Just like the title suggest on my Lightroom only has the Tone Curve that allows me to control like the (b/w). But I cant seem to locate the individual RBG channels. When watching youtube videos I see on their lightroom below the graph they can change the channel but for mine it says Point Curve: Linear, Medium Constract or Strong Contrast. I really hope to find this because I cant color grade at the best level. I dont understand why its not in my lightroom thank you.

Click the icon in the lower right hand corner of the Tone Curve section to go to the screen that has the RGB option.

I have lightroom classic version 10.4 and I don't have the Point Curve option.  My tone curve editing tool is stuck on "region".  Is there a way I can change this?

If clicking on the grey circle doesn't change to an editable curve:

then try resetting LR's preferences:
https://www.lightroomqueen.com/articles-page/how-do-i-reset-lightrooms-preferences/

 

LR sometimes soils its preferences file, and resetting it can fix all sorts of wonky behavior. That article explains how to restore the old preferences if resetting doesn't help.

Hi!

I cannot see the Channel: RGB dropdown menu at all.

What can be wrong?

Your answer is in the "Correct Answer"-  L-Click the mouse cursor on the ICON in the lower right corner of the panel.

The panel changes to allow you to use points on the curve, and select from the - Channel: RGB drop-down menu for the individual RGB channels.

The Tone Curve has changed since this (old) thread was posted. To change the overall and individual RGB curves, click on one of the circles:

Thank you so much for your reply.🙏🏼  Youtube videos, and google searches only cater to old versions. Do you know if there is anywhere I can read/ watch tutorial for this version?

Click on the 'Point Curve' white circle.
