Possible bug: Lightroom 5.7 now adjusts the brightness after cloning as a white backdrop. Ideas?

I just found this: work on a larger series of images, shot on a white background.

It is a mobile facility so sometimes the backdrop covers the whole frame.

So after I do my settings to my select I use the spot removal tool to clone in some parts of the background if necessary...

So far so good. But Lightroom then auto adjusts the brightness and contrast of...

No idea what's going on... Restart LR and the computer did not any changes.

I'm on a Mac 10.10.3





The beach of the adjusted values of highlights, shadows, whites, blacks, clarity (at least) all depend on image content so your cloning on a dark area left replaces the range of values of the image and changes as well as cursors.

The difference is very accentuated between the cloned image and uncloned if clarity is equal to 0 and black to-100 with all the remains the same that the DNG downloaded, where all parameters are identical between the two images and the background being cloned to white is the only difference in the parameters and settings, so the Visual difference is how LR applied 5 toning of the sliders.

The problem is that unwanted background on the left is darker than the subject so it's existence or not determines what means 'black '.  It cloning of 'Black' changes that she will fix the details of the subject and affects how the highlights, shadows, white, black and clarity sliders work.

I think that toning using tone instead of these 5 sliders below curve contrast will not have this problem and I think that cropping away rather than cloning in the background, then using the 5 sliders will not the problem.

The essential is that cloning apparently happens before you tone up in the pipeline of the image and how these 5 sliders work is designed so that you will see this difference and is not a bug.


For the reference of someone else reading this, here's the default settings has been made in the two DNG as downloaded before changing Black =-100 and clarity = 0 for the side-by-side, supra.

  • Cannot adjust the brightness after installing Windows 10

    Hello. I have a Dell XPS 15 L521X.   Recently updated to Windows 10 and I can adjust is no longer my brightness upwards or downwards.

    Now the screen is quite low.  I'd say about 30-40% brightness.  10 widows I found about 5 different places to adjust your brightness and I made sure all of them have been set to 100%.  I have my power plan to high performance and I went into advanced settings and turned off Adaptive brightness and made sure that the brightness of the screen the two Dim brightness set to 100% on battery & are plugged.  Rebooted and still dim.

    My question is, on Dell laptops, Windows has full access to the brightness control?  Or Dell replaces Windows with their software customized for the display settings?   When I bought this laptop in 2012, the software, at the time, was called Dell QuickSet.  What is the responsible application of brightness of the screen control?  And is it necessary?

    Thank you


    I am also having this same problem. My brightness has been set at max after update and it hurts my eyes. I did it... Control Panel > Device Manager > graphics cards > Intel HD Graphics 4000 > pilot > Update Driver > Browse my computer > let me pick. Choose Microsoft Basic graphics card.

    After doing this, my problem was solved, and I was able to adjust the brightness of my screen again. BUT if you play games on your laptop, it will cause display problems in your game.

  • Cannot adjust the brightness after display driver update on Satellite L855-118


    I just bought a SATELLITE L855-118, with ATI graphics card today, it was between this and another of them, but I know that you have problems updating graphics drivers on a portable Sony.

    I did a restore point.

    So I uninstalled the ATI catalyst graphics card and then did a sweeper driver and rebooted and then installed catalyst 12.6, installed fine, but my screen went to the maximum brightness and I can't adjust, BRIGHTNESS osd is displayed but the brightness of the screen does not change.

    So I used my restore point.

    This time I crushed the catalyst 8.9 with 12.6 stock, still cannot adjust the brightness.

    Someone knows how to solve this problem.

    Is it possible to adjust the brightness of my screen?  If so, how?

    If it's a desktop monitor, there should be buttons on the monitor to do this. I found this a useful tool, you can set a different brightness for the display of day and night. However, you can also just use it to quickly adjust the brightness at any time.

  • Cannot adjust the brightness of the screen with the keys Fn on new L540 (8.1 x 64)

    Hello everyone. I just bought a new L540 with 8.1 of Windows x 64 on it and have met a problem that I see is apparently common. While my other Fn keys work as expected, I can't adjust the brightness of the screen with them. By pressing the buttons just does nothing and the laptop is in running at full brightness at any time, even on the battery. I installed the latest driver for managing power and from what I can tell, there is no version of the management software supply for something newer than Windows 7. I also installed the latest driver for the shortcut key (in fact, I installed all the latest drivers for this machine.) I read in another thread that this may be caused by the latest driver from Intel's HD graphics card but in fact, I can not install even this driver (said my system is not supported) so I always use the latest version of the driver Lenovo provided.

    Can someone please help with this? I want to be able to quickly adjust the brightness of the screen when it is on battery, but I can't do it right now. Thank you!

