I too am extremely bummed about it update. The thing I miss terribly could be the ability to blur the backgrounds! Why would they leave that feature over update? I find the new filters to be quite unappealing. I also miss an even more distinct contrast! I found the wheel dials in the previous version being extremely user-friendly and fast. Hoping I can get back on the previous version.
