Re: Lightroom auto white balance

Is the WB grid option in Lightroom 6.14?

After all these years I have just found it, where all such options are. I have never noticed it. Thanks for the hint

The behaviour for sampling WB has sometimes been different for LR vs ACR / other editors. This can be relevant to the outcome. If you sample from only a few original pixels you suffer from noisiness and over-specific lighting effects within the photo. If you sample from a lot, you lose precision as to what part of the photo you are selecting for WB. Balance of mutual opposites.

In some instances - I don't recall which is current - the sampled area reflects how much you are zoomed in, so that when you are zoomed out a larger section of pixels are considered. In other instances, how much you are zoomed makes no difference.
