The return of the Recovery Slider and the removal of ANY inbuilt, automated Recovery.

I want to go back to seeing *exactly* what my *RAW* file looks like.

Any takers?

I really think you don't.

What exactly does a RAW file look like? To me it is just information and showing all of the information that is there is what it "looks" like. It is like making a flat black and white work print, just to evaluate all the info and decided how you want to interpret it.

Precisely! And the introduction of inbuilt Recovery distorts "...all of the information that is there".

Why not get back to seeing exactly where the problem areas are & correcting them as you see fit, and not having Adobe do it for you?

Removing Recovery was a huge error in my view.

Then use PV 2010...

What you think you want is not going to happen. Deal with it.

Quick, automated export to an iOS/Android-based lightroom viewer.

Consumer-ish automated image search/organization (face recognition, scene recognition, sharpness estimation, etc). Anything that lets me spend less time wading through "bad" shots, or tedious manual organizing of "good" shots.

The ability to export, in Excel-compatible format, information about selected photos: File name, title, caption, and pixel dimensions (as cropped) at a minimum. I find this information essential when I am organizing a show or submission.

Peter, look at two plugins - LrTransporter or my own ListView, which does export to Excel.

I'm sure this has been requested many times before, it's CMYK export without the round trip to PS

Presumably optimised for northern European skin tone without suntan.

Usually, in other tools, that feature is associated with a reference palette of skin tones, covering every ethnicity - very much the only way it can work. One important point: there is remarkably little difference in actual COLOR for skin, even across ethnicities (tone is another matter, obviously).

If that really is the case, then it would be great for my line of work and it should definitely feature in LR5.

Hi Jim,

Capture One (Phase One) has a dedicated skin tone tool. There are numerous pro plugins or action sets for photoshop that help calibrate/balance skintones. You can even get some actions and palettes from old KelbyTraining session (look for the classes from Cuerdon - forgot first name), back when they were less mom-and-pop mainstream (a one month subscription is inexpensive, compared to the price of many plugins).

If there are plenty of plug ins for LR - and clearly there are - then this should mean less need to build the functions they provide into LR which means less bloat and doesn't impact on LR functiality?
I agree in general, though you have to be careful to define the line on "bloat". Some plug-ins mean there's less demand for LR to make existing features work properly while others include features that are offered in all comparable programs, for example.

I'd like the ability to display one collection on one monitor and then use the other monitor to browse through other folders and collections.

Yup I often wished for that too Peter. Single pane browsing/file managing is painful at times.

I can't find a way to display the size of the file as one of the options on the thumbnails. When you right click on the text area, it gives you a bunch of options....but no file size!
That would be a easy one to do.


Anyone have a list or know a link to to a list of useful LR plugins?
I don't mean the ones for creating image fx so much (OnOne, Alien, etc)... but other function tools.  I remember one that enabled for me to see PDF files. This was good at first, but I ended up not using it, as it wasn't seamless.
