i don't know how old this news is, but i just read that lightroom 4 going to come out. open beta has already launched!
here is an article that runs through all the changes made:
www.dpreview.com/articles/7481161037/lig...ublic-beta-whats-new
some changes are nice, like the rgb curves. but i don't like some others, the new basic panel for example. or maybe that's just me being autistic xD.
i didn't really get one part of the article though, if we want to convert an image to the new format all our changes we made will be completely different?
When updating PV2010 (or earlier) images which already contain manual Basic panel adjustments, slider values will be carried over or 'transposed' to the appropriate PV2012 settings. But the appearence of your image will change, often significantly. For this reason, I encourage you to apply PV2012 on an image by image basis to your existing photos to get a feel for what the new tools can do.

what do you guys think about the changes?

edit: i think greg will have to update some videos ;). haha!

I was just thinking to buy the 3 version. so I better wait a little.

I have both the macbook pro and a well build windows7 desktop pc.

Which version should I get guys, I couldnt decide wheather go with the apple and carry the labtop allaround with you from room to room and play with it while watching tv and do not have any operation system problems with the Mac.
Or a powerful windows system, sit on your desk and work focused on the desktop, play with the light room more less but more concentrate.use of powerfull hardware with large ram size brings faster responses.

so what you say which one

Just installed Lightroom 4 Beta! I have been using Lightroom 3 for a while now using the free trials lol. It seems like the past few months I would have my thirty days, and once that ran down then 3.5 was released, then again with 3.6. Now that LR 4 beta it free until March, and might be released in March I think Ill wait to buy it then.

Is this true!? "We also aren’t supporting the ten-year old Windows XP operating system with this release. We’ve made changes in favor of committing resources to enhancing new features and capabilities. However, previous versions of Lightroom will continue to run on Windows XP."

Would love to know more about that PV2010 and PV2012 deal on how it may "change" our photos...

Hi Greg!

A part in the article read:
When updating PV2010 (or earlier) images which already contain manual Basic panel adjustments, slider values will be carried over or 'transposed' to the appropriate PV2012 settings. But the appearence of your image will change, often significantly

Does this mean my current settings and look of my photos exported thru LR3 would change quite significantly?

I'm guessing but for most you probably won't be able to tell.
