With a moire slider, we no longer need low pass filters in our cameras. Anyone tested this function out yet?

Yes but we don't have the option of turning off the AA filter in our cameras surely?

Did a quick test of this. Google an image with the Moiré effect clearly shown and painted on the reduction.

First image has the adjustment turned off.

Im very pleased with the video support. I know its fairly basic but i can see me using it a lot, especially for Facebook or short clips on to my iPad.

I tried LR3 out recently, my third try at LR. I bought a book from the Lightroom Queen, gave it a really, really good shot, I tried to like it. In the end I decided that i'd rather be punched hard in the nuts twice a week than have to use Lightroom. I'm not kidding.

It has a workflow, a really inefficient one IMHO, that I didn't like. It forces you into its way of thinking. I stuck with Bridge, at more than twice the price. I just hate it, with a passion.

First look:
The soft-proofing is great. It even has RGB numbers instead of percentages. Now it's possible to exactly preview your export.

Basic panel UI is much more intuitive. Exposure for midrange tones, then set black and white points and finally Highlights and Shadows.

Rendition is very different. In the example below I set identical settings where possible aqnd tried for equivalent settings where they are different. Clarity and Vibrance seem much stronger. (In both shots 50 and 24.)

I'm pleased so far.

Can't view Adobe's site at work...odd.

Do you have to have previous version to download the beta?

No, this will run alongside any existing versions so you don't lose the develop, print, import and export presets.

Come on, make me feel silly ;-)a

Here is laura shoes information on LR4. Ske is an excellent certified adobe instructor and when Adobe screwed up my catalog, they turned to her to fix it. She is pretty darn sharp with adobe especially Lightroom and photoshop.

I'm not in front of my LR PC but from memory you need to go down to Tone Curves, then click the drop down button to the right of the point curve to hide the sliders and bring up the RGB curve options.

The one thing I don't like about the new "Book Module" is that you can only publish to Blurb - probably the worst publishing service out there. I have tried Blurb numerous times and the quality just sucks.

Maybe Jeffrey Friedel will create a few other book publishing plug-ins.

The shadow/highlights feature is something sorely needed. The fill light slider was useless in my opinion.

This is great..! No more silly 'recovery' and 'fill light'.. now we have full control!!
