Adobe today announced the release of the Lightroom 5 beta for Mac and Windows. Lightroom is Adobe’s photo management and post-production software that competes directly with Apple’s Aperture. The beta is free to download, but users should be aware the its use — like all betas — could vary and you should not use it with photo libraries that you do not have backed up.
Here’s a list of the major new features, as reported on the Adobe Labs blog:
- Advanced Healing Brush – Easily remove objects and fix defects-even those with irregular shapes such as threads or lint-with a single brush stroke. Take precise control over what’s being removed as you make unwanted objects just disappear.
- Upright - Straighten tilted images with a single click. Upright analyzes images and detects skewed horizontal or vertical lines. You choose one of four correction methods, and Upright can even straighten images where the horizon is hidden.
- Radial Gradient – Lead your viewer’s eye through your images with more flexibility and control. The radial gradient tool lets you create off-center vignette effects, or multiple vignette areas within a single image.
- Offline editing with Smart Previews – Easily work with images without bringing your entire library with you. Just generate smaller stand-in files called Smart Previews. Make adjustments or metadata additions to Smart Previews and your changes will be automatically applied to the full-size originals later.
- Video slideshow sharing – Easily share your work in elegant video slideshows. Combine still images, video clips, and music in creative HD videos that can be viewed on almost any computer or device.
- Improved photo book creation – Create beautiful photo books from your images. Lightroom includes a variety of easy-to-use book templates, and now you can edit them to create a customized look. Upload your book for printing with just a few clicks.
That didn’t take long, did it? The promised beta of Windows Phone 7′s Mac-friendly companion app is now available, bringing basic media sync capability — notably with iTunes and iPhoto integration — to that shiny new Microsoft-powered phone of yours. In fact, Microsoft delivered the client so fast that it beat every single American WP7 device to market — so AT&T and T-Mobile folks, you can rest easy knowing that you’ll be Mac-compatible from day one. Notably, the so-called Windows Phone 7 Connector for Mac lacks any Zune functionality; Microsoft has never written a true Zune client for Mac, unfortunately, but at least this is a critical first step that makes these things usable for Mac owners that aren’t tied to the iPhone. Let us know how the app treats you in comments, alright?

Apple’s iWork.com document sharing and collaboration service still carries the beta tag that it has worn since it was introduced with iWork ’09 last January. (Perhaps it’s just another hobby, like Apple TV?) Still, with the iPad ready to launch in a few weeks, Apple has added a few improvements to iWork.com.
One improvement is an update to the way documents can be shared publicly. A simple toggle turns public sharing on or off as needed, and a “Show URL” button rolls down a drop-down sheet with the URL selected for easy cutting and pasting. The new public URLs don’t show comments or notes, according to Apple. The company also noted that it makes sharing documents via social networks easy, though adding buttons to “Tweet this!” or “Post to Facebook” would more likely get users to post documents to such sites.
The other improvement is that Apple has created interfaces that are optimized for iPads, iPhones, and iPod touches. Functionality on Apple’s mobile devices is quite limited, but you can access documents that you have shared via iWork.com and view them within Safai. On the iPad, documents can be edited using the new iPad versions of Pages, Numbers, or Keynote if they are installed. Both new views have interfaces optimized for touch input, but the iPad’s screen makes viewing documents much more pleasurable.
