She seems smaller in height...

I do not see how it seems that way. She is almost as tall as Superman, just like always.

I don't think she is any shorter. She has always been a little shorter than Superman and the way they are posed in this picture does not give a clear picture.

Just looking at this particular Jim Lee piece *gag*, I don't see any noticeable height difference for Diana other than the other glaring changes....

If you look at David Finch covers i'm inclined to agree. From what i've seen from other artists, no she doesn't seem shorter.

I think she does look shorter.

I think they are standing on a rounded platform with variable height, one that has the characters taller in front, looking shorter the further they go out on the sides.   Notice for example, how similar Supes and Bats appear at the "Center". 

Another example, look at how tall WW looks compared to GL and to Aquaman.  For that matter, GL looks much taller than Aquaman. 
 
The same with Batman over Flash and Cyborg and Flash looking much taller than Cyborg. 
 
It just seems like the heroes have shrunk, when in fact they haven't!  (I Hope!)

They also changed Wonder Woman's shampoo from Pert Plus to Tresemmé. I'm surprised no one noticed the sheer volume control.

@Erik: yeah but in Lee's cover, everyone looks the same height, except for Cyborg, who towers over the others.

Supes and Bats are front and center.   
 
As you move outwards and away from the center, all the characters appear smaller.

Doesn't seem shorter at all.

I don't particularly care for the 80s hairstyle, but I'll deal with it.
