January 13, 2006 - Adobe's Lightroom digital photo workflow solution was named a Best of Show product January 12 at the Macworld Conference & Expo San Francisco 2006. Lightroom is still in beta, but it has generated interest among digital photographers. It is particularly interesting for Mac users, who have been checking out Apple's Aperture software.

Aperture and Lightroom are both tools for organizing large numbers of photos. They have color correction and other editing tools, but no compositing functions or layers, and they browse, read and convert RAW files. Aperture is in its first commercial release, and is available in Macintosh OS X. Lightroom's first beta release is compatible with OS X exclusively as well, though Adobe plans a Windows version at some point, apparently when the Longhorn release of the Windows operating system is ready.

13 other products were also "Best of Show" at Macworld.
