first impression is that 2003 is still more up to my taste
Hi Vit, that was my first impression too, but then I experimented with Process 2010 quite a bit more and finally came to the conclusion that with much tweaking it actually can be superior. But it takes quite different parameters than the 2003 version did, so comparing the two isn't trivial.
However, I do recall thinking exactly what you are now, though - that I didn't care for the warning symbol assuming I really did want to use process 2003. I have to wonder if process 2003 is destined for retirement in the next version, hence the stern warning.
It looks like I can get similar result with slightly less sharpening and slightly more luminance NR and considerably more Color NR, although not equal. Interpolation errors in luma channel around Nyquist frequency remains slightly more visible on different patterns. But I'm aware that there is a serious develpoment ant testing behind 2010 processing, so it is probably better overall and this is just my opinion, based on short testing and looking on things that I personally find important.
It would be good to know will 2003 process option remain in further version of ACR. In case it remains, it would be nice to remove that exclamation
I was generally impressed with PV2010, but without any hard testing and pixel peeping. I'd be interested to know if people are generally happy with the ACR Detail tab slider defaults for PV2010, or if there's a trend towards something different.
I ended up with both Luminance Detail and Color Detail turned all the way up to 100.
As I recall, images of peoples' hair benefited from the Luminance Detail being as high as possible, and some images of some artwork where I had small white and colored details on a red background convinced me I wanted lots of color detail.
No, it is not possible to disable the badge / warning icon when processing images in PV 2003.
