Podcast 319 : Lightroom 4 Public Beta New Feature Overview (Video)

Just Released! My New C&V eBook: Making The Print!

Last week, Adobe released the Public Beta version of Lightroom 4, the lastest version of the software that many of us use and love. I’ve not gone crazy with LR4 yet, but I’ve had a bit of a play with it, so figured I’d do a video this week to show you some of the major new features that I’ve excited about, such as Soft Proofing, Maps, Books and some Video handling enhancements. You can actually edit how the video looks using Develop presets too, but it seems a bit fiddly at the moment. I’m hoping that Adobe make it possible to just make Develop module changes directly to video rather than relying on creating presets for this.

If you want to download Lightroom 4 Beta yourself, you can grab that here:

And here’s a link to Jeffrey Friedl’s “GPS-Support” Geoencoding Plugin for Lightroom too:

Here’s the video. Don’t forget to hit the full-screen button Full-Screen Button in the video window, or click on the Vimeo link and go full-screen from there.

Note that there is an iPod/iPhone version of this video in iTunes, but when watching on a computer, the video above is better.

    […] In my most recent Continuing Education post I told you how much of a fan I was of the Martin Bailey Photography podcast. This weeks episode (#319) is a video podcast where Martin goes over the new features in the Lightroom 4 beta. This is probably one of the most comprehensive looks at the Lightroom 4 beta that I have seen and well worth your time if you are at all interested in the new features of Lightroom 4. You can find even more info on his blog at http://www.blog.MartainBaileyPhotography.com or in his show post here. […]

    Love the overview. Gives a real good taste for what’s in the new Lightroom. So thanks for the overview Martin. Intrigued to know what the application launcher is you used to launch Lightroom.

      Thanks for watching Mark.

      The program launcher comes with the Wacom Intuos4 Tablet, and is customizable depending on what program you have open. The menu you saw was my default (no program open) menu, that I use for quick access to some of my key programs.

      Hope that helps!

      Martin.
