    The review make is sound like a worthwhile upgrade.
    Just hope that the upgrade price is not too hefty.
    Pity they have dropped the XP support though, that might hurt some people.

    I would think any machine running XP would struggle to the point of absolute frustration.

    My photo-mojo has gone

    Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Metabones Speed Booster and Nikon 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 - almost as insanely wicked as sin itself... but then again, the Voigtlander 10.5mm f/0.95 is kinda fun.

    The soft proofing looks good

    Just had a quick play

    Develop module is quick for edits

    The map module is good if you like recording GPS co-ords


    The Book module could be fun for printing

    Here are some videos on the new additions. I'm excited and will certainly be upgrading, the new (revamped) sliders in the develop module look nice!

    Me too! Can't complain though, I got EDU pricing... Still, if the upgrade cost is cheap enough, I'll be upgrading. Had a play around and already love it

    I don't care what it costs to upgrade ... the difference is so marked (from using the public beta) that I'm going to do that no matter what. I've just processed the same image in 3.6 and 4b and can't get over the marked difference in the results, especially in the lack of haloing from the clarity adjustment and the ability to process shadows and highlights independently for different regions of the image.

    I also purchased LR3 recently, but I knew the recent price cut heralded the arrival of LR4. Hopefully if I decide to upgrade it will work out cheaper this way than if I bought LR4 outright.

    Looking at the beta version, I'm liking the idea of 'proper' curves and the ability to apply things like noise reduction in a localised fashion. Since buying LR3 I don't use Photoshop half as much as I used to and these couple of features would make trips to PS even more infrequent.

    I've gotta say LR4 is just a dream to use, makes LR3.6 seem like a poor relative

    Is the clone tool any better in LR4? That's about the only reason I go back to photoshop now, otherwise I use LR for everything else.

    I like the new LR4 icon much better than the LR3 one. It jet black and 2D instead of the lame 3D icon of the old LR.

    Hmm, bought an EDU license yesterday and am waiting for the rego key. Maybe they'll be kind and throw in a free upgrade

    LR4 beta is the first time I've used Lightroom and I'm finding it a joy to use.
