Adobe has provided the 2nd public Beta of Photoshop Lightroom 3 application for immediate download from its Adobe Labs site. Lightroom 3 will be based around a new processing engine and the second iteration adds luminance noise reduction to the color noise reduction options that appeared in the initial beta. The latest beta also supports tethered shooting for a number of Nikon and Canon DSLRs, enables importing and management of video files and improves overall functioning of the software.
I really have enjoyed working with the initial Beta release and just downloaded version 2. The full Beta 2 release can be downloaded directly from the Adobe Labs site and includes the latest press release and version information.
