2. And it works much differently on iPad version. The Auto Tone feature should work the same on the both apps.
The Adobe support team are totally useless and can't do anything to help fixing the issue. Never saw so useless support in my life! It can explain why so serious issue exists for several years. I think you should change your support team leaders and rules first because it's the most important reason of all existing issues in your software.
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:
I just want to add some things I noticed with auto tone:
- the problem that auto tone overexposes is much more prominent with the current process than with the previous one
- auto tone works okay with RAW files from Pentax K-x and Pentax K01 (the yellow one), but overexpose nearly all of the RAWs of Olympus OMD E-M1
- when applying a Olympus camera profile instead auf Adobe Standard as profile for the Olympus files, auto tone works much better
Alan: True, Olympus LENS profiles are not necessary. LR can derive this information from the Raw file typically (provided the lens used was supported in this respect, and corresponding instructions written into the Raw file, by the camera).
But as with any other camera, to interpret an Olympus Raw file's contents into a viewable image it is still necessary to base that conversion on one or another CAMERA calibration choice...
either "Adobe Standard", or else some other profile.
That provides a tonal and hue baseline, which then acts as a starting point for further adjustment.
