If you haven’t seen or tried Adobe Lightroom® you owe it to yourself to check it out. It might just change your RAW workflow forever and you might wonder how you ever lived without it. They have a free 30 day trial available so you can see if you like it (and you probably will) before you lay down you hard earned cash.
There is a great article by Stephen Shankland on what features might be added to Lightroom® in the future.
Scott Kelby at Photo Insider has put together a wish-list of feature he, and many others would like to see added to Lightroom®. If you are not familiar with Scott Kelby then check out his site, www.scottkelby.com.
