Adobe Lightroom

Even though Adobe Lightroom (currently in open beta) appears to be a response to Apple’s Aperture, it’s obviously been in development for too long to be merely a reaction. From the little I’ve played with it so far, it’s pretty amazing. It’s still in beta, and not nearly feature complete, so (Mac users) you can try it out, and provide feedback (for God’s sake, Adobe, make the scrolling elements respond to the scroll wheel) and hopefully the thing will keep moving in a positive direction. So far, I’m impressed. (BTW, windows users fret not, a version for your sad little toy OS is forthcoming :P).
