• Lightroom 3.2 is now available as a beta on Adobe Labs.

• For the first time ever, Photoshop World (where me and a bunch of other Lightroom pros will be teaching Lightroom) is selling 1-day passes. So if you can’t swing getting out to the full conference just come out for a day.

• Nik Software’s Viveza 2 Plug-in is now 64-bit friendly

• If you’re looking for some inspiration today check out the landscape and nature photography of Saurabh Deoras. Wow!

    Hey Matt,

    So, I installed the Lr3-2 RC on my computer and noticed that it has installed like a whole new application, as opposed to just an update. Does that make a difference?

    Meaning, should I wait until the full releases comes out to make any changes in my catalogs? I just noticed that it sets next to the Lr3 app instead of integrating with it.
    I’m very excited about the filter lock option!

      Yep, as long as it’s a release candidate it’ll install a whole new app vs. updating. I’d just use it as a test catalog so you don’t run into issues when the real 3.2 comes out.

    Dear Matt, I was wondering all day today what was going on with so many hits to my website, which otherwise is a tranquil and quiet place. Now I know you started it all 🙂

    Thank you so much for the mention. I am very honored and glad that you found my work worthy of mentioning on your blog.

    Love your tips on LR. Over the years I have learned so many things from you and LR is what I primarily use for post processing. Thank you so much for all the cool tips.

    Not you, too.

    You wouldn’t say “where me will be teaching.” Why, oh, why, would you write “where me and a bunch of other Lightroom pros will be teaching”?

    I realize that language changes over time and this construction appears to be one of those changes. But for this old fart the “me and …” construction hurts my head whenever I read it or hear it. It jars. It grates. It’s just plain painful.

    I beg of you: “where a bunch of other Lightroom pros and I will be teaching” next time.

    This is, by the way, a fan letter (he hastens to add). I’m amazed at your photographic sensibility. I marvel at your accessible, friendly, knowledgeable writing. I’m entertained –and I learn something– every time I encounter your work.

    Please, please, though: don’t do the “me and” nasty any more.

    — Chris
