      anyone else seeing green outlining appear when using the manual focus slider function? the green outlining appears when an object is in focus. i haven't had this problem prior to the update but it is occurring now after the update. thanks

          The green outlines show the features that are in focus, as you’ve observed. It’s intentional, and of course doesn’t show up in the final image.

           

          Are you you asking whether this could be turned off? I don’t think there’s a toggle to disable it.

            Hi Michael,

             

            Thank you for your prompt reply.

             

            Yes - the green shows up when the image is in focus. One of the main reasons why i use the lightroom camera function is because the manual focus is extremely versatile, easy to use, and powerful since the standard iOS camera is not manually adjustable. it is a defining feature for me and with this new update to include the focused images in green, i find it very distracting and hindering. I find myself taking the photos and having to review them to see if the focus looks perfect, and then re-taking the photo if needed.

             

            Is there a way to disable this or toggle on/off? or perhaps a small update to include this toggle feature? if there is no way to solve this then i may be better off using the normal iOS camera for the time being.

             

            Thanks,

            Vince

              Hi Vincent,

               

              im not aware of any way to turn this off while manual focus is active. If you return to autofocus, this doesn’t appear.

               

              The normal iOS camera doesn’t have any manual focus, so I don’t know what you’d gain there.

                Thanks for the question and feedback here.

                 

                Mike is right that the green outline highlights what's currently in focus whenever in manual focus mode.

                 

                We let the app team know a toggle for the green highlighting is desirable for some users, and they are looking at what can be done for a future release.  Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts!

                  Curious quesiton: How does the green outline highlights help with the focus? In other words, why is there a need to have this green outline and how does it help the users with focusing? Thanks!

                    Hi digiarthur,

                     

                    The green highlights simply give a visual cue for the edges that are in focus. It could otherwise be difficult to tell what is in focus as you manually adjust the focal length.
