I am new to LR5. I have been doing some of my exposure editing using the radial filter but am wanting to do more and cannot find the basic panel. I have tried some of the suggestions but still cannot bring the basic panel up.
1. You need to be in the Develop Module
2. Right click (Cmd-Click on a Mac) on one of the headings within the Develop Module right-hand side panel (eg: Detail, Lens Corrections, Effect)
3. Select "Basic" from the pop-up menu that appears.
If this doesn't work or is one of the things the things you have already tried then we may need some more information (Operating Sytem?) and a screen shot perhaps.
You guys are great! Thanks for your help and the quick reply.
