  • Facebook album selection only displayed up to 25 albums
  • Lightroom 3 could fail to launch Photoshop CS5 if Photoshop CS4 was uninstalled after the Photoshop CS5 installation
  • Numerous cloning or healing spots could have caused Lightroom to become unresponsive
  • Lightroom could have crashed when the metadata filter is selected and the grid is displaying all images in the catalog
  • Lightroom 3.2 could have failed to import all of the images from an iPhone 4
  • Some Sigma X3F raw files were rendering incorrectly
  • Choosing the “Make a second copy to” option on import would result in incorrect folder structure for the second copy
  • Resetting the crop angle by double-clicking the Angle slider removed a custom aspect ratio
  • A tooltip for the Japanese language version of Lightroom 3 displayed the wrong keyboard shortcut for “Flag as Pick”
  • Paste Settings did not apply to all images in the Develop module Filmstrip
  • Smart collections in Lightroom 3 did not use the same definition of “All Searchable Metadata” previously available in Lightroom 2
  • Text watermarks or portions of text watermarks could have failed to be applied to images on export
  • SmugMug publish collection dialog included a mixture of English text  when using a language setting other than English
  • Lightroom would not import files from the Panasonic LX5 that were shot with the iZoom Function set to above 90mm
  • Choosing the Limit File Size option in the export dialog could have stripped certain EXIF fields from the exported file
  • The Targeted Adjustment Tool may have performed slowly in the Lightroom 3.3 release candidate
  • A single image published to multiple collections for a single publish service did not display comments properly
  • Updating an existing Develop preset with all settings could have failed under certain conditions

  • The navigator panel in the Develop module would incorrectly display threshold information when holding down the alt or option key and applying adjustments
  • Applying a flag, star or label setting to an image via the toolbar in the Develop module while in auto-advance mode would result in an incorrect setting display for the subsequent image
  • The application of color noise reduction at low color temperatures (e.g., tungsten or candlelight) could have provided results below our quality standards
