Auto Tone Adjustment

I would like to see an auto adjustment that picks up the settings from the camera image’s embedded jpg and applies them to the captured raw image.  Since we have set the camera to apply these settings (contrast, saturation, sharpening, etc.) to jpg captures, it makes sense that we might want to have our raw captures steered in this direction.  At least having the option of applying this would be great. This would give us a better starting point for further adjustment.

Many times I have found that the competing products apply too much exposure adjustment in their Auto Tone selection – something that was not my intention.

    Selectable and/or user-defined auto presets, along With one-click save-to-jpg would be Nice, too.

    Auto Tone Adjustment: Could be based on an intelligent image analysis, that weights for best setting of exposure, black point, white point, Mid tones and contrast, Auto Tone Adjustment in Lightroom works pretty well. As a standard I often only have to correct the brightness of the image after Auto Tone Adjustment, using the exposure slider once and the picture looks overall okay. The Auto Tone Adjustment could be aware of faces, sky, meadow, broken out sun or other light sources, deep blacks without information etc. This is a great tool for fast processing of large amounts of event photos or other work, that needs a mass of pictures done in an average to good quality.

    Auto Presets: This is something different in my opinion. Camera presets are not the way to correct exposure errors or heavy or low contrast scenes – they define, how an image should look: Harsh contrast or perfect skin, much saturation or nuanced colours and so on. It has to do with the transistion of the natural colours to the colours in the image. In Lightroom Presets are user definable and you can use a Xrite Color Checker for making a natural looking preset for example

    I would like to see both: An intelligent Auto Tone Adjustment and user definable Presets.

    I don’t like the Auto Tone Adjustment of Lightroom. So hope, an automatic is better, if it involves the scenery (faces, sky,…) as proposed by Wolfram
