  • Can you also use lightroom for jpeg-images or is it just a raw-conversion tool. I’m still not sure…

  • It treats JPG and RAW files the same. You get all the same conversion tools and it protects the originals for lossless editing. You can read my impressions of the beta here.

  • I heard it first on photodoto.com – “clone and healing features.” All my wishes have come true!

  • thx, I’m very happy with that, as I will have a free copy op 1.0 due to the fact I once bought Rawshooter Pro. I used to have a camera that could do raw. My current one doesn’t. Seems I will still be able to use lightroom. Yay!
