Friday Tip – Resetting Tone

If you’re working in the Develop module chances are you’ll be working with the Tone and Color settings in the Basic panel. Well if you ever want to reset your Tone or Color settings without resetting the changes to your whole photo (Cropping, etc…) try this. Hold down the Option/Alt key. When you do that you’ll see the words Reset Tone and Reset Color appear instead of Tone and Color above the sliders. Just click to reset those settings but leave everything else as is. Well, that wraps up another week. Have a great weekend.
