LR4.1: Develop defaults changed

Apr 15, 2012 8:58 AM

After doing an "Update DNG preview & Metadata" and "Update to current process (2012)", all unprocessed RAW files now look like if auto tone were applied, all sliders in the develop module are at 0 and for some unprocessed RAWs the white balance is now at 3950 (which is incorrect for those photos). When I change some develop settings and then "reset" the pictures, I get the 0 sliders and auto tone effect right back.


This wasn't so with 4.0 where for unprocessed RAWs the develop sliders weren't all at 0 but at different values (never had a RAW yet where sliders were all at 0) and they usually were slightly underexposed. What I see now are overexposed pictures, and I have no idea what the "original" looked like in terms of exposure. I begin to doubt that if I get such strange results with 4.1, maybe there are other bugs as well for development and I can't trust what I see.

    What happens if you only reset the tone (hold down Alt and you will see the button appear)?

    Sounds like you're comparing Process Version 2012 vs an older PV (like 2010). For PV 2010 the default slider values in the Basic panel were often non-zero (e.g., Brightness 50, Contrast 25). In PV 2012 the default values for all the Basic tone sliders are zero.
