Develop defaults for Tiffs got messed up. Check your HSL panel to see if all the sliders are at zero.
I checked the HSL sliders in LR and you are right they were off. But, why are the sliders changing like that? I have discovered that it has nothing to do with CS5 at all. I exported a RAW file from LR4 that I had done no editing at all to, to a TIFF file and got the same problem. The HSL sliders are off and blues are over saturated. This does not happen when I export the RAW file to PSD or JPG, so far only to TIFF. Am I missing something. Why is this happening? I have been using Lightroom since version 1 and have use versions 2 and 3 as they came out, but I never had this problem until this year. Is this a bug? If so, it began in version 3.6. I bought version 4 hoping it would fix it, but it didn't.
Like I said, the Develop defaults for Tiff files have been modified. Whether you did it on purpouse or by mistake, or something got corrupted — I don't know.
To restore, select a Tiff file, go to Develop module and click Develop>Set Develop Default>Restore Adobe defaults. From now on, all new Tiffs should look right.
You may need to reset HSL sliders for the older Tiffs.
Thank you. That solved the problem. I have never knowingly changed the defaults, so I don't know how it changed. The command that that you gave is not one I had ever used and so, was not familiar with it. Thank you agian.
