I finally downloaded and installed the much anticipated Windows Beta of Adobe Lightroom. I've only been playing with it for a while, but the first word that comes to mind is "slick." Overall the interface has a very polished look to it and I am enjoying some of the features such as one-touch zoom and drag and drop keywords. I loved the fact that I didn't have to download any updates in order for the software to recognize my Fuji S9000 RAW files.
I plan to write a more detailed overview of this beta quite soon, but for now I encourage all you digital shooters to take a few minutes and give the beta a test run. Yes, there are flaws, but it's not ready for shipping yet either, and Adobe wants your feedback.
