Finally, you found Ai to help get through your backlog, you uploaded your edited images, got your profile, and ran Aftershoot EDITS. Yet, something is wrong. The images don't look right.

This can happen for a few reasons which we will address below.

The most common issue faced is a missing slider or adjustment. Aftershoot EDITS works on certain Lightroom sliders, but not ALL of them. It also does not touch certain parts of Lightroom that can impact your final edits.

First and foremost, make sure the profile is correct. Some presets default to a certain profile in Lightroom and others let Lightroom decide.

Simply changing the profile can have a large impact on how the images look when displayed.

Check your past edits and make sure you are on the same profile.

To find the profile in Lightroom, look at the right-hand side toolbar.

The second adjustment available will show you the profile you chose and the other available profiles.

To batch correct the issue, view the article, Issues with EDITS.

If the profile is correct, the next step is to look at the sliders to see if anything seems off.

Are the highlights pulled all the way down when you would normally not have them that far down? Do all the numbers seem to fall in your normal range? Are there sliders adjusted that may not normally be?

The tone curve is one adjustment Aftershoot does not touch. There are multiple tone curves available out of the box from adobe.

Some presets you may have edited with could adjust that tone curve and Aftershoot may not have made that adjustment for you.

In the tone curve selection, you can choose a tone curve for the whole image, the reds, greens, and blues.

Some presets adjust one or all of these tone curves. Compare it to one of your past edits to make sure the tone curves for each match.

Below the tone curve, you will find the HSL sliders.

These are adjustments that Aftershoot can make if they are adjusted throughout your shoots.

Aftershoot will adapt and adjust based on what you taught it in regards to HSL sliders.

Check and make sure all these seem comparable to what you normally do while editing. If they are not within range, there may be an issue with either the training data or with EDITS applying edits. Please connect with support on this issue!

To batch correct the issue, view the article on Issues with EDITS.

Next, you will see Color Grading. Aftershoot EDITS does NOT touch the color grading.

Be sure to check and make sure these match your past edits.

Some presets and editing styles touch one, two, or all three of the midtones, highlights, and shadows. It is a great way to achieve a certain look, but not something Aftershoot will do automatically.

If the color grading is not correct, please head to the article on Issues with EDITS to learn how to batch-correct this.

Last but not least, Calibration.

AfterShoot will not automatically adjust camera calibration. Some editing styles and presets utilize different Calibration settings to achieve their look.

Sometimes, you may just have a calibration you use for specific cameras. Check past edits and make sure the calibration matches how you would normally edit.

If not, check our article on how to correct Issues with EDITS.

If you have gone through all of these steps and your edits still seem off, it's time to reach out directly to support.

There may be an issue with the training data or your profile that may need to be adjusted.

All editing styles function and function well with Aftershoot EDITS so if the results don't line up, let us know and we can help get things back on track for you!
