This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Lightroom Classic 7.3: Graduated Filter Orientation Problem (merging).

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Lightroom Preset Gradients still rotate between vertical and horizontal images..As of Lightroom Classic CC version 7.3 presets with a graduated filter now rotate depending on the orientation of the image.

For example. If I create a preset with a grad filter coming from the top of a horizontal image and apply it to a vertical image  the grad filter will come from the side instead of the top. This makes presets that utilize a grad filter pretty much useless and inconstant. Can we please get this issue fixed by the next release of Lightroom?

Thanks

From the merged thread:

I observe screwy but different results:

1. Open a raw in Develop.

2. Do Edit In Adobe Photoshop CC 2018.

3. In PS, do File > Save As, Format: Photoshop. Library thumbnails look like:



4. In LR, open the PSD in Develop.

5. Use the Adjustment Brush with Exposure = -4 to put a mark (the hand-drawn letters "UR") in the upper-right corner.

6. Do Rotate Right.



7. Do Edit In Adobe Photoshop CC 2018, Edit Original.  

8. In PS, do File > Save.

9. Observe the PSD's thumbnail preview in Library is incorrectly rotated from the original raw 180 degrees, with the mark added by the adjustment brush still in the lower-right corner:



10. Open the PSD in Develop and observe that it still appears correctly as it did after step 6:



11. In Library, select the PSD and do Library > Build 1:1 Previews. The thumbnail remains unchanged.

12. Export the PSD to a JPEG and observe that the exported JPEG looks like the PSD thumbnail in step 9.

13. Restart LR. 

14. Observe that the PSD thumbnail is now correctly rotated right 90 degrees from the original, with the adjustment-brush mark incorrectly in the upper-right corner:



15. Export the PSD to a JPEG and observe that the JPEG looks like the thumbnail in step 14.

16. Open the PSD in Develop and observe that it incorrectly looks like the thumbnail in step 14:



LR 7.5 / Mac 10.13.6.

Updates to Lightroom Classic, Camera Raw, and the Lightroom Ecosystem were released yesterday and contain a fix for this issue.  Please install the appropriate update and see if it solves this problem. You can read more about the updates here.

Thank you for your patience.

Smit and Rikk, 

The problems reported here with copying local adjustments and crops between photos of different rotations still exist in LR 9.2:

- radial filters (the first post)

- adjustment-brush settings and crops

- spot removal

- graduated filters

I can't find a report here that was addressed by LR 9.2.  So I changed this topic from Solved to In Progress.

Please see the official post at the top of the thread. This would fall into the realm of a feature request. I will double check with Smit but I believe his post to this thread may have been in error.  I apologize for any confusion.

This fundamental problem is crippling for portrait shooters. To get an identical crop for portrait orientation between PSD (saved in PS) and RAW (in Lightroom):

1. Create a virtual copy of the RAW, remove the crop
2. Edit in Photoshop, rotate 90 degrees CW (clockwise), save as PSD
3. Back in LR, rotate the PSD CCW (counter-clockwise)
4. Sync the crop with the original RAW to get identical cropping

Having to do this with a series of portrait shots with mixed RAW and PSD is an excessive amount of extra work. And if you were looking at thumbnails for those PSD's outside of LR, they are all rotated 90-degrees CW or CCW.

I'm chiming in from another thread that I started recently. John_R_Eliis mentioned this may be a better venue for the issue I am experiencing. 

 

–––––

 

I found a bug a when pasting Develop Settings >Transform to HDR images. 

 

When I past a guided transform setting from my base exposure onto an HDR image made from the base and two other exposures, the transform guides are loaded incorrectly/ sideways. This issue only seems to affect portrait orientation images that are merged into an HDR file. 

 

I document exhibitions for galleries with florescent lights which need an HDR treatment in the lights/ ceiling. I only composite the HDR section of the overhead lights into my base exposures to ensure accurate color and tone of the artwork and interior space throughout the shoot. Otherwise, I would only work on the HDR image and this would not be a problem. 

 

If I understand correctly and my issue falls under Rikk's explanation of "behavior is as designed", I would argue that this behavior is a critical error and would only benefit Lightroom's users to correct it. 

 

I'm working with a FUJI GFX100, 2019 MacBook Pro 16'' running OS10.15.6 with Lightroom Classic CC 9.4
