Adobe today released final versions of Photoshop Camera Raw 5.5, Photoshop Lightroom 2.5 and DNG Converter 5.5, available immediately for download at www.adobe.com/downloads/updates. The updates add raw file support for five new popular camera models, including the Nikon D300s, Nikon D3000, Olympus E-P1, Panasonic DMC-FZ35 and Panasonic DMC-GF1.
In addition, Camera Raw 5.5 also includes a correction to the demosaic algorithms in the raw conversion process for Bayer sensor cameras with unequal green response. Adobe would like to thank the community for providing feedback on the Camera Raw 5.5 Release Candidate originally posted on Adobe Labs on August 19.
Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2 software is essential for today's digital photography workflow, allowing photographers to quickly import, process, manage and showcase images. The Photoshop Camera Raw plug-in helps photographers achieve greater artistic control and flexibility with their images by providing fast and easy access within Photoshop to the raw image formats produced by many leading professional and midrange digital cameras. Adobe Photoshop Camera Raw supports the same functionality for TIFF and JPEG files.
