lightroom4_iconAdobe has released the first beta of Lightroom 5 to the public today.  This is a preview release to show off features of the new version.  This will install alongside your current Lightroom installation if you have Lightroom.

Lightroom 5 new features:

  • Advanced Healing Brush: Enhancements to the Spot Removal tool allow you to heal or clone using brush strokes. A new “Visualize Spots” tool highlights sensor dust spots for easy removal.
  • Radial Filter: Apply any of Lightroom’s local adjustment attributes to a circular mask. The area of the mask can be resized, feathered or even inverted to give you maximum control over the focus of your images.
  • Upright: Automatically level horizons, straight buildings, and correct other askew lines.
  • Smart Preview: Lightroom allows you to edit offline images by storing a smaller version of the original image, called a smart preview. Edits made to the Smart Preview will automatically apply to the original once reconnected to Lightroom.

You can download the PC and Mac versions here.

Here is a preview video of the new healing brush.
