.com/store in English, French and German with the Japanese language version planned to be released at a future date. The estimated street price is USD$299 for new users with an upgrade price of USD$99 for registered users of qualifying Lightroom customers. Recommended system requirements are Macintosh OSX 10.4, 10.5 1 GHz PowerPC G4 or G5 or Intel® based processor, or Microsoft Windows® XP SP2 or Windows Vista Home Premium, Business, Ultimate, or Enterprise, Intel Pentium 4® processor, 1 GB RAM and a 1024×768 resolution screen. Additional information on product features, upgrade policies, pricing, and language versions is available on www.adobe.com/products/photoshoplightroom/.

Adobe Yanks Lightroom 1.4 & Camera Raw 4.4 http://photoshopnews.com/2008/03/16/adobe-yanks-lightroom-14-camera-raw-44/ http://photoshopnews.com/2008/03/16/adobe-yanks-lightroom-14-camera-raw-44/#comments Mon, 17 Mar 2008 00:17:19 +0000 PSN Editorial Staff http://photoshopnews.com/2008/03/16/adobe-yanks-lightroom-14-camera-raw-44/ The Lightroom 1.4 update for Mac and Windows has been temporarily removed from the Adobe.com web site. Those Lightroom users who have installed Lightroom 1.4 should uninstall the update and install Lightroom 1.3.1.(Mac, Win) until a further update can be provided.

For those not in immediate need of the updated camera support available in Camera Raw 4.4 or the DNG 4.4 Converter, it’s recommended that you also continue working with the 4.3.1 versions. (Mac, Win) This decision is based on the following errors that have been discovered with the recent update:

EXIF Time Stamp Error: There is an error in the EXIF time stamp update technology that causes Lightroom to believe that the files are out of sync with the correct time stamp as displayed in Lightroom. Any ensuing metadata update will attempt to incorrectly modify the EXIF time stamp in the original raw file itself. This is the only metadata field that Lightroom will write to an original proprietary raw file. This error will not impact the integrity of your image data. The Camera Raw plug-in also will incorrectly change the EXIF time stamp in files converted by the plug-in. The information written to the XMP sidecar files or XMP metadata in the converted files will remain correct.

DNG Conversion Error(Windows Only): With the latest version of the Lightroom 1.4 and Camera Raw 4.4 applications, Adobe has included technology to verify that the image data in a DNG file is unchanged from when it was originally converted to DNG. Unfortunately, when converting to DNG using Lightroom 1.4 on Windows, the application will write an incorrect verification tag to describe the image data. When Lightroom attempts to work with those files in the Develop module, the application reads that incorrect tag, believes that there is something wrong with the raw data and will present an error. Rest assured, there is nothing wrong with the integrity of your image data or metadata. For those that have already converted their files to DNG using Lightroom 1.4 (Windows only) we recommend using the DNG 4.3.1 converter to convert the DNG files you’ve created with Lightroom 1.4.

Olympus Conversion Error: There is an error in converting Olympus JPEG files to other formats in Lightroom 1.4 and the Camera Raw 4.4 plug-in.
To uninstall Lightroom 1.4 please see the instructions per your platform:
Mac: Delete the Lightroom application in the Application folder(Mac) and Delete the following file: Library/Receipts/Adobe Photoshop Lightroom.pkg
Windows: Choose the Uninstall Lightroom 1.4 menu item from the Windows start menu. The Add/Remove Program utility on Windows will also achieve the same result.

To replace the Camera Raw 4.4 plug-in with the 4.3.1 plug-in, follow the manual installation instructions provided on the download page linked above.

Additional information regarding a further update (expected to be LR 1.4.1 and CR 4.4.1) will be posted to the Lightroom Journal blog when it becomes available.

Adobe Ships Camera Raw 4.4 and Lightroom 1.4 http://photoshopnews.com/2008/03/14/adobe-ships-camera-raw-44-and-lightroom-14/ http://photoshopnews.com/2008/03/14/adobe-ships-camera-raw-44-and-lightroom-14/#comments Fri, 14 Mar 2008 07:53:54 +0000 PSN Editorial Staff http://photoshopnews.com/2008/03/14/adobe-ships-camera-raw-44-and-lightroom-14/ The Lightroom 1.4 and Camera Raw 4.4 updates have been posted to the following locations: Lightroom(Mac, Win), Camera Raw(Mac, Win). The updates include support for the following new camera models:

Canon EOS 450D (Digital Rebel XSi/EOS Kiss X2)
Fujifilm S100FS
Nikon D60
Olympus SP-570 UZ
Pentax K20D
Pentax K200D
Sony A200
Sony A300
Sony A350

Lightroom 1.4 and Camera Raw 4.4 include corrections for the following issues:
Previous camera profiles identified in the Calibrate panel of the Develop module may have displayed poor results at extreme ends of the temperature and tint ranges. A new camera profile identified as Camera Raw 4.4 is now available and will be applied by default to all images without existing Camera Raw or Lightroom settings. The creation of new default profiles will also include the updated Camera Raw 4.4 profile. Images edited in Camera Raw or Lightroom with earlier profiles will retain the earlier profile value and visual appearance.

In previous grayscale conversions the Color Noise setting was disabled and this could result in an image with excessive noise when grayscale channel mixing is applied. Both the tool and effect have been enabled in Lightroom 1.4 and Camera Raw 4.4 providing the ability to reduce noise in grayscale conversions. In order to return to the prior visual appearance, Color Noise reduction can be set to zero.

Lightroom 1.4 includes corrections for the following issue:
Compatibility with legacy printer drivers on OS X 10.5 (Leopard) has been updated. I’d like to thank everyone who commented on my earlier post regarding this topic. Some valuable feedback was provided and by working directly with Apple and Epson we are able to provide a resolution through this Lightroom update.

Also note that a new version of the free DNG Converter is also available along with the Camera Raw updates.

Jeff & Mike Tape Camera Raw Video Tutorial http://photoshopnews.com/2008/01/21/jeff-mike-tape-camera-raw-video-tutorial/ http://photoshopnews.com/2008/01/21/jeff-mike-tape-camera-raw-video-tutorial/#comments Mon, 21 Jan 2008 21:52:41 +0000 Jeff Schewe http://photoshopnews.com/2008/01/21/jeff-mike-tape-camera-raw-video-tutorial/ jeff-mike.jpg

Photo by Michael Reichmann shot with his new Nikon D3 (I wasn’t sure I would show up on a Nikon capture but I did).

You may have noticed I didn’t make any posts last week. I was busy! (and 10-12 hour taping days really takes it out of ya). Michael Reichmann of The Luminous Landscape was in Chicago with his trusty video pal Christopher taping Michael and I doing our upcoming Camera Raw video tutorial.

It should be out in a month or so but what we though was going to be a relatively simple 2-3 hour tutorial seemed to grow as we shot. In addition to the usual fare of how to use Camera Raw in Bridge and Photoshop turned into quite a production. We cover a lot of ground…including Camera Raw, shooting tethered with the new 1DsMIII, Smart Objects, camera calibration (we invited Tom Fors the author of the AcrCalibrator to “teach Michel” how to do it right) and we even taped Thomas Knoll, the founder and primary author of Camera Raw answering questions about Camera Raw. So, I’m pretty sure the final video tutorial will be running a few hours longer (6+ hours is a guess). But hey, Mike and I had fun again–notice the boring and conservative shirt he’s wearing? This time it was Michael shooting snapshots and he’s going to post a few later when he gets them edited.

Oh, did I mention we taped a segment on wine?
:~)
