Feature requests for Lightroom 4, also posted here: http://forums.adobe.com/message/41385...

I would love to see some more auto white balance algorithms. There are many other algorithms that do an outstanding job that could be implemented to speed up workflow for busy photographers for when the lightroom autobalance doesn't work. Some of these include: i2e (colour science), perfectly clear, and xe847.

These 3 algorithms also apply an auto-toning feature which, when the Lightroom version doesn't work, these might give excellent results quickly. Photoperfect is a program that implements these 3 technologies into its interface and is excellent for quickly tweaking jpegs and tiffs. I would love to see this same capability married to Lightroom's excellent raw conversion engine and outstanding new highlight and shadow sliders.

A skin-tone white balance would be most welcome. Silkypix has this feature. When there is no neutral coloured object, you can click on a skin-tone and this will often white balance the image correctly.

More profiles would be welcome. To use Silkypix 5 Pro as an example again, it has 6 portrait profiles--these are most useful for achieving the perfect look for your photograph. Some are good for single light sources, while others excel at providing pleasing colour under mixed light sources.

Sliders to fine tune noise reduction based on tone (ie. shadow, midtone, and highlight) would truly make Lightroom's noise reduction the gold standard.
