I am using Lightroom 4 because my Mac is on OSX 10.6.8. As I use it today I'm seeing that the adjustment brush is having little effect. I'm trying to bring areas in shadow up a bit, but there's almost no change. The images shows what should be creating a substantial adjustment and it's almost invisible. Even retroactively sliding the exposure control fully up does just about nothing. Similar lack of effectiveness with other controls, like Contrast. The images are DNG converted/imported from NEF (Nikon D7000) by Lightroom. I have reset, relaunched and restarted. Suggestions?
You need to increase the "Flow" setting located near the bottom of the adjustment brush settings.
Yes, thank you. I actually figured it out and was having difficulty deleting my post. Thanks again.
