I wasn't sure how to phrase the subject line Basically if I have a bunch of color photos edited, sometimes I'll need to spot-retouch where I remove some redness from skin, or I'll have a sunflare gradient with yellow color added and things like that. My desire is to throw a black and white preset over my whole batch of images when I'm done, but I have to go and check each one to make sure those modifications aren't on there or someone will have bluegreen skin on their B&W image, or the yellow sunflare is still yellow. I don't want to remove all radial or spot adjustments on these because SOME of those edits I would want to keep, it's just the ones that give it funky color that I want to remove.
Is there ANY WAY to tell lightroom to disregard those types of changes when I do a b&w preset or to somehow remove all of those adjustments in bulk...without throwing out the baby with the bathwater? I'm a newbie here, so certainly there must be a better way. Please and thank you!
From your screen shot I see the B&W preset you are applying is some type of Blend, I think it is a Saturation blend (Name looks like saturatte blend b&w).
What happens if you apply a straight B&W preset?
