Finer adjustment of exposure etc
« on: August 19, 2023, 07:28:42 pm »

I used to do exposure and the other such as level adjustment by placing cursor on the dot in the sliver and rotate scroll wheel rather than moving the slider as I can not move it in a fine amount but I found yesterday my old way does not work any longer .
Can anyone help?

You mean adjusting brightness?
There is nothing in LR (despite the name) that adjusts exposure.
Can you show a screen capture of what you're referring to?

Nonsense. There's a slider called 'Exposure'

Quite what the OP means by "the dot in the sliver and rotate scroll wheel"  is less clear.

Try reading (more slowly) what I wrote: There is nothing in LR (despite the name) that adjusts exposure.
Again, despite the name, the slider has NOTHING to do with exposure. Exposure only takes place at capture.

If you stopped being so pompous and unhelpful you might actually read the OP's post and realise he's asking about how to adjust a slider called 'Exposure'.

Cue another stupid quote from your book of quotations because you've run of anything original or useful to say.

Your inability to read the OP's question and my answer while also not answering his question isn't surprising I realize ("realise") . 😖

I never liked the "click on the handle and scroll wheel method."  But I do have three recommendations for fine adjustments.  First, drag the whole develop panel as far out as you can from the left side.  It makes it wider, and therefore the "throw" distance of the sliders is greater allowing a little better granularity.  Second, if you hold down the shift key while "operating the slider handle" it puts it in "slow movement mode" for much finer control.  Third (and best once I'm close) I "click" the number box to the right of any given slider to "select" it.  Then I can use the up and down arrow keys on my keyboard to make very fine adjustments.  Hit the enter key when done and it "sets" the value in the box and unselects it.

Not a 'feature' I've ever used, or even heard of before, and having tried it I find it horribly clumsy. However for the OP it DOES still work, at least here on my system;
Win 10
LR 12.4
Std Microsoft mouse and driver.
