    Develop's 'Auto' results for Vibrance & Saturation

    Develop's 'Auto' works much better nowadays. But I notice it increases Vibrance and Saturation a bit too much for me. I can fix that using Jeffrey’s “Bag-o-Goodies” but wondered why its doing what its doing. I can see how the auto exposure works and there are technical reasons to move the Tone...

    Questions on the "Editing Workflow" in Victoria's Lightroom FAQ book

    I just discovered the Editing Workflow flowchart. Adobe PDF reader says it's page 322 of the book. (If you don't have Victoria's book, by all means do get it, unless you are one of the real gurus in this forum.) This flowchart is the most detailed editing workflow I've found, and it seems...

    In the Develop module, when I am using the Basic tools and the Histogram and I hover over Highlights, Shadows, Whites, and Blacks, I sometimes see an indicator of that specific range in the histogram.

    Can I selectively restore developer settings for some photos from a catalog backup?

    I'm getting frustrated with this. I can't find a practical way of solving what I've done. I was tired and, rather than reorganize into date files some older photos in my catalog, I decided to delete them and import them again, and let LR 6.1 automatically set them into date files. As I clicked...

    Orange Mask Preset

    Hi Guys, So I mess around occasionally scanning old 35mm negatives. I use a Plustek scanner with Silverfast 8.0. Sometimes an orange mask is applied to a B+W image and the orange colour stays on the file. In other words it doesn't just increase the contrast like an orange filter normally would...
