Adobe Lightroom 5.4 en ACR 8.4 beschikbaar

Julian 2772
Adobe heeft Lightroom 5.4 en Adobe Camera Raw 8.4 beschikbaar gesteld. De updates brengen ondersteuning voor diverse nieuwe camera's. Ook bevatten de updates kleurprofielen voor de Fujifilm X-camera's.

Eerder bracht Adobe al een release candidate uit van ACR 8.4. Lightroom-gebruikers konden nog niet gebruikmaken van de betaversie van de update. Nu zijn zowel de definitieve versies van Lightroom 5.4 als Adobe Camera Raw 8.4 beschikbaar. Maak je gebruik van de Adobe Creative Cloud, dan krijg je de updates vanzelf binnen.

Naast ondersteuning voor raw-bestanden uit tal van nieuwe camera's geven de updates je de mogelijkheid om raw-bestanden uit Fujifilm X-camera's te voorzien van dezelfde kleurprofielen die je ook in de camera vindt: Provia/Standard, Velvia/Vivid, Astia/Soft en Monochrome.

Ook heeft Adobe diverse correctieprofielen voor objectieven toegevoegd in de updates. Een volledig overzicht van wat nieuw is in ACR 8.4 en Lightroom 5.4 vind je hier.

Adobe DNG Converter 8.4

Gebruik je een oude Photoshop- of Lightroom-versie en wil je raw-bestanden uit een nieuwe camera bewerken, dan kun je de Adobe DNG Converter downloaden (Voor Windows en Mac). Met de nieuwste versie 8.4 kun je foto's van de camera's die zijn toegevoegd in ACR 8.4 en Lightroom 5.4 omzetten naar DNG-formaat, dat je in alle versies van de Adobe-software kunt openen.

Naast dat zijn er in deze versie ook verbeteringen opgenomen buiten alleen camera profielen (alleen voor CC gebruikers dan).

Features:

Updates to the Preview Controls. The main idea is a simple “Before/After” set of image settings. Details:

The Preview checkbox has been replaced by three buttons in the bottom-right of the ACR main dialog. From left to right, they are:
Mode: Click this button to cycle through left/right and top/bottom side-by-side and split-view modes. Click-and-hold this button to bring up a popup menu for directly choosing Preview modes and accessing the Preview Preferences. Keyboard shortcut: Press Q to cycle through the Preview modes.
Swap: Click this button to swap Before/After settings. Keyboard shortcut: Press P to swap Before/After settings for the primary selected image only; press Shift-P to swap Before/After settings for all selected images.
Copy: Click this button to copy the After settings to the Before settings. This is useful for establishing a temporary “checkpoint” for your image editing session. Keyboard shortcut: Press Option-P to copy After settings to the Before settings for the primary selected image only. Press Shift-Option-P to copy After settings to the Before settings for all selected images.
The After preview image always reflects the current slider and tool settings (White Balance, Exposure, etc.).
The standard single-image view always shows the After state.
In the side-by-side and split-view modes, the Before settings are always shown on the left or top, and the After settings are always shown on the right or bottom.
The Preview Preferences dialog supports customizing the Preview modes used for cycling and some drawing options.
When using any tool other than Zoom and Pan (hand) in a side-by-side or split-view, changes are only allowed on the After view. Using the Crop tool will put you back into the standard single-image mode.
Zooming and panning on one view will automatically zoom and pan the other.
Pet Eye correction: The Red Eye tool can now correct bright pupils in animals. Details:

Select ‘Pet Eye’ from the new drop down menu in the Red Eye tool to fix pet eyes.
Add catchlights to Pet Eye corrections using the ‘Add Catchlight’ checkbox (enabled by default).
Reposition catchlights to create a more natural look by dragging within the overlay that surrounds the catchlight.
Changes to Local Corrections:

Added a mechanism to quickly reset all local correction sliders (Temperature, Exposure, etc.) to zero: right-click on a local adjustment pin and choose “Reset Local Correction Settings” from the context menu. Another way is to click on a local adjustment pin, and then choose “Reset Local Correction Settings” from the flyout menu.
Added “Fill Image” to context menu for Radial Filter. Right-click on a radial filter adjustment pin and choose “Fill Image” from the context menu to resize the radial filter to cover the image area. (Shortcut: double-click inside the ellipse overlay for a radial filter adjustment to accomplish the same task.)
Added “Check All” and “Check None” buttons to Synchronize, New Preset, Save Settings, and Copy/Paste (Bridge) dialog boxes. These are shortcuts for checking all/none of the check boxes.
Added keyboard shortcut: When using the Crop Tool or Straighten Tool, press the X key to flip the crop aspect ratio (landscape to portrait, portrait to landscape).
Added explanatory note to Lens Correction “Profile” panel to indicate when built-in (metadata-based) lens profiles are automatically applied to the image.
Added context menu to Histogram pane. The context menu can be used to enable Lab color readouts, even when the Workflow Options are set to another color space (such as Adobe RGB). The context menu and also be used to toggle the shadow, highlight, and gamut clipping warnings.
