Lightroom applies default settings when it imports new images. If you don't like those default settings then adjust one of your newly imported images to how you want your images to be imported and then save new camera defaults. Those new defaults will be applied to any new images that are imported. After you have set those new defaults they can be applied to images that have already been imported by clicking on the Reset button.
Hi, i don't know haw to prevent LR from doing some automatic enhancements (color, exposition, shadows, ...) upon import.
i have the toggle Develop Settings on "none" on the import window, but LR still does make all sorts of enhancements that I don't want.
Does anyone know how to prevent this?
If you are using RAW images, there is no way to stop this from happening. First, Lightroom shows you the JPG preview of the image which is embedded in the RAW file, and then a few seconds later when Lightroom has had the time to render the image using the RAW, you see the newly rendered image, which of course is different than the JPG.
As stated by JimHess, if you don't like this, your only real choice is to create a develop preset to be applied at import that is more pleasing to you. But you will always see the image change from JPG to whatever its appearance is when the RAW is rendered, either using default settings, or you the appearance using the develop preset you created.
Also, there is a preset under the Lightroom general presets called "Zeroed" that you can apply to your images. Either apply some sort of preset or create new camera defaults.
Many thanks guys, this is very helpful!
have a great WE! Gerald
