I recently upped to LR4, and noticed a major issue with the way auto tone works with the new 2012 profile - it wants to seriously underexpose my pics - 2 or 3 stops worth.

Here are three sample images, 1 as taken, 1 as auto tone via the 2010 camera calibration , 1 as auto tone via the 2012 camera calibration

1 - As taken

2 - 2010 Calibration

3 - 2012 Calibration
LR42012.jpg

This has happened with a large number of images - though not all of them, ranging from images 'freshly' imported into LR4, and those that were already in my 3.6 catalog...

All 3 were RAW, but the problem does not occur with just RAW images.

Thanks Cletus I'll give it a go for my D90, mind I have just processed 190 seascapes and most worked well with the shift click method.

Auto Tone in LR 4.1 Final is much better than it was in 4.2 RC.
