LR 4 beta is out and, yes, Aperture users can rejoice … or pick some fun a Lightroom users like me.
You see, when I switched from AP to LR, I did so for very simple reasons: better noise reduction built-in, greater speed but most importantly better industry support including by great photographers like David duChemin.
But I did miss out on important features that are present in Aperture like geotagging, book making, localized adjustments and, yes, email sending.
I am happy to see that LR 4 will include all this plus some interesting video editing features as well as Adobe Carousel, er, Adobe Revel integration.
I just wish that it would have included auto-publishing and collections within projects, a la Aperture.
All in all, a worthy upgrade for sure.
