It is not official yet, but Adobe has secretly released the final version of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3 for both Windows and MacOS platforms. You can download the final version trial right here.
Upgrade from Lightroom 2 is just $99, while the retail version is currently selling for $299. You can also purchase it directly through the above link and get it now (via download method), without having to wait to get a packaged version in a store, which is great for those of you who cannot wait :)
I’m downloading it now and I am really excited about upgrading to Lightroom 3. I love Lightroom and I have been using it for my photography ever since Lightroom 2 was released. I have some beginner articles for Lightroom here, although it is not much (planning to write more in the future). By the way, for those who currently have Lightroom 2 – the LR3 beta did not allow to upgrade the existing LR2 database, which was a bummer. This issue is now fixed in the final release and LR3 gives the option to upgrade the database as soon as you start it for the first time!
