Lightroom 2.0 Beta

As some of you might know, Adobe is sharing a pre-release version of Lightroom 2.0 with the world.  You can find out more about it at the Adobe Labs website. I've installed it and given it a whirl, but most of the coolest of the new features require Photoshop CS3, which I don't yet have.

One feature that's totally worth the price of admission though is the ability to specify a vignette for a photo that's already been cropped.   Yay!   I crop most pictures after the fact, so this went on my wishlist of features as soon as I saw the regular vignette tool.  I've been waiting for this for a long time.

Lightroom Beta Invitations

There's some sort of limitation on how long the Beta will run for you unless you have a Lightroom 1.x serial number or are "invited" by someone with a Lightroom 1.x serial number.  Let me know if you're interested in getting an invitation for the Beta of 2.0.  I'm a big fan of Lightroom and I love to spread the word...
