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.

    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?
