Today Adobe Labs released Adobe Lightroom 4 Beta. This release boasts some really amazing new features that will only make your workflow better, and more efficient.
As with any Beta release, the software is still being tested, so please don’t use this Beta to replace your current catalog. Be sure to make a duplicate of the files or folders before you import your photos to the Beta so that your originals will remain intact.
This Beta will expire when the full version of Lightroom 4 is released, so be prepared to either upgrade or buy Lightroom 4 and know that the Beta will expire.
