Yes that's right. Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3 is now available for public beta testing at Adobe Labs.
And it's very cool.
For those of you who don't know, Lightroom is literally a digital photo darkroom. Where Photoshop has many workflows - digital imaging, creative design and pre-press - Lightroom has a truly singular workflow: digital photography.
It combines many features of Bridge, Camera RAW, and digital image correction/enhancement in a very slick package. It also offers multiple output workflows: slideshow (with music, even), print (single images and packages) and web (photo galleries and direct to flickr upload).
If any of this has piqued your interest, be sure to drop by Adobe Labs for the beta, and to watch some excellent Lightroom 3 videos by Julieanne Kost
