Ability to Disable the Tone & Color Adjustments

It looks like all of the adjustments that can be added to the right hand pane have a tick-circle to disable the adjustment. However, the Tone & Color pane that is there by default doesn’t have this tick-circle.

I would like to be able to disable the Tone & Color in order to see if my adjustments are moving me in the right direction. Ideally, the Tone and the Color sections would have separate tick-circles.

    I don’t think this is plausible if you are working in a RAW format.

    The settings in that section are essential to developing a RAW file – without them there would be no image to compare against at all.

    A “compare” feature to compare the image against the original, unmodified image is probably what you are looking for – this is offered by DXO Optics Pro and most other similar software, for example. I believe that is already on the roadmap for an upcoming release.

    In the meantime, note that you can UNDO the “Reset” operation, so if you want to use that to compare against the original settings, simply undo the reset rather than trying to manually reset those options…

    Compare is not what I am looking for. That is something else entirely.

    I’m looking for something that easily allows me to toggle one or more adjustments off so that I can see the contribution of that adjustment. This is especially useful when I am trying to see where something went wonky as can be the case when stacking multiple adjustments, effects, etc. Sometimes after I get everything in place I realize that I may not have needed the original Tone adjustments that I did. I don’t necessarily want to reset everything since a reset function tends to go beyond what you expect or can change in scopes the software evolves. I also don’t really want to rely on undo since this feature tends to be flaky no matter the application being used or the developer. I simply want to see what a preview of photo would look like without a particular class of adjustments. I don’t want to commit anything or make any real changes at this point since I’m just evaluating it.

    Most of the adjustments and effects have tick boxes for this. A tick box basically shows you what it looks like with and without the adjustment. For the basic Develop stuff a tick box could momentary reset the affected sliders since that is what it looked like before you started adjusting those sliders. This would allow more flexibility in evaluating the contribution of a particular set of adjustments compared to using reset or cmd-z since I can toggle more than one checkbox at a time. Doing all of this with cmd-z can get confusing since you need to keep track of how deep you’ve gone into the undo stack. Not to mention that if you make an adjustment while in the undo stack you throw away everything that was above that point in the stack. Sometimes you may inadvertently do something that throws away everything that was above that point in the stack which means that there is now no way to get back to where you were.
