Lightroom / Camera Raw: Simple Hue Adjustment for shifting all colors

HSL is great but sometimes I want to shift all colors in a picture (known from photoshop). A simple and "global" Hue adjustment slider would be helpful.

the Hue slider for big and general shifts HSL for further refinement.
The feature should also be availiable for local adjustments (i.e. brush, gradient, spot)

What do you think?

How would that differ from simply changing the white balance and/or camera calibration sliders?

Can you not do it using split toning? Have you tried RGB curves?

(obviously those can't be used in locals, except for the white balance I mean)

Dayyym I tried so and I cannot in any way. Calibration is again subsetted.

The more I try the more definitive this request becomes. Lightroom needs one big hue slider to spin the whole gamut around. Probably right into treatment under saturation and vibrance.

And yes, you're right. But Feature requests is the place for thinking about future, right? ;-)

So what about backing me up on this one?

Right.

I've never found the need for it, nor the desire, yet. Thus the reasons for my questions... - If you *can* shift hues now, using the existing toolset, then it's a matter of learning how (even if not a single slider). If you *can't* then it's a whole different story...

In other words, I think users should have complete control over color. So, in spirit, I agree with your request. However, I'm not convinced a hue-slider is the best way to do it. Of course I'm not the one who needs convincing (Adobe is), still if I'm having questions, others probably are too...

Can you do what you want, now, by moving *all* of the HSL hue sliders?

Cheers,
Rob

Thanks. No - there seems to be big gaps between the different colors.
But moving these excessively opened up new perspectives in recoloring. At least ;-)

I mean - I can open it in PS or whatever but that seems pure overkill xD

Can it be done using a custom camera calibration profile created using DNG Profile Editor?

If you can figure out how to do it, by *any* means, in Lightroom, using existing toolset, then you'll know how to do it, and/or if complicated, it could be rolled into a custom (possibly intelligent) preset in Gazoo.

(even if that means cloning the camera profile, adjusting the mapping tables, and re-writing, thus requiring a Lr restart to incorporate - which may be too klunky to be practical, still: I'm brainstorming here - trying to assess options...)

If it can't be done, at all, period, in Lightroom, then I'll stop trying to figure out how to automate it, and you can stop being bothered by my questions ;-}

I hug you for that one :-)

I stop investigation here due to overkillfear. Opening photoshop for that step seems less magic.

Your feature request / Idea is clear. And if you want to leave it at that, I'll stop hounding. I just can't help but be curious if there is a way to do it before feature request is granted...

Love your passionate curiousity. Bed is calling - will continue spreading the idea tomorrow.
