Thread: free-form manipulation Lightroom 3 tone curve

  1. #1

    Unhappy free-form manipulation Lightroom 3 tone curve

    when i use Canon DPP and Photoshop CS4, i can freely manipulate the tone curves with multiple points whichever direction i want.

    now i am perplexed why Lightroom 3 only allows adjusting the curve on a straight vertical axis at any point? This prevents me from shaping the curve in a hump form which i typically adopt.

    i haven't seen any setting that can "unlock" this constraint? what should i do to grant me this freedom?

    Export to PSD and do it in CS4.
