Adobe has posted a beta release of the next version of its popular photo-management and editing software Lightroom.
Adobe made the announcement via a blog post and also listed the important new features in Lightroom 5. These are:
Advanced Healing Brush – Enhancements to the Spot Removal tool allow you to heal or clone using brush strokes. A new “Visualize Spots” tool highlights sensor dust spots for easy removal.
Radial Filter – Apply any of Lightroom’s local adjustment attributes to a circular mask. The area of the mask can be resized, feathered or even inverted to give you maximum control over the focus of your images.
Upright – Automatically level horizons, straighten buildings, and correct other askew lines.
Smart Preview – Lightroom allows you to edit offline images by storing a smaller version of the original image, called a smart preview. Edits made to the smart preview will automatically apply to the original once reconnected to Lightroom.
