I have Adjust v5.20. The whole great thing about Adjust back then was the Adaptive settings. Such as Adaptive Exposure, combined with Regions. You had great control. Same thing with Adaptive Saturation, combined with Regions.
So many different effects could be achieved, without having to go to presets.
Now with Adjust AI, we do not have the same control. I would like to see the same power of the original Adjust combined with Adjust AI in some way please, even if it does not work with the neural power.
I have tried both with photos over a number of days and I get much better control, with the same intended result using Adjust v5.2.0.
The two could be comparable to each other if you incorporated Adaptive Exposure and Adaptive Saturation with Regions - Regions being the key.
