Adobe Lightroom 5 now available via Creative Cloud, stand-alone


Adobe Monday released Photoshop Lightroom 5. Lightroom is geared towards digital photography. The update features Advanced Healing Brush, Upright, Radial Filter, Smart Previews, improved photo book creation, and slideshows that mix video and still images. Lightwave 5 was available as a beta earlier this year. Adobe said it has made "more than 400 tweaks" from that early release.

Version 5 is available as a part of the Creative Cloud licensing suite and also as a stand-alone application. Pricing is $149 or $79 for current users.
