My husband wiped off our wireless keyboard while LR3 was open, a bunch of settings windows popped up and now when I import photos they look ok and then when I click on them in develope mode they load and turn super dark, contrasty, orange and with a dark vignette (without touching any settings) Now, LR3 has always colour corrected a slight amount but this is  extreme...can anyone help me out?

    At some point the adjustments for one of your images was likely saved as the Default State for all images. On import this is being now be applied to every photo.

     

    To reset go to: Preferences>Presets> Default Develop Settings and press the [Reset all default Develop settings] key to restore a more neutral starting position.

    Next step, load your Import dialog.

     

    In the Import Dialog look at the Apply During Import panel and see if there is a preset listed in the Develop Settings pulldown. If so, clear it.

    Let's take a different tack on this.  Your second import of the image muddies the waters slightly. (Generally a reimport is never a good solution)

     

    If you click the [Reset] button in Develop what happens?

    then

    If you apply the Preset: Lightroom General Presets>Zeroed what happens?

    Make absolutely sure no default settings are being applied. Check that all develop settings are default and zero for most of them.

     

    From left field. How are you calibrating your monitor? This weird orange image problem can also be a consequence of a bad monitor profile.

    I agree, Monitor profile is the next place to check in.

    ARe you calibrating? If not, if you are on windows, go into the monitor's properties pane and delete any icc profile associated with the monitor. This will likely fix the problem. What you describe is very typical for a bad monitor profile.

    OK then it is unlikely that it is a monitor profile issue. That is typical

    for windows machines. You should still be calibrating using a hardware

    calibrator though. What must be happening is that some default setting is

    being applied. Go into the menu Lightroom->Preferences->presets and hit the

    "reset all default develop settings" then in the import dialog, make sure

    you have no preset selected.

    Ow! That is not good. For your 5D mk II, you should see a list of profiles like Adobe Default, Camera Standard, Camera Portrait, etc if you are looking at raw files. They somehow got wiped. You should probably reinstall Lightroom to get them back.

    No need to trash it. Just run the installer (the latest LR 3 can be

    downloaded from adobe if you need to) and it will overwrite the old binary

    and reinstall the support files. It should not overwrite your catalog nor

    even your preferences.

    It should now always do Adobe standard except when you specifically change

    the default.
