The units of measurements displayed in the Basic panel (in Lightroom’s Develop module and in the Camera Raw dialog in Photoshop) for Temperature and Tint differ between RAW and JPEG files. When working with a raw file, the Temperature slider ranges from 2,000 to 50,000 Kelvin and the Tint sliders range from -150 to 150. When working with JPEG files (or other pixel based files such as PSD or TIFF) the Temperature and Tint sliders both range from -100 to 100.
You might also notice that when working with RAW files, Lightroom displays a list of “preset” White Balance settings (Auto, Daylight, Cloudy, Tungsten etc. – this list might differ slightly from camera to camera). When you work with a JPEG file, LIghtroom only displays As Shot, Auto and Custom in the pull-down menu

If you’ve noticed a difference in the range of values that appear to the right of the Temperature and Tint sliders in the Basic panel in Lightroom’s Develop module, it’s probably due to the fact that when working with Raw files, Lightroom displays values of 2000-50000 Kelvin for Temperature, and -150 – +150 for Tint. When working with JPEG, both Temperature and Tint sliders display numeric values from -100 to +100.

Since the Basic panel is one of the most used panels, there are shortcuts to help move quickly from one slider to the next. Use the “.” (period) and “,” (comma) to move from one slider to the next and use the “+” (plus) and “-” (minus) keys to increase/decrease the slider’s value. Add the Shift key to move in larger increments and the Option (Mac) / Alt (Win) to move in smaller increments.
Note, for these shortcuts to work, you must click on the name of the slider – not the text entree area.
