Lightroom: Ability to move Adjustment Brush Pins

One problem I have when not using a tripod is that the place where I have used an adjustment brush has moved a little bit in each successive picture. It would be nice to be able to click the pin and simply move that point of adjustment. You can do it with the graduated filter, why not the adjustment brush?

I've never understood that this feature wasn't implemented after the adjustment brush was introduced, and I've been waiting for it ever since. But what really baffles me is that features like this one (or being able to click-shift click to draw lines, or the ability to edit the mask with a brush, or add color samplers, etc. etc. etc.) are now available in Camera raw... and not in Lightroom!!! I find it an inconsistent approach to what Lightroom is supposed to be, and in fact it makes ACR and LR look much different that they really are (as if it wasn't enough with the interface differences, not to mention a whole different set of keyboard shortcuts). I don't really understand your product policy in this regard - it's as if the ACR and LR teams aren't talking to each other.

So far I've sticked to LR because I hope these inconsistencies that have grown over time will eventually be ironed up in the next major release of LR... but otherwise I'll consider abandoning LR and sticking to ACR and Bridge. It would be a tough call because some LR capabilities are very important to me, but raw developping comes first in any photographer's list, and it annoys me to think that so many great features are already there (in the ACR engine beneath LR interface), but LR engineers won't let me use them for reasons that are beyond me.

So please, introduce the ability to move adjustment brush pins, and if possible, also bring to LR the other improvements that were implemented in ACR but haven't made it into LR so far. Thanks.

Carlos, I hear and understand your frustration. To be clear, our intention is to bring all of the recent Camera Raw imaging developments to Lightroom as well. But these will need to wait for a major Lightroom release version.

Thanks Eric for your reply, and of course very happy now to see all of the above (the features that were added in acr 8.5) implemented in LR CC!!!! IT'S GREAT!

Thanks again for your patience, Carlos. I know it was frustrating to wait, but glad the features like Filter Brush finally made it to Lr CC and that you can use them.

Enjoy,
Eric
