    Great features and big thanks for adding them. Color replacement was greatly missings since the reintegration of the separate Mask module.

    Now let me speak about the UI. While I like the new slick UI look, I can also find some discouraging aspects there:

    1) Why is the Paint by color being just an option in terms of the Lighten, Darken, etc.? I would provide it as a separate category. And even more – you use color picker to raise the saturation. That is imo confusing too, as directly on your screen, you can see values like Temperature, Tint, Saturation, Vibrance, which are at zero level.

    2) Flat UI interface is nice, but I miss the separators. On the left side, we can see labels like View, Fix, Local, Crop, without the segmentation, so one has no clue what is the label referring to. I would use mild dotted line to separate those categories. It is too much like one of competing products, where you have icons which you don’t understand what those are good for, without hovering the mouse over, even if there are just few of them.

    3) What I don’t seem to like at all, is the right side panel though! At first sight, it is psychologically much more difficult to quickly orientiate myself. Why is the dragger taking so much space, so that its label have to be above that? That way, you lose a screen space and less of options fit to your screen. Also – it is too flat – were are the colors for Temperature, Tint, Saturation, Vibrance categorie?

    4) Filter name fonts. Why small letters? I found upper letters of PR being quite nice. Those were a bit heavy weight, when categories were collapset, but good to quickly orientiate oneself. Now Filter/Tab names are in small capitals. What is more -it is inconsistent with the icon naming, which is still in big capitals. Please change it back.

    5) This is more of a wish – layer/preset groups, or action history. I recently returned to one of my photos, liking the end resutl. I wanted to find out, what preset I have used. And I can’t. I can see the stack of many filters, without the ability to identify the preset being used. Either we need the history, or the ability to group filters to the stack, which would be the natural option for the whole preset usage, along with its own mask/opacity option …

      Replying to myself. Now I can see, that in some parts of the video, Tint, Vibrance etc. controls have color gradients, some don’t. Thinking out more loud, maybe having Paint by color as sub-part for other adjustments, makes sense too. Difficult to guess the usage patter upon one video …

    good new, i was waiting for that tool for a long time.

    q1. is it possible to use it on a texturizer layer of a preset to remove scratches, manuscripts,… from a face just by sampling the color in a 5×5 zone close to it ? using paint out removes color and tones of the texture while painting same color would be very useful

    q2. can you add a second option to paint gaussian blur ? even if method described above is nice in photoshop, i was sometimes disapointed because too much visible and a gaussian blur paint brush works much better on a face. it is widely used by photomorphis in his tutorials but from layers module where he calls effects blur filter and come back. Having it now in effects texturizer would be really a nice tool.

    Many LR users have been asking for this for a while now. Blake Rudis offered a workaround, using a photo filter, in his “Spotlights” tutorial that I found most useful. But this is a much more elegant and easier to implement approach.

    I see being used by landscape photographers to paint in/out by light and colour.
