Camera Raw 13.3 Histogram?
« on: June 22, 2021, 02:54:17 am »

What's with the new histogram in Camera Raw 13.3? It shows a green line extending to both ends regardless of exposure. Makes one think the green channel is clipping. I can't find any preference to set it back to "normal".

Sample, same image, CR 13.2 on top, CR 13.3 middle, Photoshop bottom.

I see the same thing.  Looks like someone messed up.  Have you reported it to Adobe?

I checked to see if the GPU made any difference, on vs off but no change (Win 10)

Not messed up; new design.
There is nothing there about exposure either.
Clipping would be shown  if there were a spike and there isn't one. The green line simply 'draws a color for the floor' of the Histogram (one might argue it should be white as seen in Lightroom; I'll recommend that in Pre-Release as indeed, green doesn't make as much sense) but in your example, there is no clipping. Plus, the clipping triangle would 'light up' too if clipping shows.
Move Saturation to -100; that green line is now gray but still exists to show this 'floor' of Histogram.
There is no way to set it 'back to normal', this is the new normal.

Thanks for the explanation. I'd like to meet the focus group they tested that on.

The line, white, exists in LR. I've recommended the color be changed from green. It should not be green; we will see.

Some of us are in this so called 'focus' group (by invite only).

I'm surprised they did not follow your recommendation about the color.

Well I only made the recommendation hours ago. Be patient.
And there is zero guarantee that Adobe will listen to me and the other pre-release (by invite only) member who agreed that the color green should be changed.
