Lightroom’s Auto Adjustments (it’s more than just the ‘Auto’ button)

Longtime Lightroom team member Benjamin Warde has a great little 60-second tip on the improved Auto tone button, but in his video, he shows a great tip that goes beyond that (definitely worth checking out). 🙂

See, told ya! (Thanks, Benjamin)

Hope you all have a rockin’ Tuesday!

  2. I learned this tip from Scott on KelbyOne a few years back. Experimenting, I’ve since found it works with all the slides in the Tone section on the Basic Panel.

  3. That’s a long-standing feature for white/black/shadow and highlights adjustments, no ?
    Also, you get different values using Auto than these double-clicks…and depending on the image profile on the image, either of those paths will yield different values too.
