Learning LR inside & out for 9 months now and out and L O V E it! Here's what I'd add: 1) develop mod-- preview dimensions of actual image size instead of 4:1 in navigator, I'd like input 18x24. 2) print module-loving for making layouts: want the ability to add text more easily to designs i create rather than going thru the watermark which has a lot of limitations. 3) develop mod: previews of presets on full screen not just navigator window 4) ability to create preset options in print module for the 'print job'---so i don't have to enter specific parameters i'm using frequently. can i just say i L O V E LR again??!!! and Rob Sylvan over at NAPP who helps me trouble shoot several shoot all the time!!! NAPP is awesome!!

There is no actual image size until export. That's why it's a ratio.

yes, guess i'm hoping i could set the parameters for a dimension and then see it on screen at that size....

thought of another feature i'd add: ability to desaturate/saturate a color existing in the image locally rather than just globally... ;)

You can use local adjustment brush or TAT for local de-saturation.

In addition to saturation/desaturation using local adjustment, you can also change color by colorizing - hint: use 2 or 3 "coats" if necessary (using different colors).

There's a related request to make HSL tool available locally, as well as an "*all* adjustments local" 'Idea' - maybe go vote on these.

Jennifer, consider breaking your 'Ideas' up. This forum is designed to tackle one at a time.

If you like you can vote on the "HSL adjustment brush feature request".

I personally think that adding better distraction removal support is more urgent, but everyone's mileage varies.
