Has anyone got Lightroom 3? I picked up a beta copy the other day and its pretty good. It does a neat autocorrection for lens distortion based on the metadata and straightens up photos with a single button based on tables compiled by Adobe and the camera manufacturers.
Also much improved B&W conversion with added film grain

Separate prizes for "the human touch" and "taste of kiwi" (as well as overall greatness etc), so fingers crossed these are both relevant :butbut:

BAM - heard yesterday that I took out the "taste of kiwi" prize for No 8 wireless. $500 cash prize, not bad for an hour of mucking around :D

What did you use to merge them? I have this sweet little free program called autostitch which seems to do a pretty good job
