Take a look at some obvious changes in the adjustment bricks:

The most obvious is the new Professional Auto Enhance button. This is the single most significant change to the way will start adjusting images. I can’t imagine very many situation where you wouldn’t want to start there, just to see what it does. If it looks good, move on! Next!

Brushable white balance opens a lot of creative possibilities.

Obviously, we’ll be going into this in much more detail later but I wanted to get a quick screenshot up that shows what we’re dealing with.

See if you can recognize the changes.

I’m most curious to see if Noise Reduction has any improvement.

I like the new tabbed interface…

@William, yep - same here.

Just upgrade and I don’t like the gray all over we lost the color and this was great to look for album or smart album new takes more time.

I was hoping the “Before & After”, along with lens correction features Lightroom 4 has would have been included. I like the way the latest version processes my RAW files. They have a better “natural” look.

I’m surprised they’ve revamped the MobileMe galleries interface given this is being retired at the end of the month.

Oh no - think I have to finally upgrade to Lion. Does not support 10.6.x

The vignette slider has also changed to a -1 to +1 with less than zero being a white vignette and above being the dark. I like it. The shadow slider is pretty potent actually. The effect is much more natural than before - at least that’s how I see it.

I would have liked to see some lens distortion correction.

I like the new interface though - clearer and easier to use.

I am I’m surprised that they are missing advanced functions under the shadow / highlight tool.
I do not want ipohto interface :)
