      Yeah. A few people have expressed their dislike for the pop out post feature. We shall discuss and see if that is a feature we will keep. Thanks for your feedback :)

    HI Folks…was about to buy the LR5 Workflow/Preset DVDs. Would previous owners get updated to the new system? Or would that need to be a new purchase?

    D.

    PS : I apologize if you’ve answered this question on ur FB group.

    The new preset system seems unbelievable really! Can’t wait to test it out. Since I dont have a Facebook account, I will post my comment on this preset here in this post, hoping it will be forwarded to Pye!

    I see that now only the Import section will reset everything. But when selecting anything from the Base tones or Stylized, there is no “simple” turning back.

    For instance, once you click on Contrast Boost, the according settings are updated, but you cannot undo that contrast boost, unless you CMD+Z at that moment with nothing else on top of the update history. But what if you do your Import, adjust your Tones, add Stylized, then you work other things like color curves, vignette, etc., then you just want to undo completely that addd Contrast boost? There seems to be no way to do that (like for the “reset curves”).

    Could you add/think of adding a “reset” for the Basic Tones and Styles so it is possible to flip back simply?
