    White Balance modification - ACR vs LR Classic

    parkylondon@gmail.com Level 1

      TIL: in ACR you can draw a rectangle with the dropper to select an area when modifying the white balance.

       

      To do this, you open the image in ACR and on the top bar, take the first eyedropper tool - you can then "paint" a rectangle on the image to modify the white balance using the range of colours within the rectangle.

       

      This doesn't work in Lightroom - you can only change it as a single point.

      Am I missing something in LR? And if so, how can I do this in LR?

       

      If not, why are these two behaviours different? I thought ACR and LR Develop were basically the same engine!

       

      Thanks!
