Lightroom 2.7 – Windows / Mac

ACR 5.7 – Windows / Mac

Highlights from release notes:

* Camera Raw 5.7 includes an updated demosaic algorithm designed to provide compatibility with settings applied in Lightroom 3 beta 2.

* Lightroom 2.7 also includes the same updated demosaic algorithm. The updated demosaic algorithm will appear as a subtle shift in noise characteristics at default values.

* By default Camera Raw will display the image adjustments exactly as performed in the Lightroom 3 beta 2 develop module.  However, at this time Camera Raw 5.7 is unable to support further adjustments to the following settings or tools:
 – Highlight Priority and Color Priority post-crop vignette
 – Enhanced Luminance and Color Noise Reduction
 – Grain effects
 – Process Version


Known issues:
* Burning exported images to disc is not available for the Lightroom 64-bit Windows application.
* Upgrading a Lightroom 1 catalog during a catalog import can create multiple temporary copies of the catalog while upgrading

* Lightroom may not automatically launch an import dialog when a memory card is attached to a Windows Vista computer. Please select the Import button in the Library and select the attached card reader to begin the import.

Vista: C:/Users/{your_username}/AppData/Roaming/Adobe/Lightroom/Modules/

Bugs fixed:
