The Auto Tone option in Lightroom Classic and Adobe Camera Raw has been completely reworked to help create more pleasing adjustments with a single click.

Original image


Auto setting applied

Depending on the image, applying Auto setting will make changes to the following sliders:  Exposure, Contrast, Highlights, Shadows, Whites, Blacks, Saturation, and Vibrance. Note: if you apply Auto, then crop the image, try applying Auto again – Lightroom will recalculate the adjustment based on the information with in the newly defined crop.

In addition:

  • In both Lightroom Classic and Camera Raw, when using the Color Range Masking tool, Option -click (Mac) | Alt -click (Win) on an individual sample point now quickly deletes it.
  • Lightroom Classic also now supports tethered capture with the Nikon D850 camera.

    Would be great if the people at Adobe, could finally implement the ability to view presets in a large window. This has been requested for 6 years now on Adobe forums. No one is listening. Capture One already has this feature for very long.

    I like to work with the new Lightroom cc, but find there is a lot of function that is not included, compare too Classic. When and if will they have the same?

    Kind regards
