    Problem with Adjustment Brush enhancing parts of picture it shouldn't

    oli.die Level 1

      Working on some pictures I encountered the following problem today. I did my major adjustments to the picture (e.g. Exposure -0,95) and then wanted to add some minor touches with the Adjustment Brush. As soon as I placed one click with the brush tool anywhere in the picture the highlights of the whole picture becamer over exposed.

       

      This first screenshot shows the picture after the first adjustments:

      Now you can see that I added an Adjustment Brush (Size:11, Feather: 25, Flow: 50, Density: 100) far away from the face and still the highlights in face are blown out. Nothing else has been changed:

      Does anyone have an idea what the problem is and how to avoid ACR doing this? It does not make a difference if the adjustment brush is set to a plus or minus value.

       

      Thanks in advance
