    Is the Develop module falling behind the times? (Capture One)

    Also just started Cap One on a trial basis, after such a long time with LR it fees like a steep learning curve. Also disappointed that my colour flags did not import. Anyway a few days left on the trial so not given up yet!

    LR6 Facial Recognition - Experiences

    "The bad: - VERY often I went to type a name and found I wasn't fully in the entry mode -- each letter I typed then did something (i.e. shortcuts). Can make a real mess that way, very fast. They REALLY need a more firm way to lock you into text entry when doing People things. I also think...

    Auto Tone / White Sky

    Another alternative is to "shift click" on each of the sliders in the basic pannel, I have also set up a preset for this along with my other approach of setting highlights to zero and shadows to 100, I then hold down the alt key left click and drag the whites and blacks so they just appear.
