Lightroom? Target color/luminance

I have a big problem with white balance. Every time I set a perfect white balance, changing the vibrance/saturation screws it up. So, is it possible to implement a target point where the colors will be fixed no matter what settings you made. (or luminance [cause' I always end up changing the exposure again every time I apply highlight/shadow recovery])

The parameter to change the target points' (take note: points, which means I suggest that we could choose more than one target point) is white balance for color and exposure for luminance.

I think my post is slightly confusing. If you don't understand my point, ask me in a more detailed way and I will gladly answer you.

You want to be able to define a pixel-position (target point) that is used to continuously re-compute the WB value of the image when toning and other parameters are changed, right?

When you increase the saturation significantly, and eye-dropper the same point as originally used to set the WB, do you see significant changes in WB?

Hi Jinn,

I've never experienced white balance being changed by saturation, although vibrance certainly boosts cool colors more than warm, especially blue.

I realize this may not address your core issue, but I'm not Adobe...


That's it for now,
