Copy Luma and RGB settings from 1image to another

Postby NNN636806701045444139 » Sun Jan 27, 2019 6:21 pm

Hi All,

I edited one of the images I was working on - converted it to a B&W image and then exported it to a .tiff file. I then made some additional changes to the .arw file.
I seem to like the .tiff file better - and ctrl -z for whatever reason doesnt seem to restore the exact settings.

I want to take the Luma and RGB settings from the .tiff file and reapply the same to my .arw file.

How (if I ) can this be done.

Thanks,
Sid

If I understand you correctly, once you converted to tiff you "baked" in the adjustments and there is no recovering them.

I believe cdc is right. Next time, try cloning a variant at the (each) stage where you are about to export or print.

The suggestion by OddS is indeed a very powerful way to use Capture One. Highly recommended.
