Crop seems to change LR settings
« on: January 07, 2013, 05:27:32 PM »
I do not know if this issue is located within Lightroom (4.3) or Photo Mechanic 5. Here is what happens:

  • RAW files (Nikon D700/D800) are imported into a Lightroom catalog.
  • Images are cropped in Photo Mechanic 5
  • Metadata is "read from files" in Lightroom
  • Tone Curve in Lightroom, which was originally set to "Medium Contrast" for these RAW files through Defaults, is now re-set to "Linear"
If the RAW files are first cropped in PM and then imported into LR, the Tone Curve stays at "Medium Contrast" as set by the Default.

Attach your XMP sidecar files before and after the crop is added in PM5.  Use the 'Attachments and other options' link when you're composing your reply to this message and there you'll be able to upload your files.