    I have the same problem with my L540. It started with the BIOS update to version 1.65. Because I have not found a solution, I went back to BIOS version 1.64, where all the brightness options are there and are working properly.

    You can download older versions. When on the page with the new drivers (http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.page?DocID=DS037285) go to BIOS driver 1.65, then choose "learn more." At the end of the next page, you will see all the old versions.

    You can install the version 1.64, you should choose the Option "Secure RollBack prévention" in the BIOS: restart the computer. When you see the option "to interrupt normal startup, press enter", press ENTER. Once more, press ENTER. Press F1 to enter BIOS Setup utility. Click on 'Security'-> then "update Bios UEFI Option'-> then"set RollBack prevention. " Change this option to "disabled". Press F10 to save the configuration changes and exit.

    After you restart Windows, you can install BIOS 1.64.

    Another possibility is to wait for the next version of BIOS...

  • How to adjust the brightness in the module book

    I have created a book with photos 75 or so using Lightroom 5.3. Everything is ok and everything done - but I forgot that my screen is dressed so that I can see things clearly. On simple images, I increase the brightness and contrast in the print module before saving on a single file to print. I don't want to do cela for all 75 images at a time. is it possible to adjust the brightness/contrast in the book module type of a lot?

    If not, which includes print adjustment equal to in the develop module? For example, I found through tests, if I go with + 67 brightness and contrast + 51 in the print module, it compensates for any photo that I developed with my screen dressed in the develop module.

  • Cannot adjust the brightness of the screen after Windows 8.1 update

  • Impossible to add an external monitor or adjust the brightness of the screen: Pavilion dv7-4031TX (Windows 7)


    I recently replaced both hard drives of HDD2K12, which meant I had to re-enstall Windows 7. Since that time, I have no options more in using an external monitor or even the brightness of the screen. The computer does not recognize the monitor when I Plug and all my drivers are up to date.

    Can you make suggestions that could help to solve these two problems?

    Kind regards


    Thanks to find the links but I could not find the drivers I need for a Pavilion dv7-4031TX.

    However I finally managed to fix the problem. Let me summarize what has been my problem.

    (1) I could not adjust the brightness of the screen by using the function keys f2 and f3.

    (2) I couldn't find the brightness slider if it was generally... i.e. (control Panel\Hardware and Options of Sound\Power)

    (3) my laptop would not recognize an external monitor.

    How I solved the problem:

  • Tab 2 A8-50 cannot adjust the brightness

    I just got my tab 2 A9-50 yesterday. I ran the update as soon as I started my Tablet for the first time. Software version: 150619-50F-A8. I had an Android tablet, so I know how to adjust the brightness. However, this tablet, brightness is stuck in automatic mode. I can move the cursor of HRT, but it now has the effect.

    Looks like something is overridingthe.

    Not the end of the world, I guess, but I would like when I need it.

    It looks like the soft Twilight. After setting the brightness in this app a bit, screen dimming controls in the rest of Android has started working. I used this app on other devices, but I never noticed this happening before.

    Problem solved I guess.

    There are two Intel driver links to the choices on your laptop support page.

    I explored the folder of the driver of this driver file to support your laptop and driver page, and it is suitable to use driver.

    This package provides the driver that allows graphics Intel high definition (HD) in the notebook models that are running an operating system supported. If the video output high-definition multimedia interface (HDMI) is supported, this package also installs the HDMI Audio Driver.

    File name: sp69589.exe

    The hardware ID for the Intel graphics card in your laptop must be one of these...

    ;    Windows 8.1 install

    % iVLVGMT0% = iVLV2M_w81, PCI VEN_8086 & DEV_0F31 & SUBSYS_220F103C
    % iVLVGMT0% = iVLV2M_w81, PCI VEN_8086 & DEV_0F31 & SUBSYS_2213103C
    % iVLVGMT0% = iVLV2M_w81, PCI VEN_8086 & DEV_0F31 & SUBSYS_2210103C
    % iVLVGMT0% = iVLV2M_w81, PCI VEN_8086 & DEV_0F31 & SUBSYS_2214103C

    You should see a device from Intel HD graphics instead of the graphics card base of Microsoft, and unless you can get the graphics driver to install you will not be able to adjust the brightness of the screen.

    Is the above driver do not install the Intel graphics card automatically, try to install the driver manually by navigating to the folder of the driver that is created after running the above file.

    Confirm that the hardware for the Intel graphics card ID matches one of the above since the driver installation information file that I posted.

    To find the ID of the hardware, Device Manager, click the graphics card Microsoft Basic.

    Then click on the Details tab in the upper part of the window Microsoft Basic graphics card.

    Now you should see a drop-down list of property and it is set by default to the Description of the unit.

    On this list and select the 3rd point (Hardware ID).

    Confirm that the hardware ID, you see there is one of those listed that I posted.
