  1. I am working on a website about the Badlands in central Oregon and the geotagging feature in the new maps module. Now I can stay in Lightroom and precisely match images to locations on a map; this is key to my image library and the website it will feed.

    I appreciate Lightroom’s use of RAM instead of heavy processor dependence, so I can work at a good clip.

    Video publishing and Blurb integration are two more tools that I’ll use directly with this Badlands site.

    So thanks Adobe, you’re making my work, and like easier, and more fun.

  2. Looks good, thanks for sharing.

    But what I am really waiting for is that i can use Lightroom for ALL family members. With appropriate rights: e.g. My kids can search and look at photos, export them etc. but can not change or delete them. Also it should be accessible from different computers in the network, while I have the library on my NAS.

    Network sharing of the actual photo collection with per-machine views, just one more voice for this kind of support.

    I don’t see any features in version 4 that are compelling reasons for me to upgrade, and you want another $80, tag me as “unimpressed.”

  4. Please tell me the differences and similarities in the basic panels of LR3 and LR4. I read where recovery, fill light, blacks are renamed in LR4 yet do the same thing. I’m confused.

    • Actually Debbie they’re not just “renamed” or “do the same thing”… The controls in Camera Raw 7 (part of Lightroom 4) are rebuilt and significantly improved so you can do much better with your images… Especially with photos that have a wide range of light and dark (think sunsets for example), you can really bring out all the detail in the image without blowing anything out.

      If you watch the video within the article above (from about the 4 minute mark), you’ll learn more about this… Also check out this one below for great before-and-after results. Thanks for your question!
