I imported some old photos that were edited on Lightroom CS5 to Lightroom CC because I wanted to use the newer features (ie: highlights, whites, etc). But when I import them the editing table reverts to CS5. How do I change the editing tools back to CC on an old DNG file?
You probably need to change the process version to 2012. You can do that in the calibration section. Or, you should see a little lightning bolt in the lower right-hand corner of the histogram. Click on it and you can change the process version.
