We could really use improved visibility for the histogram in the curves panel. Right now the dark-on-dark color scheme is so low contrast it's virtually impossible to see.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled LIGHTROOM - Color change to tone curve RGB channels.

I would like to request a change to the colour intensity of the RGB tone curve channels, they are not bright enough. They should be as bright as the curves in the histogram panel. Photoshop tone curve RGB colours are fine, why can't the same UI be used in Lightroom?

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Curves window histogram visibility.

The curves window needs better contrast between the histogram and the background -- it can be tough to see where the histogram ends when adjusting the endpoints.

Yes they read everything, but they can't reply to every thread.

Only 4 people have voted on this request in more than 2 years, so drumming up support from other users would add weight to this request.

You can make that 5 requests and most of my photographer friends from NY to FL, San Francisco and Hawaii agree with me. It's an obvious defect so why not fix it?

It shouldn't depend on how many people make the effort to wade through your giant website in order to find the right page to lodge a complaint.

Make your product better and fix it!

It's been a few decades since I took Computer Science in College and was programing in everything from Basic, C, Cobol, Fortran, Forth (my personal favorite), Pascal, machine language and on and on but it shouldn't be that hard to do to raise luminance/saturation levels to match the regular Histogram panel.

Why make it look so different than the Histogram panel in Lightroom and Photoshop in the first place?

Thank you,
Robert J.
