In a post on the Lightroom Journal Tom Hogarty, Lightroom Product Manager has posted download URLs for the Mac and Win versions of Lightroom 1.3.1. In addition to resolving the issues relating to compressed NEF files, Lightroom 1.3.1 addresses the following issues:
- The Lightroom 1.3 Print Module could previously cause the application to crash on either OS X 10.5 or 10.5.1 during template usage.
- On Mac OS X 10.5 or 10.5.1, the import process from a card reader or other device into Lightroom could fail to import all or a portion of the selected images.
- A decrease in Develop slider responsiveness introduced in Lightroom 1.3 has been corrected.
- The Lightroom 1.3 Develop module could cause the application to crash if adjustments were made in quick succession.
- Compressed raw files from the Nikon D100 were read incorrectly in Lightroom 1.3.
- A possible artifact in raw file support for the Olympus E-3 has been corrected.
- The Lightroom FTP Plug-in provided as sample code with the Export SDK did not function properly if the password was not saved with the selected FTP preset.
- Editing or creating a new FTP preset immediately prior to using the FTP plug-in provided as sample code with the Export SDK would cause the FTP process to fail.
- Using the Export as Previous option did not work with the FTP plug-in provided as sample code with the Export SDK.

Adobe Labs has finally posted the Pixmantec RawShooter Migration Tool to help users of Pixmantec RawShooter Premium or Pixmantec RawShooter Essentials achieve “visually similar” settings in Lightroom and Camera Raw 4.x. Given that the controls in each application are not identical, the results of these conversions will not provide visually identical images.

The Camera Calibration panel in Lightroom can be used (with a little help from Photoshop) to calibrate your digital captures to get the most accurate color. But that’s not all. If you play around with the sliders you will find that you can also use the Camera Calibration panel to do the very opposite of what it is meant for and create some unusual coloring effects.

Photoshop Soup2Nuts is going to Boston to be a part of Photoshop World to show off the new baby–Lightroom.
If you are already going to Photoshop World in Boston (hope you already registered as Photoshop World is now sold out) and you are interested in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom you owe it to yourself to attend the Conference Pre-con event, Photoshop Soup2Nuts with Thomas Knoll, Mark Hamburg and George Jardine and others. Proceeds of Soup2Nuts 2007 will honor the memory of Bruce Fraser.

Last week, Adobe hosted a “virtual” launch party for Adobe Photoshop Lightroom. I was invited to attend in person at Adobe’s Minnesota offices in Shoreview, MN. As you can see, the weather was very, uh, Minnesotan. Listed in the story are Lightroom Resource URLs as well as links to movies of the Lightroom “Virtual” Launch Party.

On January 9th last year, just after Lightroom beta 1 was released, Jeff Schewe posted a story on Photoshop News about the development of Shadowland and Lightroom. Now that Lightroom 1.0 has been officially announced, we thought it would be of interest to new visitors to this site to learn a little more about the background to the Lightroom program up until Beta 1.
Jeff Schewe originally wrote: ‘The development of Adobe Lightroom, code named Shadowland, was not something Adobe started after Apple announced Aperture. The Shadowland project has been going on for years.
How do I know that Adobe has been working on Shadowland for so long?
Because that’s how long I’ve been working on it.’
