Adobe has announced the Lightroom 3.2 and Camera Raw 6.2 Release Candidates, available for immediate download on Adobe Labs.
The updates extend raw file support to 12 new camera models, improve on several of the lens correction profiles introduced as part of the Lightroom 3 and Camera Raw 6.1 releases, and add over 50 new lens profiles to help photographers automatically correct for undesirable distortion and aberration effects. In addition, the Lightroom 3.2 Release Candidate now allows Lightroom 3 customers the ability to publish their photos directly to Facebook from within the application, and addresses issues reported by customers on the Lightroom 3.0 release.
Lightroom is a digital photography workflow solution, helping serious amateur and professional photographers import, manage, enhance and showcase all their images from one application. The Photoshop Camera Raw plug-in provides access within Photoshop to the raw image formats produced by many leading digital cameras.
