Version 4.1 of Lightroom has been released by Adobe today, with the long-awaited Fuji X-Pro 1 RAW support!  Olympus OM-D RAW support is also included, but we knew that was coming from RC versions.  The inclusion of the X-Pro 1 seemingly at the last minute is a nice surprise!  Although the X-Pro 1 can produce gorgeous JPEGs all by itself, it will be welcome from some people wanting that little bit more control.  I’ll be putting it to the test later on!

Interestingly, support has also been added for the Sigma 19 and 30mm lenses, for both M43 and NEX.

Alongside additional camera support, the new version includes..

  • The ability to process HDR TIFF files.  (16, 24 or 32-bit TIFF files)  This can be useful if you have merged multiple exposures into a single 32-bit image using Photoshop’s HDR Pro.  Using the new basic panel controls can be a very effective and straightforward method of achieving an overall balance across the tonal range.
  • Additional Color Fringing corrections to help address chromatic aberration.  Click here to learn more
  • Save photobooks created in the Book Module as JPEG files
  • Publishing photos to Adobe Revel is now accessible via a Publish plugin
