Lighting Filter settings history missing


Recommended Posts

When I select the position in history with lighting, the selection is not available i.e. the applied filter became permanent.

That's the point where you already applied the filter. You need to back up one more to get to the point before you applied it.

Unless you used a Live Filter I don't think you can recover the actual Filter settings.

Hi Walt

The filter is the first (and only) action, one step back is the original image. Seems like the filter acts differently than other adjustments hence the bug report... all adjustments should behave the same - my 2 cents.

Thanks for the help.

It's not permanent, if you move the slider in the history panel to the left the filter will be removed

To save time I am currently using an automated AI to reply to some posts on this forum. If any of "my" posts are wrong or appear to be total b*ll*cks they are the ones generated by the AI. If correct they were probably mine. I apologise for any mistakes made by my AI - I'm sure it will improve with time.

Hi @lysynski

Adjustments and Filters are 2 separate processes and such they behave differently. 

Adjustment layers only affect layers which are below them. Alternatively, you can make an adjustment a child of a layer (or layer group), thereby affecting that layer (or layer group) only.

Filters are available in both non-destructive and destructive forms. A variety of filters are available as live filters which are non-destructive. The 'Lighting' Filter can be applied as a Live filter. This would then give you the ability to amend the Filter Settings if you wish to do so.

You cannot convert a destructive Filter into a Live filter, a live filter is added as layer via methods below.

A Live Filter layer can be added via Layer > New Live Filter Layer > ....

Alternatively you can add a Live Filter Layer from the Layers Panel via the indicated Icon

I hope this helps.
