Lightroom 4: Apply Auto mix when converting to black & white not working

  • Updated 6 years ago
I have the preference turned on to apply the Auto mix when images are converted to B&W. When I have a raw image selected and I click on "Black & White" on the treatment section of the Basic panel or select "B&W" on the HSL panel, the black & white mix is still all zeros. If I click the auto button, then I get an auto mix. Is there something I am doing wrong? How can I fix this behavior? Thanks.

I think the images might be analyzed for B/W mix at the time of import. So, if you setting was not set at the time when a particular image has been imported - auto mix will not be set automatically.
