Shift-Arrow in Curves adjustment layer CS6

Apr 10, 2013 2:11 PM

Tags: #adjustment_layer #cs6 #curves

In previous verions of Photoshop, when I made a curves adjustment layer, selected the midpoint, then did a shift-arrow adjusstment, it was always in increments of 10. Now in CS6, it is 12 on my machine, 13 and 14 on the two other machines in the office I have checked. Why would that be? Can that be changed so it is 10 again?

 

FYI - this is all in RGB mode if that matters.

    What operating system are you using?

     

    What version of photoshop cs6?

     

    Maybe you could clarify or show a screenshot of where on the curve in the curves adjustment adjustment panel your placing the "midpoint"

     

    Are you using the light or pigment graph in the curves panel?

     

    If you don't press the shift key do the points move in increments of one?

     

    Any difference if you use Image>Adjustments>Curves?

     

    All i can say is it seems to work on windows 7 x64 and photoshop cs6 extended 13.01.1

    (increments of 10 with Shift-arrow keys)

    You might try resetting the photoshop preferences by holding down the Shift+Cmd+Option keys and then starting

    photoshop and keep holding the keys down until you get a dialog asking if you want to delete the photoshop settings file.

    Press Yes because you do.

     

     

    Also, there should be a 13.04 update for cs6 on macs if your using a perpetual license.

    It depends on size of curve panel. Resize (enlarge) it or use old style modal dialog for adjusment layers.

    We almost always have it on expanded view since we make such exacting moves (also why we are asking about such a small variance).

    What is expanded view? It`s a style or size (in pixels) of the panel?

    I believe r-bin is right as i was testing with the curves panel expanded, but as soon as i dock the panel with the other panels to a much smaller size, the increments are inconsistant.

     

    The panel in cs6 is resizable, so i use it resized until the full curves graph shows all the values.

     

    works in 10 increments

    Increments are not in 10, but arbitrary
