First Look: Lightroom 3

Lightroom 3—released last week after a public beta—is the latest version of Adobe’s popular photo management software.

Sometimes referred to as a “digital darkroom” program, Lightroom gives photographers the tools they need to move large amounts of images from the camera to final files, including processing raw photos and organizing images. In addition to improvements like increased speed, revamped import features, and a tweaked raw processing engine, Adobe has added some completely new features to Lightroom 3.
