Highlights and Shadows

As a former audio engineer I would expect that the highlights, midtowns, and shadows sliders would perform much like an “EQ” would with an audio signal as they do in lightroom and Photoshop. When I move a shadows sliders I do not expect it to raise ALL tones across the entire frequency/tone range with it. I would expect the slider changes to respond within a restricted level of “light” values. For me this is a showstopper. Currently I only use On1 Photoraw for image enhancement NOT as my primary editor. I was pleased to see Sync of Crop settings implemented in the PR-19 beta as this was huge workflow problem with using it as the primary. The inability to bring out shadows without blowing out whites is a reason to continue to not use PR-19 as my primary. I would suggest that each slider have a luminosity/tonal range fixed for each – highlights, midtowns, shadows. You could include some overlap of each range. If I was processing audio and I turn down the bass I would not expect it to effect the treble as it does in On1 PR

    To some extent, I agree. My engineering background likes the ability to adjust exactly as you describe.

    I do have another tool (non-adob) that has a feature that allows for “stickyness” to the controls. This stickyness has the advantage of keeping smother tonal transitions when needed.

    Thus, I would like to add having both options may be the best of both worlds.
