Tone Curve in the new Lightroom CC

Hello friends!

Can anyone tell me where can I find the Tone Curve in the new Lightroom CC?

I've searched for it in all the corners of the new Lightroom CC and could't find anything.

Strange is that there are Presets which use the Tone Curve for creating the Flat effect or Matte effect, but there's no option to do it manually or to adjust that effect.

If the new Lightroom CC doesn't have this tool, well, I rather prefer the old version of Lightroom. It's true, the new version is more simple, easy to work with it, new and a nice look, but less options for editing? I hope not and if it's so, I really hope Adobe won't remove the Classic version.

Best regards!

There's not a UI for it quite yet, but all the code is there behind the scenes and it's in the mobile apps, so I don't think it'll be long.

There is no tone curve in Lightroom CC. Lightroom CC is a completely new editing tool that only has a fraction of the features of the old Lightroom which is now named "Lightroom Classic". It is more akin to a port of the mobile (iOS/Android) version of Lightroom to the Desktop than it is to Lightroom. The only reason to move to Lightroom CC is if you really want all your images to be stored in the cloud instead of on local disks and that is more important than losing all the other features (printing, syncing develop settings to more than one image at a time, tone curves, nested keywords, slideshows, etc.).

I definitely prefer the old Lightroom, but mine automatically updated! Is there any way to get back to the old lightroom with Camera Calibration as I can't get my editing style with the new update! Please help!

Your old Lightroom should still be installed. You can find it most easily in the creative cloud app. Scroll until you see Lightroom Classic CC. You can update it there too to the latest version which is very close to the old version but faster and doesn't store everything in the cloud.

It doesn't have a completely hands free update mechanism, but you most likely hit the Update button next to Lightroom CC title in the CC app, without realizing they'd renamed the "old" one. Go to the CC app and hit Install or Update next to the Lightroom Classic app instead.

Charz14, check the picture. If you have the Adobe Creative Cloud app, scroll down the list and look for the Adobe Lightroom Classic and hit Install button or update. To manually check for an update, hit the 3 dots button besides your profile picture and then Check for App Updates. You can also uninstall the new Lightroom CC if you don't want it and keep only the old version, now named Lightroom Classic. The situation is available for both Mac OS and Windows.

Best regards!

Um... the mobile version had tone curve. I don't know how to reproduce any of my older presets without it.

Are you aware that what USED to be Lightroom CC is now Lightroom Classic CC? Lightroom CC is NOW a new program aimed at those who want all of their image files to be cloud-based. It is a version 1 program. It will evolve and grow with time. But if you want all the features that you are accustomed to you might consider using Lightroom Classic CC and just experimenting with the new Lightroom CC.

I really don't understand why Adobe doesn't use curves anymore.

I also don't understand why there are curves on the Mobile App - ANDDD why i need to pay for that extra.

WTH!!!

You don't have to pay extra. The mobile apps are free, and the premium features are included with your subscription.

Thanks a lot for your answers.

1. How do I get rid of the subscriptions for the mobile app and why didn't it recognize me?

When I was using the free version it wouldn't allow me to use the brush for example, so I had to "rent" it.

2. About when will there be curves in Lightroom CC desktop version?

3. The name is Photoshop Lightroom CC actually, but if I click "open in Photoshop" when working in Lightroom,  it won't do it. What do I need to change?

Thanks for your help.

You may be signed into the mobile app with a different Adobe ID. That's the most likely suspect. If that doesn't do the trick, contact customer services so they can take a look at your account for you.

Here's Apple's page on cancelling App Store subscriptions: View, change, or cancel your subscriptions - Apple Support

Curves in the desktop app, they haven't preannounced, but I'd expect it to be a high priority since it's already in the mobile apps.

To open in Photoshop, you'd need a subscription that includes Photoshop. There's a few plans, and I can't see which one you've got. Including Photoshop in the name was just a marketing thing done when Lightroom was released 10 years ago, to give it a bit of a leg up (because Photoshop was already a household name).

This tone curve acts like it's soaked in tar. So sluggish all the time with my Canon raws, Fuji raws, PhaseOne Tiffs, etc...Why is this so slow compared to Photoshop or ACR?
