Over on Computer-Darkroom.com, Lightroom guru and lightroom alpha tester Ian Lyons, has written detailed review titled: Summary of What’s New in Lightroom 1.1:
Lightroom 1.0 made its public debut in mid February 2007. At the time, I along with around 40 other photographers and fellow Lightroom alpha testers (Michael Reichmann, Jeff Schewe and Seth Resnick) were on a photo shoot to Antarctica, so we missed all the fun and games of the official launch day. Anyway, time marches and Lightroom 1.1 is now with us, maybe we’ll have another party.

Micah Bowers, author of the Lightroom Flash Gallery, has posted instructions on the Bluefire Blog, showing how to add music to your Lightroom Flash Gallery:
“We’ve had several requests for an easier way to add background music to the Flash galleries without having to know how to author Flash. This could have been done in such a way that an “add music” option appeared in the application UI’s, but that would take more time than I have at the moment (as I’d need to do three variations on that for the different app’s gallerymaker implementations). So I’ve put together a quick and dirty solution (albeit requires you to edit the XML -but that is easy!).”

Author John Beardsworth has an interesting tip on adding a contextual menu item to send a Folder to Lightroom via a right click.
Here’s a handy little registry hack which adds a “Send Folder to Lightroom” choice to Windows Explorer’s right click menu. Either download and double click my registry file – read it first just to be sure – or copy this code into Notepad and save it as a file with an “reg” extension, then double click it:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
@=”Send folder to Lightroom”
@=”\”C:\\Program Files\\Adobe\\Adobe Photoshop Lightroom\\Lightroom.exe\” \”%L\”"
The full article can be found on his blog.
Update: John pointed out a slight change required for the default installation, which is corrected above.
