Lightroom 5 Beta

LR5betaIt seems the beta of Lightroom v5 is now available to download and play with. Being beta software I certainly wouldn’t recommend you using it for your main post production processes but instead you might like to look at some of the new features using copies of your images.

Three of the new features being showcased so far include:

  1. Improved healing options including painting heal/clone areas rather than just spot healing/cloning
  2. A new radial filter (think graduated filter but circular or elliptical)
  3. Some clever tools to level your images and correct converging or diverging verticals

You can find out more and watch videos of the three features above being demonstrated over at the Photoshop.com blog.
