Lightroom Product Manager, Tom Hogarty has announced the availabilty of Lightroom 3 Beta over at Lightroom Journal. In a similar fashion to Lightroom 1 and 2, Adobe are providing a public preview of the application. In this case it’s much more like the original Beta preview, in that it’s less polished. Hence Adobe warn that it is not to be used as a production tool, but for testing and commenting only.
New features include: Improved Import, Watermarking, better Noise Reduction, Slideshow Video Export, Grain amongst others. Discussion can be had on the Adobe Labs Forum and more information and the download can be had from Adobe Labs.
