This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom: Auto Tone over expose all images by large value

Whenever I use the Auto Tone function, it dramatically overexposes my photos. All photos are shot in JPEG on a Sony Alpha 6000 with a Sony 16-70 lens. I can't figure out why it does this. 

The first image is a photo with nothing done to it, the second is the same photo after applying Auto Tone, you can see how overexposed the auto tone version is. It does this pretty much with
every photo in my library.

This is what AutoTone did to the photo:

It does that because it sucks. Don’t use it. Fixed!
