Hello, welcome to my first post here!
I'm taking picures to sell my Canon gear online. Since my very sloppy setup is darker at the right, I added a graduated brightness filter (hope that's the right translation) ~ +0,7 stops from right to left at some images and THIS happens. See the before- and after screenshots.

The first example has only WB batch-synced.
The second example has just undergone some cropping.

I upgraded at the same time from Canon to Fuji and from Lightroom 5.xy to LR Classic 8, so I have no idea if this is a general LR issue or just one with Fuji RAWs, but it's really weird. What do you think?

In your problem images, did you inadvertently set Clarity or Sharpness to a negative value?

Yes, I did! I had the idea tonight during sleep and checked this morning. Before I read your post. I didn't even know there is such a slider for graduate sharpness and since it was completeley to the left my eyes apparently didn't notice something unusual. God this is embarassing. Is it possible to just delete this post please? I see you're a moderator, so maybe you can.

Generally speaking, we'd prefer to leave such posts up, as they might (and often do) help someone else with the same problem.

There's really no need to feel embarrassed....one of the reasons we can often diagnose the likely cause of an issue is because we've done it ourselves and so learnt from our mistake.

The good thing is, it helped me find this place here. Seems to be a great resource for Lightroom questions. You might read from me more often now ;)
