I've scanned a bunch of negatives to TIF using ViewScan, imported them into LR 3.4.1 and am using the Develop tools to fix them up.
When using the White Balance Selector in Develop, I get something happening that I have not seen before (I've been using LR since it came out, but mostly on raw files from a DSLR).
Note that I have not opened these TIFs previously with Bridge or Photoshop - only imported them into LR.
"Sometimes" when I click on an image with the White Balance Selector I get the following behaviour:
- WB: changes from "As Shot" to "Custom" (expected)
- The temp and tint do not change (unexpected)
- History shows the words "Camera Raw Settings" (unexpected - should be "White Balance: Custom")
After some experimentation, it seems to always happen when the point I click on has at least two of the RGB percentages in the high 90's - e.g. the point I clicked on just then was 96.3, 98.4, 89.0 and it did the "Camera Raw Settings" described above. If all values are less than high 90's, or only one is in the high 90's I get the familiar white balance adjustment.
e.g. clicking on:
- 74.8, 67.2, 57.3 does the right thing.
- 88.4, 90.3, 83.2 does the right thing
- 99.6, 99.7, 93.7 does the unexpected thing
- 94.5, 96.9, 89.3 does the unexpected thing
Is this something new, or has it done this all the time and I never noticed?
