Hey there, folks! I've been working on colouring correcting this image to match a different background. However, while in the Curves Properties menu, whenever I press and hold ALT and click on Auto for more options, nothing happens. I know there's a dialogue box that's supposed to pop up that includes Enhance Monochromatic Contrast, Find Dark and Light Colours, etc. I've checked to see if I have the newest version, my ALT key works, and I've restarted both my computer and the Photoshop app. Anyone have any suggestions on how to fix this issue?

Alt-clicking the Auto button is a shortcut, which means it’s not the only way to open the Auto Color Correction Options dialog box. The long (non-shortcut) way is to choose Auto Options from the Curves Properties panel menu as shown below. Does that method work?

If using the panel menu works, then at least the feature works and now you have to figure out why Alt-click isn’t working. For example, maybe there is a process on the computer (such as a shortcut or macro utility) intercepting the Alt key?

 

If neither way opens the Auto Color Correction dialog box, something else is wrong.
