Tone curve, through Assistant Manager - RAW

Recommended Posts

The RAW Overlays video illustrates the ability to impose an automatic tone curve on an image (as well as a manual one), via the Assistant Manager icon on the top tool bar (an icon of a microphone). Applying this tone curve - presumably a sort of macro - improved the image I was working on (in the RAW Develop Persona). Is there a way to be able to see a display of the tone curve applied - it would be useful to be able to see it as a learning exercise and hopefully tweak or reproduce in the future. I presume the applied tone curve is the same every time and does not vary with the image selected.

The automatic tone curve is not available to view as a graph and it is different for each raw file because it is based on characteristics of the data in the file.

 

By the way, the "microphone" is a tuxedo, white shirt and bow tie :)

Thank you - I am pleased to know that it is specific to each image. It would help with understanding tone curve production if a future version of the program could have the facility to view the curve.
