Last night Adobe announced the availability of the public beta version of Lightroom 3.
This upgrade will feature a number of significant improvements to Lightrooms’ performance and functionality. For example, the Import process has been completely revamped to make it easier to get your files into Lightroom. Publish Collections features have been added to make it easier to share your work with others. The Develop module has seen some changes with the addition of more noise and grain tools as well as a new Effects panel. And this is all just the beginning!
