Hi all!

Is anyone else having this problem;

 

Usully I can hit the 'q' key on my Mac in Lightroom Classic CC, and it toggles the heal/clone tool on off so i can use it. But tonight, it just started to toggle the photo into black and white (still being able to use clone/heal, but i can't actually see where needs to be edited). It's driving me crazy, and making it impossible to work quickly. Did I accidentally do something somehow?! Been using this way for years. Argh!!

 

Would love to know if any of ya'll; have any ideas. Thanks! xx

Is this a bug?!

No, Not at all. It is the great feature to 'Visualize' sensor dust spot more easily.

It is toggled on/off by the [A] key, or you can tick/un-tick the 'Visualize box on the lower Tool Bar. (Press [T] if you do not see the Toolbar)

And the Slider changes the 'strength' of the contrast in the B&W visualize view.

Oh wow! You absolute legend! Thank you so much for this and the explanation. You just majorly schooled me, and indeed that is a great feature, and could have used it in the past!

 

My finger must have slipped on the A while cloning/healing!

 

So pleased to have gotten your reply, thanks a million! xx
