MacVoices #17205: Jeff Carlson Clarifies The Confusing Adobe Lightroom Situation

Jeff Carlson has been watching the developments from Adobe MAX, with a special interesting in the development and evolution of Lightroom, and the angst that followed some of the announcements. He details the capabilities of the various flavors of Lightroom, explains why you don’t need to be worried about the “classic” moniker attributed to one of those flavors, and compares it to some of the alternatives that are on the market. Jeff talks about why Lightroom has developed into something of a standard, and teases us with an upcoming project that fits right in with the controversy.
