As I understand then this will mean unlimited print length (assuming paper goes on forever!!)

Any idea where I can buy infinite-length paper rolls?

One thing that I have been playing with for the last year or so, is the content-aware scaling (smart image resizing) developed originally by Shai Avidan and sold to Adobe - - - this is fully integrated into Photoshop CS4 and is something that I will make good use of in my wedding book layouts or page layouts for graphics jobs or commercial clients. I do a lot of this type of thing manually now by selecting partes of images and resizing, but this feature makes it much easier and does a superior job. The cute demo they did in the live presentation, was fitting a "smart" VW van in between 2 other parked VW vans where the space was about half the length of the van - not only was this possible, but the proportions of the door handles, lights and other important details were kept in tact. For any who aren't aware of content-aware scaling, here is one of several videos describing:

Content Aware Scaling is the coolest new feature I've seen. Check it out

I am thinking about upgrading to CS4 extended, but couldn't find out if the price of 349$ was the upgrade price from CS3 extended, and that you have to pay more to upgrade from the regular version of CS3. ( the link to upgrade information on the adobe site I was navigated to was dead).

I generally have to find out first on what you can actually do on 3d compositing and video work with the extended version.

The overview on the Adobe site is very general. Does anybody have a good link to get to know CS4 extended better? Comparisons with software like Cinema 4D or Blender would be great, too, so you know the scope of the extended version better.

I only use about 5% of the CS3's vast feature set, but I'm an upgrade junky. So, I already pre-ordered PS CS4 and InDesign CS4 last week.

95% of my digital imaging needs are very well served by Lightroom 2.1. But, the closer integration of PS CS4 to LR is a great feature. The new layers capabilities will make it easier for hobbyists like me climb the learning curve.

As a member of NAPP, I already reviewed the PS CS4 tutorials on the NAPP members web site. It really looks awesome.

Cheers.

Did I completely miss it, or has nobody mentioned Smart Collections in Bridge?

This ROCKS!  Smart Collections lets you group and re-purpose images without making duplicates all over the place.  It was the only reason I used Aperture, and then LR2...  now it's in Bridge!  wooHOO!
