Great news for those of us that use Lightroom or Photoshop – Adobe has just released the final versions of Lightroom 4.2 and Camera RAW 7.2 that add support to a bunch of new cameras, including the Nikon D600 (preliminary suppport). A bunch of Lightroom bugs have been fixed and tethered support has been added to cameras like Nikon D4, D800, D800E, Canon 5D Mark III and 1D X. Many new lens profiles have also been added, including the Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8 that we recently reviewed. This is primarily a bugfix and camera support release, which means that the final version of Lightroom 4.2 does not contain any new features compared to the last release candidate.
Great news for those of us that use Lightroom or Photoshop – Adobe has just released the final versions of Lightroom 4.1 and Camera RAW 7.1 that finally add Fuji X-Pro1 support! It took a long time for the X-Pro1 support to become available and I am happy that I can now go back and replace all JPEG images from my Lightroom catalog with RAW files. I am also planning to update my Fuji X-Pro1 Review with some RAW samples sometime this week.
At times we have photographs that are not properly exposed throughout the image. Regardless how smart and sophisticated camera systems have become lately, there seem to always be a way for them to get tricked into metering incorrectly. Or it could just be a simple mistake by a photographer. Either way, there will be photographs that you do not want to discard because of this, especially if there are very simple ways to fix the problem. Today I am going to show you how to fix a partly underexposed image in Photoshop using the Gradient Tool.
Today, Adobe has announced its new CS6 software package for both Mac and Windows users, which includes new versions of Photoshop, Premiere Pro, After Effects and more – Adobe has updated every piece of software found in the Creative Suite family.

Adobe has just officially released its Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4 photo management software. This was a rather quick release/update, since the beta version of Lightroom 4 had only been available for a few months. With the announcement of Lightroom 4 come very important and exciting news – Adobe decided to permanently lower the price of the Lightroom product line by half, from $299 to $149! That’s right, if you have never owned Lightroom before, now you can buy it brand spanking new for $149. The upgrade price also got halved. If you already own LR3, then you pay $79 for an upgrade. Now the recent price decrease of Lightroom 3 to $69 makes sense – if you add the $79 upgrade fee, it totals $148, which is what Adobe wants to charge for Lightroom 4.
In this article, I will show you how you can reduce the effect of moiré in Lightroom. With the release of high-resolution cameras without low-pass filters, moire can be rather problematic to deal with, creating additional headaches when photographing repeating patterns and textures.
