  2. Didn’t work for me lightroom 6.13. Adjusted many of the exposures either way to dark or completely whited out!

  3. I enjoy the “Coffee Break” videos and information. Is there a way to have Benjamin record somewhere that doesn’t have the echo?

  5. Hey Scott/Benjamin,

    I’m assuming the the the exposure and other sliders move after this adjust. Could you click on one of the changed exposures and show us how the changes looked with the sliders?
