Differences between “Correction” and “Fixed” adjustments

There are two different types of adjustments:

  1. Correction: Make adjustments to values relative to the result generated by the AI.

    Relevant only for the Basic and HSL panels.

    For example, If you usually get exposure results that are 0.20 lower than what you like, you can add +0.20 to the exposure. Each edit will automatically raise the exposure value by 0.20.

    I.e. consider an image that initially received an exposure value of 0.30 from the AI. After adjustments, the exposure value for this image will be modified to 0.50. Another image that received an exposure value of 0.80 will now be 1. 

  2. Fixed value - Apply a fixed value to all images and overwrite the AI value.


    Relevant for all develop module editing panels (Basic, HSL, Tone Curve, Color Grading, Detail, Lens Correction, Effects, and Calibration).

    One exception is the “Exposure” setting.

    For example, If your AI Profile applies a Sharpening amount of 40 and you want this value to be 80, you can change the fixed value to 80.

Using the Profile Adjustments feature doesn’t require re-editing the project.

The adjustments are automatically applied to the AI Profile results when downloading the editing results.
