Clarity Slider

Please, please bring back the original clarity slider...the one in Lightroom 4 is dreadful. It adds exposure adjustments now and is difficult to control. The subtlety of the older version is gone...if anyone else agrees with me then please comment below and perhaps Adobe will take notice.

    I have read someone from Adobe say something similar to "The new clarity slider has twice the effect as the old one".


    So, if you were using a clarity of 25 in the past, maybe you should try a 12. Or maybe you should continue to use Process Version 2010, which still has the old clarity slider


    Do you really think Adobe will go back just because some people in a forum don't like it?


    For what its worth, I like the new clarity slider, I think it is an improvement.

    i do not agree.

    i like the new one better.


    keep in mind you now have to use a value of around 20 instead of 40 to get a similiar effect.

    Also try using stronger Clarity values in combination with reducing the Contrast value.

    Not a fan of the PV2012 slider, I must admit - it's too heavy-handed and, as others have pointed out, tending too much towards faux HDR, something I detest.
