Would suggest you to reset Lightroom Preferences and then, check.
Follow the instructions mentioned in this article : Resetting (or 'Trashing') the Lightroom Preferences file - Lightroom Forums
Thanks Chetna. I am unable to find the lightroom plist file to delete in my Library/Preferences folder. Is there anywhere else it could be?
could you please share your Lightroom version and Operating system so that I can share proper steps with you?
Lightroom version 5.7, osx Yosemite 10.10.5.
Follow the below steps :
- Quit Lightroom
- Open Finder and click on go menu (at the top) > choose go to Folder
- Type ~/library and hit Go
- Open Preferences folder
- Rename com.adobe.Lightroom5.plist to com.adobe.Lightroom5-old.plist
Thank you Chetna but I have followed your instructions and for some reason that prefs file is not in my Preferences folder. Strange, because the Photoshop Elements plist is there. Is there anywhere else it could be?
You don't happen to know what the default adjustment brush settings are (ie. flow & feather)?
Its strange that the preferences file is not there.
The default adjustment brush settings should be same as they were for the previous images.
And the output that you are getting depends on each image type which can give different output.
Thanks Chetna. But I think my problem was that I had accidentally changed the feather of the brush to zero by using one of the shortcut keys. Now that I put it back at 100 it seems to work again. See when I was clicking on a previous adjustment (eg. a teeth whitening) - it shows me the exposure, clarity values etc. but it doesn't tell me the details of the brush I was using (feather, flow, density) - the brush values stay the same whether you have clicked on a previous adjustment or not - and that's why I thought the previous adjustment was made using the current settings and hence why I was confused that with the same settings I was getting different results.
Thanks so much for your help anyway, I appreciate it
Glad to know that your issue had been resolved.
