[Duplicate] AP: Highlights and Shadows Problem

Recommended Posts



I have just started to work on AP yesterday and I have realised one thing as Adobe Lightroom user; Highlights and Shadows adjustment algorithms on AP doesn't work like Adobe. If I adjust highlights&shadows on Adobe it responses with mid tones and doesn't create fringes, but with AP they work so extremely, for example when removing with sky highlights I can't manage to have correct sky view anymore coz it effect all the photo extreme way.


Do you have any idea how I can deal with it or do I apply somethings wrong?


Thank you,

Hi Oflatun,


I've reported to the developers how the "Shadows & Highlights" crushes especially the shadows.

And sent them example files so they are aware of it and are hopefully working on it.


I'm amazed that more people haven't mentioned this.

Personally i have to have this working to be able to work with photos.


Left is Adobe lifting shadows vs APH lifting shadows on an underexposed RAW.

Thanks Jakerlund.


This is really bad and for now I have to use Lightroom and AP combination, which I organise my Raw files (using like Bridge) and do main shadow&highlight adjustments there and then on Lightroom options I send my photo to AP as .tiff (16 bit) to further editting.
