My father used to say “know when you have been beaten to the punch”- and DPReview
with Amadou Diallo’s update on Adobe’s Lightroom 4 has certainly done that. Note this is an update review so users are expected to be familiar with Lightroom 2 or 3 and the program’s role as a single image, non-destructive photo editor and image archiving program. Lightroom’s rivals are principally Apple’s Aperture and Corel’s new AfterShot Pro. If you are looking to do multimage layering and photocompositions, then look to Adobe Photoshop or Xara Desgner Pro.
Meanwhile, DPReview has one of the best looks at what is new [and there is much] in Lightroom 4 including its new, lower $150 price.
