Version 3 has loads of new features like superior noise reduction, accelerated performance, lens correction, support for DSLR video files, Flickr integration, image watermarking, easy image importing, perspective correction, tethered shooting on select cameras and even film grain simulation.
What I find the most useful among the new features is its noise reduction. That saves me a lot of time since I use Lightroom first in adjusting a photo’s brightness before doing any retouch in Photoshop. I started using Lightroom when it was still version 2 and version 3 clearly does not disappoint.
