In software on December 13, 2010 at 12:03 pm

In case you haven’t already updated, be sure to go to Help>Check for Updates within Lightroom and Bridge or Photoshop to download and install these free updates.   I haven’t kicked the tires sufficiently yet, but I am excited about the Lightroom 3.3 update because I have experienced agonizing performance issues with certain aspects of 3.2, particularly with the spot removal tool.

    • Canon PowerShot G12
      Canon PowerShot S95
      Nikon D7000

      Olympus E-5
      Panasonic DMC-GF2
      Panasonic DMC-GH2
      Pentax K-5

  • Adds additional lens correction profiles
  • Fixes the following bugs (hooray!):
    • Edit in PS CS4 from LR 3.2 did not give option to render to TIFF/PSD
    • Process Version defaulted to PV 2003 when Lightroom’s installed Develop Presets are applied on Import
    • All Auto-ISO values were not properly handled for the Nikon D3s
    • An error could be generated when sorting by “User Order” in Collections
    • There was an incorrect Profile Name tag for Canon 18-55 and 17-40 lens profiles
    • Facebook album selection only displayed up to 25 albums
    • Lightroom 3 could fail to launch Photoshop CS5 if Photoshop CS4 was uninstalled after the Photoshop CS5 installation
    • Numerous cloning or healing spots could have caused Lightroom to become unresponsive
    • Lightroom could have crashed when the metadata filter is selected and the grid is displaying all images in the catalog
    • Lightroom 3.2 could have failed to import all of the images from an iPhone 4
    • Some Sigma X3F raw files were rendering incorrectly
    • Choosing the “Make a second copy to” option on import would result in incorrect folder structure for the second copy
    • Resetting the crop angle by double-clicking the Angle slider removed a custom aspect ratio
    • A tooltip for the Japanese language version of Lightroom 3 displayed the wrong keyboard shortcut for “Flag as Pick”
    • Paste Settings did not apply to all images in the Develop module Filmstrip
    • Smart collections in Lightroom 3 did not use the same definition of “All Searchable Metadata” previously available in Lightroom 2
    • Text watermarks or portions of text watermarks could have failed to be applied to images on export
    • SmugMug publish collection dialog included a mixture of English text when using a language setting other than English
    • Lightroom would not import files from the Panasonic LX5 that were shot with the iZoom Function set to above 90mm
    • Choosing the Limit File Size option in the export dialog could have stripped certain EXIF fields from the exported file
    • The Targeted Adjustment Tool may have performed slowly in the Lightroom 3.3 release candidate
    • A single image published to multiple collections for a single publish service did not display comments properly
    • Updating an existing Develop preset with all settings could have failed under certain conditions
    • The watermark drop shadow settings behaved differently in Lightroom 3.2 when compared to Lightroom 3.0. They have been returned to the Lightroom 3.0 behavior.
    • The YYYYMMDD file renaming option was not available when the Lightroom language setting was set to Dutch
    • An existing Smart Collection updated to filter for all photos with “Ratings is Zero” would show all images in the catalog
    • Publishing an empty category to SmugMug would cause an error
    • JPEG exports in the Lightroom 3.3 Release Candidate were significantly slower than the same export process in Lightroom 3.2.
    • A graphical Identity Plate included in output was not correctly color managed
    • Deleting all images in a Flickr photoset could have caused Lightroom to return an error message
    • Changing the sort order to “User Order” while in Survey View on the Mac may have caused an error to appear

    • RGB values were not displaying properly in the white balance tool
    • The Smart Collection criteria “Folder starts with” was not working properly
    • The navigator panel in the Develop module would incorrectly display threshold information when holding down the alt or option key and applying adjustments
    • Applying a flag, star or label setting to an image via the toolbar in the Develop module while in auto-advance mode would result in an incorrect setting display for the subsequent image
    • The application of color noise reduction at low color temperatures (e.g., tungsten or candlelight) could have provided results below our quality standards
  • Known issues in Lightroom 3.3:
    • A Japanese language file name is not properly preserved when uploading images to SmugMug
    • Raw images shot with the Nikon D7000 in Multi Exposure Mode have a strong magenta color cast. The cast can be partially corrected by setting the white balance using the eye dropper tool. The issue will be corrected in a future update.
