While the arrival of Google Maps and 1Password 4 for iOS may be getting most of the spotlight on Thursday, a couple of creative Mac offerings have also been updated to add support for Apple's latest technologies.
We're still waiting for that Retina Display-enabled Adobe Photoshop update, but the company is inching a bit closer with the availability of a release candidate for Adobe Lightroom that adds this coveted feature.
It's here, and it's ready for OS X Mountain Lion and your MacBook Pro with Retina Display. Snapheal 2.0 has landed in the Mac App Store, and if you move quickly, you might even get it at a steep discount.
Initially promised as part of Adobe's $49.99 per month Creative Cloud subscription service, Lightroom 4 was MIA when the service launched in May -- an injustice that the company has rectified this week.
Adobe Systems is having a big week, shipping Creative Suite 6 on Monday and Creative Cloud expected on Friday, but in-between they’ve quietly slipped Photoshop Lightroom 4 into the Mac App Store, marking their fourth title to land on Apple’s virtual store shelves.
Every photographer needs a good tool for organizing digital photos on their computer--it’s almost more crucial than a photo editor, since not ever photo necessarily needs edits, but they all need somewhere to live, where they can be found again. Apple’s options include iPhoto (free with new Macs or $14.99 in the Mac App Store) and Aperture ($79.99). If you’re an Adobe fan, you can use a folder-browsing program like Adobe Bridge (part of Creative Suite 5) or, if you have one of the most recent versions of Photoshop Elements ($79.99), you might be using the Elements Organizer.
