Camera Raw 4.5 RC now on Labs

Lightroom/Camera Raw PM Tom Hogarty has announced that the Camera Raw 4.5 and DNG Converter Release Candidates (RC) are now available on Adobe Labs.  He writes,


The ‘release candidate’ label indicates that the plug-in is well tested but would benefit from additional community testing before it is distributed automatically to all of our customers. The Camera Raw team would like the community to help verify the quality of the plug-in through normal usage as this will ensure that the plug-in is tested on a diversity of hardware and software configurations not available internally at Adobe.

This release includes new camera support for the Olympus E 420 and E 520 camera models.

Please provide feedback on your experience with the Camera Raw 4.5 plug-in and the DNG Converter on the Camera Raw User to User forum.  Lightroom customers who would like to use the new support provided for the Olympus cameras can download the DNG Converter release candidate and convert your raw files to DNG before importing them into Lightroom 1.4.1.

  1. “Have you seen the discussions going on over at Scott Kelby’s site – The guest blog yesterday and todays post are surely a must read for your team.” Kelby’s website shows the problems with trying to be ‘democratic’ about development. No offense intended, but most of the suggestions there are about making kindergarten-level adjustments take 1 second instead of 5.
    If the PS coders are up for a real challenge (and I realise it’ll be tough), they’ll look into editable mask adjustments. The work on adjustment layers and smart-filters on image layers has been great, but it’s left us wanting to be able to do the same thing with our masks. Quality masking is the one thing that unites all professional Photoshop usage, from photographers through graphic design to pure original illustrative work.
