P: Copy/Paste and Sync Features causing photo to haze/gray out after updating LrC

I just updated my LrC to v 12.4 this morning and now when I try to copy/paste settings in the develop tab to a new photo, the new photo is hazed out and flat looking. If I reset the settings and put them in manually, it looks correct, so it has to be an issue with the copy/paste. Please help this is slowing down my work flow tremendously.

Hi, In LrC 12.4, the 'Curve' settings in the copy/create preset/synchronise dialog box is not selected by default. Please select the checkbox to include Tone curve settings. This will be a one-time thing, once you select the 'Curve' checkbox, it will stay selected till you uncheck it manually. We will fix this bug. Thanks for reporting this issue.

Show us screen captures. We need to see the original image and its slider positions, and then the image with the copied edits, and its slider positions.

You said that when you click sync, you "made sure all the settings I want are checked off."

 

Perhaps there are some settings you did not check that are causing this? I would suggest that you experiment by checking "All" and seeing if that resolves it. There may be some settings in other sections beyond the "Basic" panel that are contributing to the appearance of your original image.

There is a known issue about the curves settings not being selected when you do a copy settings/select all. I'm merging your post to an existing thread about it. Let us know if it helps. 

Basically, when you select all settings you need to check the curves box manually. This will be fixed in a future update.

I followed your steps and synced my photos and checked my curve boxes but nothing has worked. My photos are still copy and pasting to some grey overlay instead of the preset I've created.

Comapre the edits in your photos

 

LrC doesn't offer this fucntion so the quickest way to do it is to use this Plug-in : Bag-o-goodies - Compare Photo Edits

 

 

LrC doesn't allow to view the setting in a Preset so the quickest way to know them XMP in a text editor and read them.

 

 

Lots of users here would not have had this problem if LrC could copy/sync/preset modified Settings like ACR.

Hello,

I need help. I set the preset on one photo and after copying it to the other photos they become completely different than the original ones. the problem appeared after updating LR and changing the computer. Maybe you have an idea what could be wrong? All the necessary options for synchronization are selected, there are no masks 😞 This makes it very difficult to work 😞 Thank you very much.

 

Best regards,

Sylwia

When you are not copying just save the preset and add the saved preset does it change again?

All of a sudden, when I synchronize edits in Lightroom, they don't all get pasted in the new photo. How do I make this work again?

in the future, to find the best place to post your message, use the list here, https://community.adobe.com/

p.s. i don't think the adobe website, and forums in particular, are easy to navigate, so don't spend a lot of time searching that forum list. do your best and we'll move the post if it helps you get responses.

Do you use curves? Curves are not selected by default, so check that they are when you copy. See https://community.adobe.com/t5/lightroom-classic-bugs/p-copy-paste-and-sync-features-causing-photo-t...

Hi 

 

I have the same issue and it is not restricted only to the Copy / Paste Settings function, this happens also if I use the Sync Settings function. This started happening with the last version, here are the steps I followed:

 

  1. Created 2 virtual copies of an image.
  2. Modified a virtual copy to my liking
  3. Used "Sync Settings" in the library to copy all the settings to the second virtual copy and the colors look different. 

 

Screenshot 2023-07-19 122742.jpg

 

I checked all the parameters between the two images and all are the same. Crop, healing, masks and all the other settings appear fine, but the colors look different.

 

In the screenshot, the image on the left is the one I modified, the image on the right is the vitual copy I "Synced Settings" to.

 

I also noticed a new behavior for the preset "Adaptive Portrait -  Polished Portrait" it completely changes the "HSL / Color" Module values, where other "Adaptive Portrait" filters create the masks and apply the changes only to the masks.

@Armagonz if the settings are identical then there is no difference.

 

To further verify export VC 3 and VC as TIFFS in photoshop (same color space)

 Put one image above the other and then use Difference blend mode.

 

No difference should appear.

Lightroom Classic just updated to the 12.4 version on my MacOS Monterey 12.6.7. I can no longer copy and paste and get the same resutls on the photo... it seems like it might be copying and pasting evrything except the preset. Which is extremely unhandy because now i have to individually edit each picture.

Thank you for the suggestion but I still have not been able to figure this out...

 

I tried comparing them in Photoshop as suggested, when using the difference blending mode the outcome was black. Here are the two images and it is quite clear that the colors are different between them. They appear different in LR, in PS and in any export I do from LR.

I have similar issue, when I copy settings from one picture to another, the colors look different; selecting the "Curve" settings does not solve it.

 

This started happening with the last version, LrC 12.4 . I initially thought it was because I was working with different pictures of the same session, so I decided to try with virtual copies to ensure that it was exactly the same file and it was not me doing something wrong. Here are the steps I followed:

 

  1. Created 2 virtual copies of an image.
  2. Modified a virtual copy to my liking
  3. Used "Sync Settings" in the library and selected "Check All" to copy all the settings to the second virtual copy, all setting copied correctly but the colors look different.

 

Here are my settings for copying the settings:

Screenshot 00.jpg

 

Here are the exports of the two virtual copies after copying all of the settings:

_DSC5651-VC1.png

_DSC5651-VC2.png

 

Here are screenshots of the settings for both virtual copies to confirm they have exactly the same settings:

Screenshot 01.jpgScreenshot 02.jpgScreenshot 03.jpg

 

Even though both VCs have exactly the same settings, the histograms look a little different, this is telling me that some values at not being applied correctly

Screenshot 04.jpg

 

Any suggestions other than reset the preference file?

Please compare the edits using this Plug-in: http://regex.info/blog/lightroom-goodies/bag-o-goodies#compare-photo-edits.

 

If you could share that file, even privately, we and Adobe could test the issue.

I tried using the suggested plug-in and it says that the only difference is the "Camera Profile": 

 

Screenshot 05.jpg

 

When looking at the details in the develop module both have the same Profile "Adobe Portrait" in the same amount. I have tried changing it to another profile and back to Adobe Portrait, but the issue persists, the colors still look different.
