SAN JOSE, Calif., — March 6, 2012 — Adobe Systems Incorporated (Nasdaq:ADBE) today announced the availability of Adobe® Photoshop® Lightroom® 4 software for Mac OS and Windows. Lightroom is the essential digital photography workflow solution helping amateur and professional photographers quickly import, manage, enhance and showcase their images. First released as a public beta in January 2012, the final version of Lightroom 4 is now available for US$149 for the full version and US$79 for the upgrade, providing an incredible value for photographers. Lightroom 4 introduces refined technology for superior shadow and highlight processing, ability to create photo books, additional local adjustment controls, and enhanced video support.
But that's not the only news. Did you see that price? $149 That's 1/2 the price LR 3 was… I don't know if this is temporary or a permanent price reduction (that would be amazing huh?)… I would not wait too long to find out though: Buy Lightroom 3 at Adobe.com

A new Google Plus (G+) daily photography theme.
I really love cultural photography. So I thought I would be well suited to curate one of the photography theme days that are so popular here on G+. Since there seems to be nobody else doing a culture theme, I'm jumping in. I can't wait to see the photos which the G+ community will bring to the table.

Did you ever think your photos could sing? Well, they still can't… but. They can make some pretty interesting noises with the use of a cool program called "Photosounder". The program seems to have potential in many areas which are actually practical. But I'm just going to point out this one feature which turns images into sound. If you watch this video for a while you'll start to see patterns in how it's working. It's using color, shape, relative postition and other visual features to produce a "sound fingerprint" of the image.
By manipulating an image your can create new sounds. Create an image and then start changing it in Photoshop and listen to how the "music" of your photo changes. The examples in the video below are based on fractals which of course have patterns and symmetry of a sort… I wonder what plain 'ol photographs sound like?
I don't know the practical uses of this in photography… but it seems like it could be a lot of fun to play with.
It's a both when you're browsing your RAW photos outside of Lightroom or Bridge,, yes? You are forced to attempt (and usually fail) to browse for a photo by file name. If you are not very vigilent at good naming techniques upon import (and most people are not) then you're screwed. Why? because Windows is not capable of displaying a thumbnail of your NEF file, so you just get some generic icon. Well, problem now solved. Nikon has released a codec for 64-bit versions of Windows Vista and Windows 7 which will allow you to display your RAW NEF files in your explorer browser. Hooray!
