Well, it’s popular – can’t connect to download :-(
Thanks for the heads up Scott, this is great news as I have just ordered my new GPS tracker for my Nikon last week. Now with the new Lightroom I can use the Map Module to see where things were taken. 2012 is shaping up to be a huge year for photography!
Woo Hoo! Downloading it now, and I’ll install it tonight. Wish I could see the broadcasts live (have to work), but I imagine they’ll be archived on the NAPP site.
Does Matt know anything about Lightroom, though? ;-)
Yay Photobooks, sounds excellent. Know what I will be (trying to) downloading when I get home!
I can’t wait. I will be upgrading from Lightroom 2. Very exciting!!!!!
The new adjustment options on the adjustment brush are exactly what ive been waiting for, although the slow bugginess that is a beta release is not fun. I guess I’ve been spoiled with how well 3.5 runs!
Looking forward to see what the new year/new Lightroom will bring!
Any word on whether the license changes coming to Photoshop will also be applied to Lightroom?
My crystal ball is telling me that Mr. Kelby is once again globetrotting somewhere exotic this week. Play along with this week’s edition of “Where in the World is Scott?” Keep an eye out for him in your neighborhood (snowbound Canadians ned not bother) and you could win a prize! :-)
Ya think they would have deduced that by now!
I can’t upgrading from LR3!.. How can i? It say:” cannot be opened because its from an earlier version…” ” LR4 Beta does not support catalog upgrades”…
Hey Scott……been a big fan of u and your work for a long time….thought you and the fellas at PS would get a kick out of this….enjoy
What happened with your letter to Adobe about new money-grubbing pricing policy for upgrades?
Oh man, this is awesome, love the Book Module!!
The learning center is great but… Ipad. Really? No way to watch the video(s) on an iPad?
You sir are KILLING ME!! :)
I’ve purchased Lightroom since version 1 but I guess version 3.6 will be the last. I’m running XP and have NO plans to move to Windows 7 and especially VISTA because of older devices (HP laser printers, software I’ve updated online and no CD, etc. Thanks for cutting me off at the knees by not allowing XP users to take advantages of improvements in any future software.

I’m running XP and have NO plans to move to Windows 7 and especially VISTA because of older devices (HP laser printers, software I’ve updated online and no CD, etc. Thanks for cutting me off at the knees by not allowing XP users to take advantages of improvements in any future software. I hope you don’t do the same with CS6!!
There’s not enough in this version to cough up more than $49 for an upgrade. Interactivity with social media through plug-ins?? come on, build it into the program already. The interface needs some attention big time. The borders hidden by hot keys f5,6,7,8 are too fat, adjusting an image and then mousing over either right or left panes requires you to use the scroll bar instead of dynamically sensing mouse cursor scroll. I use LR 3.x because it’s the most popular, but I sure wish more could be worked into the design.
I haven’t downloaded it yet, but it looks very promising, especially the new local adjustment brush. I’m assuming the highlights are/was the recovery, and the shadows the old “fill light?”
Also… something that might be nice in the final release (maybe it has this already, being I haven’t downloaded it yet…;) – when I’m editing with the adjustment brush in LR3, after I’ve edited, it would have been nice to still be able have a way to click on the size, flow, density(maybe even feather) of the brush, and have it automatically adjust to what you’ve painted on the image (say I look at the picture, and decide the density/flow was a bit too much, and want to tone down what I’ve already edited…).. Would be great if there was a buttom to change the elements of the brush itself on what you’ve already painted on (being that you can change the color/sharpness, contrast, ect, of what you’ve already painted, size, flow, density, feather would be nice to add in there, too, and hopefully not too much to ask for…;)
No windows xp support? Disapointing. The new basic panel is looking a lot like Apeture.
Copied from this link: http://www.famousbloggers.net/news/how-many-people-still-using-windows-xp
With Microsoft gearing up this year for Windows 8, I thought I would survey the stats on desktop OS share, and to no surprise, XP is still the leader. According to Forrester in March 2011, 60% of the corporate desktops were running XP. The mix is somewhat less on the consumer side: According to NetMarketShare.com, XP has a 46% share as of December 2011. A compilation of other stats on Wikipedia shows between 26-45%, depending on who is counting. Certainly, there is still a lot of XP out in the world, and probably in your home and at your workplace.
So is 2012 going to be the year that we finally tip the balance and have something more recent that a 12 year old OS running on our Windows PCs? Probably not. Even though it has been years since you could actually purchase a copy of XP in any retail store, or buy it pre-installed on a new computer, XP continues to thrive.
Here is the trend from NetMarketShare over 2011:
Now that Lightroom 4 has been released, when will Scott’s book be released?
How do I import my catalog from Lightroom 3 to Lightroom 4? And also the plug-in extras?
