    Graduated Filter and Adjustment Brush not working with LR 9.3

    LR 9.3 automatically installed over night, something I must stop happening given my current problem! When I use the graduated filter or the adjustment brush I get the pink tell tale of where I have painted but the sliders do not work and no adjustments are made. Both are critical areas and I...

    Saving a local adjustment brush movements

    Hello is there anyway to save all adjustments that I have made with the adjustment brush? Creating a brush preset only saves the values but not the area that I painted. The reason is, I wish to create a star shape with one brush and to be able to use it in the future. This works when I save the...

    Can’t see adjustments being made anymore

    I recently upgraded to LR classic version to 9.0 Now when I use my adjustment brush I can see the initial brush but any changes that I do to the slider i.e. exposure temp etc while the brush is in use I can’t see the changes until I hit done. Before the update I could see the changes as I was...

    How to Hide Mask in Adjustment Brush

    I have a feeling this is operator error but I can't find an answer. When I enable the ADJUSTMENT BRUSH (just started playing with it) and paint an area, the mask appears. I make adjustments using the slider but I can't toggle off the mask to see the adjustments. When I paint, the mask is...

    New adjustment brush with same settings?

    Sometimes after I apply an adjustment brush, I want to apply the same settings (or at least START with the same settings) to a different area. But, when I click "New," the settings typically snap back to something else (I haven't quite determined to what the settings revert to). Is there a way...

    A Plus (+) sign in my Adjustment Brush

    I have a A Plus (+) sign in my Adjustment Brush and the brush does not work. I have no apparent problem with any other adjustment tools. Any ideas? I am run-in on a MacBook Pro with OS 10.14.5

    Develop module Adjustment Brush not always working

    My Adjustment Brush in LR5 is very hit and miss - sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I get it to work by clicking on Spot Removal then returning to it. I may need to do that 7 out of 10 times. Any suggestions how I can get rid of this annoying quirk? Thanks

    Sometimes sticky adjustment brush

    For a long time I have noticed that the adjustment brush sometimes keeps the settings I made in the last edit when I go to a new image and sometimes it does not, but I've been unable to determine what governs this. It would be really handy if I could somehow tell it to keep the settings (without...

    Brush/Zoom Behavior

    Lightroom CC has suddenly begun behaving very oddly. The zoom tool defaults to negative no matter what I do. I switch it to 2:1, for example, and after a couple uses it switches to 1:8. And even worse, when I use the adjustment brush, spreading my fingers on the trackpad now zooms the image...

    Retrieving "Blown out" highlights ?

    Attached is a picture I took last year with an Lumix FZ200 camera of wild garlic in a wooded glade. I've tried several ways to adjust the sunlight areas of the picture, but to no avail. Can you suggest how I could retreive the blown out sunlight areas on the picture?

    Hello. I got myself into a mess and need advice. I developed 200+ pictures from a shoot, making basic corrections as well as selective masking to remove a white background blemishes.

    Adjustment brush color is too faint.

    I'm fairly new to LR 5 and am having trouble with my adjustment brush tool. The red color marking my selection is so very faint I can just barely see it. Is there a way to deepen/darken the color?

    Adjustment Brush Overlay Mask

    Masks in Photoshop can be quickly inverted. Does anyone using LR (CC) or LR6 know of a way to invert an adjustment brush overlay mask in Lightroom alone?

    Adjustment brush with color - can't get the color I set.

    Hi all - I'd appreciate an explanation of how colored adjustment brushes work. What I see is that even when I have an absolutely white area (R,G.B)= (100,100,100)% on the histogram, and I select brush color as H=0;S=100, which gives a seemingly pure Red, my brush with (Feather-0, Flow=100 and...
