Is CS3 worth the upgrade to CS4?

IMO, yes.

It's not a must-have update, like adding adjustment layers to PS 7 or Smart Filters to CS3. Well, if you have a 64-bit Windows OS, you'll likely consider must-have. Or, if you have a fancy GPU, like my dual SLI video cards.

But there are new features to consider:

ACR 5 and continued ACR updates, particularly localized changes
Improved Curves Dialog
Adjustments Palette
Masks Palette
Content-Aware Scaling
Enhanced DOF

Cheers,

Mitch
