Hi, new user here. Trying to replicate my PS Advanced curve auto color correction settings. I would select Find Dark and Light Colors and Snap Neutral Midtones. See attachment. What is the best way to replicate that in Lightroom? These settings gave very accurate color reproduction.

Thanks.

Welcome to Lightroom Forums Stinson! Seem to be another topic that was buried under XMas snow... ;)

I think you can replace the effect of "Find Dark and Light" in Develop module by holding Shift and double clicking the words "Recovery" and "Blacks" in the right panel. As for "Snap Neutral Tones", I have no idea what it does but it mat probably be handled by "Fill Light" or by dragging in the histogram or tone curve.

The equivalent of snap neutral tones is basically the white balance eyedropper. LR's designed primarily for raw files, so you shift colours as a whole rather than at highlights, shadows and midtones separately.

Ah but how do you automate that in LR for a series of images?

Closest you'd get would be to set White Balance on Auto.

The Feature Request link on the toolbar at the top of the page is your best bet for getting direct to the team.
