Today I’m playing with the Lightroom 5 beta, which has a radial filter that I’m using for vignettes. Lightroom 4’s vignette is stuck in the center of photos, so it is of limited use. I can already see that the new radial gradient alone will be worth the upgrade. Here are details on what else is new in the beta.

I also upgraded my iMac’s operating system to Mountain Lion, which I had to do first to get the Lightroom upgrade. My screen settings are different — everything is brighter and my previous photos on this blog don’t look the same.

I know that I can turn the brightness back down and that I really should get a color monitor, but even more than that, the problem is making me want to finally get a printer so I can fix the photos in time the way I want them to look. Here is the Epson R3000 on my wish list.

Note on the roses: top photo is a Sir Edward Elgar. I don’t know about the other two.
