This is driving me nuts. All of my presets aren't working properly. I reset all of my settings, etc. When I import photos with a specific preset it doesn't apply it properly. It's like it's applying the old Lightroom algorithm. This is frustrating.
PLUS, it doesn't work when I create a brand new preset in this version of Lightroom. I setup a new preset that will apply Auto Settings and when I import it still applies old settings, it seems like it's using the Auto Settings from a few versions of LR ago. It's applying settings on import, but not the correct Auto Settings if that makes sense. All of the other settings, like Clarity, Sharpening, etc still work. Oh, and Auto White Balance doesn't work on import at all anymore and hasn't since the update before this most recent one.
In the past, what 'fixed' it for me was to go to the user presets file and open one of the presets with Lightroom (right click, open with Lightroom) and then it worked. However, that doesn't work anymore. I've even uninstalled the program and reinstalled it, still no luck.
The settings it's using are more overexposed than the new ones. So, I import the photos, then I need to go to each photo and click Auto Settings one by one and it will adjust the exposure, etc. I'm dealing with thousands of photos per import, so that's a nightmare.
