Cannot exit Develop pesona (commit or cancel)

Recommended Posts

Hello,

Let's say I have a JPEG that someone gave me and I don't like the white balance. I open it in Photo and go to the Develop persona where I can adjust the white balance, which is great. And so, I make my adjustments, and Save.

Now that my work is done, I try to close the file using Ctrl-W (PC), but then a pop-up warns me that I must "Commit or cancel" before I can exit. The same warning appears if I click on, say, the Photo Persona, or even try to shut down the program entirely using Alt-F4...

Then, since I understand the meaning of "Commit", and because I indeed intend to "commit" to the changes I just made, let's just say I hit Return, which is the way one normally "commits" in Photoshop, when there is any committing to be done. Except that, in Photo, ,othing seems to happen, and when I try to close the persistent JPEG, I'm still being asked to "Commit or cancel"...

So where is the darn "Commit" button? :o)

Sorry, please read "complete" instead of "commit" above, it's "complete" that is being used in this particular case, although I think I have indeed seen "commit" in some other place.

When you are in the Develop Persona, after making any adjustments, you need to "Commit" by clicking on Develop or "Cancel" by clicking on Cancel.

Either will return you to the Photo Persona.

Thanks Toltec, hadn't spotted that one...! That's an awful lot of mousing around, though... Is there a way to customize a shortcut so that hitting return will "Develop"?

How did you Save your work? I do not see a Save option in the Develop persona.

It might be simpler to stay in the Photo persona and perform your White Balance adjustment there, then Export. While you can use the Develop persona to do it, I believe the main intended use for the Develop persona is for handling RAW images, not JPEG.

Staying in Photo you can do the adjustments you need without that extra step of clicking Develop.

The white balance tool is a lot more sophisticated in the Develop Persona.

 

You can sample from multiple points and from an average area.

Sorry, but I'm pretty sure that your ctrl-s did not do a Save. I just tried that as an experiment. The on-disk copy of the file was not changed, nor was a .afphoto file created which is what should have happened if the ctrl-s worked.

In any case, "Save" would not get you a new JPEG file; you need to use Export for that.
