Just discovered this as a new problem in LR Classic 8.4, this isn't present in 8.2.

In LR if you hover over a preset in the preset browser a preview of the effect is displayed in navigator and main screen. In 8.4 however if image is in portrait orientation and the preset contains either brush or radial actions these will be incorrectly displayed in the preview - they appear squashed. When you actually apply the preset however they apply correctly.

I have the exact same problem in version 8.4 - it would be great if this can be fixed in a soon released 8.4.1.
the problem is not in 8.3.1 though.

thank you!

Just seen exactly the same thing happens with JPG images but it's actually applied that way as well :(

It seems to be that there was a regression in 8.4 where for some reason it doesn't seem to respect the EXIF orientation field when it previews images like it used to in 8.3.1, as such when it applies a preset with any sort of brush or radial in it then it gets squished with the wrong orientation.

Hi,

I'm using Lightroom Classic 8.4 with Windows 10, and I'm noticing some weird things related to the preview for presets containing a radial filter, specially when working with portrait-orientation images.

1) If I create a top-left radial filter from a portrait image, then when hovering over it in the Presets panel, the preview will show it on the opposite side (right). But when applying it and moving the cursor away from the preset, it will stay in the right place.

2) If I try to apply the same preset to a landscape image, then both the preview and the applied filter will be on the opposite side.

3) If I create a top-left radial filter from a landscape image, and I choose a portrait image, the preview will be correct as I hover over the preset, but as soon as I click to apply it *and* move away from the presets panel, the real result will be upside-down in the image (it will be bottom-left).

Maybe the fact that presets created on landscape image work the opposite on portrait images is normal (I don't think it should be, though), but I think it's definitely not ok that the preview when hovering doesn't match what you are really getting.

This is a little complicated to understand (all this landscape-portrait-top-left-etc. thing sounds confusing), but if you watch the following video (see below) I think you'll get it (in the video I only show (1) and (2), but you can try (3) by yourselves). The short version is that something seems to be wrong when showing the preview for presets with radial filters on images in portrait orientation.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Lightroom Classic: Presets not sticking and changing.

Lightroom Classic CC V9.. on iMac using OS Mojave.

Some of my downloaded / purchased presets on the left hand panel (in DEVELOP module) are a bit funny. When I hover over them to preview them, they change the image, as you would expect.... but when I click to select the preset the image changes again and now it doesn't look like it did when I was hovering before selecting.. It seems to be with presets that have either radial filters or graduated filters in them. The radial filters shift position and the graduated filters darken. Also there grad dated filters are in a vertical aspect rather than horizontal.

The "native" Lightroom presets are OK.

So to test this I created a colour only adjusted preset and it worked fine. I then downloaded another preset and that worked fine as it had no radial or grad filter in it. 

I then added a grad to this one and saved it but when I apply this altered downloaded preset it did not show the radial filter that I added to it before saving it. 

So I think that we can say that it's a problem with any preset that has either a radial or graduated filter in it that are not PREVIEWING correctly. 



I then created a preset with a radial filter in the top left and bottom right hand corners. 

When I hover over this it shows the radial filters in the opposite corners but when I select it the image changed to the way that it was created . 

So it's the preview which I get when hovering over the presets with radial or graduated filters in them that are definitely showing incorrectly on the image.
