I've been using lightroom for just over a year now. However, recently I was struck with this huge issue. After I have edited my imaged the settings don't save when I export. It's difficult to pin-point a lot of settings which aren't saving but the most obvious is the 'Sharpening' tool.
I've read many articles and have:
- refreshed my preferences
- deleted my whole catalogue
- deleted, uninstalled and re-installed.
- played with all the export settings.
But, nothing yet has solved the problem. I've contacted Adobe and they couldn't help. They just said I have to wait till the next version is released.
I also downloaded and tried editing images on 'Capture One'. But when I export the images to my desktop I have the same problem.
Can anyone help?
I've tried drastically changing the images. And a lot of the settings stick. For example - I drastically changed the colour temperature. Leaving the Image very blue.
When I exported the image the settings saved.
However, as mentioned in my initial question - The main problem is the sharpness tool. But it's difficult to see exactly what saves and doesn't.
The reason I ask is the Develop module Fit view is not completely accurate when high sharpening and noise reduction settings are used. What kind of settings are applied?
So I have now attached all examples below.
Development result (as desired).
2 x Compare view images from the library.
I dont really see how this is useful because you can't see the changes. Whenever I switch from the development module the settings I have applied disappear. Exactly the same result is visible when I export.
Anyway, let me know your thoughts.
The result I want as seen in the Development module
Screen Shot of 'Compare View in Library' (Tiff file on the left)
Screen Shot of 'Compare View in Library'(tiff file on the left)
You need to zoom into 1:1 in Develop to judge sharpening. If you need to judge sharpening on the whole photo at once, the closest you'll get is to zoom into 1:1 in Library (so it renders a full size JPEG preview) and then zoom out again, still in Library.
However, when in zoom in at 1:1 ratio and then switch from different modules you can't see a difference.
The sharpness appears to be the same.
But once I zoom out again in library/ exported image, the overall image is clearly softer.
Maybe it is a combination of contrasting settings as well.
But the only way to describe the problem is that it clearly looks softer.
Any more ideas?
