Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4


The Lightroom team is proud to introduce the fourth major version of the product designed for and by photographers. It was 6 years ago today when we introduced the very first public beta of Lightroom at MacWorld on January 9, 2006. (Yes, it was Mac only, smaller in footprint than most raw files and didn’t have a crop tool!) Since 2006 we’ve been hard at work improving an application that’s intended to be as easy to use as it is powerful. This release builds on the fundamental performance architecture and image quality improvements in Lightroom 3 to provide a truly complete workflow solution. I kept hearing from customers that they love Lightroom but needed to leave the Lightroom to complete X, Y or Z. Lightroom 4 tackles those issues with improvements to image organization, adjustment tools and comprehensive publishing options.

Hello world!


, , , ,

Hi there.

In this first post I’d like to briefly summarize what it is all about here. In addition to self-promotion (and bragging), our goal is to share useful information about the events related to architecture and design. Although this does not exclude the possibility of posting about things and events that have nothing to do with these, we hope you will learn something new and useful with each and every single post.

Let’s make the first post a present for you – the company DAZ 3D offers a free download package of three programs: Daz Studio Pro 4, Brice 7 Pro and Hexagon 2.5.


“The DAZ 3D Software FREE promotion with three award-winning 3D software products now available for the first time ever for free, this 3D software suite has a combined retail value of over $ 800!”
