Being a long time LR user (I have been using it since the first Beta 3, the first version you run on Widows), I am obviously biased.
I agree, and understand.
But I have some clear reservations.
One is that the user interface seems to have a lot of perks.
Well, they all do, don't they?
Why cannot I see the image I just imported?
Explain, how did you import, and where are you looking (thumbnails in the filmstrip?)
Why does it set some odd light balance? I am right now shooting a P45+, but my images default to something sane in Lightroom. Some new feature in 7.1.3, I think it worked better before?
Odd light balance?
Just an example, I import my P45+ image into Lightroom and it uses 6050 K Tint +18. Image looks good.C1 it defaults to 4284K and 1.6. It says "shot" which I assume it means it is using white balance from the P45.
Seems normal, unless you have another preset selected in e.g. a default style.
Klicking on shot it changes to 5797 -2.6. Grass is yellowish.
Apparently you shot it with a White Balance that was not optimal for that image. Or did you shoot it with a completely different Kelvin? Or do you think that the Kelvin value will be identical with LR (it won't, different color engine, CCT is not a unique value)?
If I double klick on "tint" it also changes "Kelvin".
Double click on tint? Why? Or are you selecting
the slider, or the text box? On my system, selecting the tint doesn't change the Kelvin, unless I accidentally scroll my mouse wheel while hovering the mouse pointer over that
