Hi there,

I love using Lightroom to edit my photos and it has been my go to ever since I started to photograph. With every update LR seems to get better and better, thanks to the team for always improving LR.

I have a suggestion in regards to the Tone Curve tool. I love how I can hover over my presets and see the effect on the image but I was wondering if there are any plans in the future to possibly do the same for the Tone Curves, as I have many of them and its quite cumbersome to have to click each-one to see the effects. 

Also, would it be possible to also allows us more control on the HSL/Tone Tab? For example (holding) Option and sliding the sliders could allows us to see the affected areas of colors? Showing us the color range that will be affected?

Many thanks,

Emmanuel

How about saving your tone curves as normal Develop presets instead of tone curve presets? That should allow you to get the result you want.

Victoria's suggestion is a good one - especially since the Lightroom Ecosystem clients do not allow for using Camera Raw/Lightroom Classic Saved Tone Curves.
