I frequently used the histogram slider that was available in Lightroom 6 as my first adjustment to rid my shots of clipping highlights and shadows. Since switching over to Lightroom CC I cannot figure out how to accomplish this. was this feature dropped?

Can you be more specific? What 'histogram slider' are you talking about?

When in the development board and a histogram is on the upper left upper right column correct if you put the cursor on the histogram you get a indicator that you can move it right or left to eliminate clipping in either the Shadow and or highlight area. .

OK, that is just another (and indeed neat) way of moving the Tone sliders. Lightroom CC does not have that option, so you'll have to move the sliders themselves.

Rats.....It is a really quick way to correct clipping when great white egrets are your subjects.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Lightroom CC: Add clipping adjustments in Histogram.

I frequently used the histogram adjustment tool that is available in LR 6 as my initial adjustment to rid my shots of clipping , especially in the highlights, to get detail. In LR 6 develop mode I could position the cursor in the histogram and moving it side-to-side could reduce the clipping and get detail. The same is true of the shadow side of the histogram. this is a great feature and should be incorporated into LR CC.
