Apparently, if you import an older LR3 catalog into LR4, LR4 discards your tone curves. This is happening for all photos, even those not updated to the new 2012 process.

Adobe has acknowledged this: http://feedback.photos​hop.com …my_tone_curve_a​djustments (external link)

I think I will return to LR3 until this gets sorted out.

Dang.

Wow! Thanks for the heads-up. I am just waiting for Amazon to ship my LR4 upgrade disk. I will wait with the upgrade until this is fixed.

Me too, an example of why it is better to wait.

This is only for photos imported from an LR3 catalog, correct? In other words, new work you do won't be affected?

That's my understanding.

Well, cool, just so everybody realises you can use it but you may want to hold off importing those catalogs until things clear up!

Dang.

Does it discard the LR3 tone curves and convert to LR4, or just plain discards the LR3 TCs and sets the image back to the original?


just a few of my thoughts...

I believe it just discards all tone curve settings. You can read the link in the first post for more details.

It kept all of mine. Maybe it has to do with the way it's imported?

Has this issue been resolved?
Are there any other issues reported?


I have a disk copy of LR4, and I am holding off on installing it until I am confident I will have the least amount of problems possible.

to me it looks like it alters all the sliders to keep the image looking the same. I upgraded a few days ago and it is worth it. I am reediting my images anyways that I want to print and you can get them to look better in lr4 so essentially, why NOT start over?
