Later today, Friday 9th November, you will be able to download a public beta of Naked light, a new program that looks rather interesting in that it appears it will offer quite a few of the non-destructive features that people have been asking for in Lightroom. There is no information on the site to say who is behind the program’s development, however we do know that it will only run on Apple’s Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard. But not only are the requirements Apple only, the site’s graphics, the interface design, the tightly controlled pre-release marketing, even the countdown time clock. Everything here does look very ‘Apple’…
From the Naked light website:
Public beta arriving Friday, November 9th, 2007.
The emperor has new clothes. Introducing Naked light. Non-destructive image editing. Node-based compositing. Live filters. High-end tools. And infinite resolution. It’s image editing, re-invented. Take the tour.

PixelGenius members will be at next week’s PhotoPlus Expo, check out what’s happening and what we’ll be doing.
We all get in early because we’ll be having a PixelGenius meeting (it’s always tough to figure out how to hook up with Martin over in London–although Seth was over there this week for a visit and workshop). Starting on Thursday, October 18th, we’ll be invading the expo and talking up a storm.

In his seemingly never ending quest to create new Web Galleries for Lightroom, Matthew Campagna of The Turning Gate has done it again. This new template combines Alessandro Fulciniti’s Nifty Corners Cube script with Slimbox to create a very modern looking gallery. You can download the gallery from The Turning Gate, along with many others created by Matthew.

Matt Kloskowski has posted an excellent video on using the new Catalog feature in Lightroom 1.1. The video covers exporting a Catalog on your laptop and importing this Catalog into your desktop catalog. He also shows how changes to images already in the Catalog are handled in the import process. The final part of the video covers creating new Catalogs and changing between existing Catalogs. For those interested in syncing between different machines and/or working with multiple Catalogs, this video is a good introduction to those tasks.

Scott Kelby today anounced a Lightroom 1.1 update kit for The Lightroom Book for Digital Photographers.
Yippie! It’s up!!! (I guess it actually went up yesterday, but I didn’t get the exact URL for the download until this morning. Sorry ’bout that).
Remember: this update was created exclusively for people who actually own my book “The Lightroom Book for Digital Photographers” and I created this 1.1 Update Kit as an added benefit for those specific people (whom I dearly love, by the way).

My favorite thing about the release of Lightroom 1.1? We’re going to press this week with Mikkel’s beautiful book, Photoshop Lightroom Adventure. And we’re doing so knowing that it will be the most up-to-date Lightroom book out there. Over the past few months, Mikkel has been painstakingly updating the manuscript for the changes anticipated in version 1.1, a monumental task. Not only did he have to diligently monitor and document all the great new features that were being added for LR 1.1, but he had to reshoot most of the nearly one thousand images in the book to reflect the new interface.

Ian Lyons, from Computer-Darkroom, has posted an article on locating missing files inside Lightroom.
Question – My thumbnails have a ? symbol on the top right corner – what does this mean and how do I remove it?
Short Answer – The ? symbol is used to identify a file that Adobe Lightroom can no longer access; probably because it has been moved using one of the Operating System tools such as drag/drop or possibly the Move command. Unfortunately, Adobe Lightroom currently has no way of tracking such changes, so the ? symbol is displayed to warn the user that the file or folder containing the file can no longer be accessed.
Long Answer – Locating Missing Files and Folders
Even though Lightroom now uses the Folder paradigm rather than Shoots (as was the case during the public beta), it doesn’t display the full disk/folder hierarchy in the tree form that most users would be familiar with. This means that moving folders from disk to disk or even to a section of the hard disk not shown on the Lightroom Folders panel very often needs to be done using OS level tools such as Drag/Drop or even the Move command. The problem with this approach is that Lightroom can easily lose track of your files, and this results in the ? symbol being displayed.
