Noticed on http://lightroomkiller​tips.com/ (external link) that there is an ad stating "Something Special is Coming Jan 10 @ NAPP". If you hover your mouse over it, the tool tip says "lr4 beta teaser - 300 x 250". They probably didn't mean to give it away, but seems pretty reliable.

Don't even need the tooltip to guess that on a site called "lightroomkillertips.c​om"

Nice catch.

Things I'd like to see in LR4:

1. Book layouts. I absolutely hate having to maintain a copy of Aperture just to use its book feature. Give us the ability to lay out multi-page book spreads and export as PDF, and I'd be thrilled. Perhaps a partnership with one of the online photo book companies, too, to facilitate one-click printing a la Apple.

2. Layers. This one won't happen, since it would cannibalize sales of Photoshop, but it would be oh so nice to have the ability to make adjustments in layers, with proper masking.

3. Ability to invert, copy, and paste adjustment brushes. I often find myself using local adjustment brushes to do one thing (increasing local sharpness or brightness, for instance), and then wanting to make the reciprocal adjustment to the rest of the photo. This currently requires me to create an entirely new adjustment brush and paint in the changes. But what if I could simply copy the mask created by the first brush, paste it to the second brush, invert it, and then simply dial in my settings. This would streamline things greatly for me.

Sweet. I'd simply like to be able to export directly into an existing catalogue!

Well, there are plenty of other things advertized on that site. Granted, something being announced at NAPP would most likely be tied to Photoshop.

It would probably be a lame excuse to increase the price

I think they could add layers if they do not add too much other layer functions you may see in CS5 and Elements. It would be a great way to utilize all the functions that LR3 offers. Additional features to the adjustment brush would be great. I don't see them adding RGB curves for some reason, but it would be nice. I can't think right now, but should be interesting if it does come out soon...Not sure if I would buy the upgrade though since I bought CS5...

Take a look at "Perfect Layers" from OnOneSoftware. It's not a bad plug-in for LR. :)

is it slow? or make LR more slow should I say? LR3 has some nice features but damn it's so slow compared to 2 something, which ever was the one before.

As far as LR3 goes, it's not slow for me even with the plug-in.. My rig specs are i7 965 with 24 GB of RAM.

for whatever reason though, my ram isn't the issue it seems it's always the CPU that goes crazy, which I don't completely understand :o The apple "genius" recommended I switch to iphoto, I tried not to giggle
