  1. How to disable photos app from "auto enhancing" my photos when I open them?


    I am using Windows 11 Home Version 10.0.22621 Build 22621 and when I open photos from my SD card that are in CR2 format through the Photos app or Photos Classic, it shows the photo as normal for two seconds or so, then shows a lightened or darkened version of the photo, and it stays that way when the photo is exported somewhere else. It messes with the colors and quality, I was wondering how to disable this. I have not found how to so far.

  2. Disable auto enhance in Photos app

    Hi,

    I'm having some problems with the Photos app as it automatically enhances my RAW photos, which is kind of ridiculous without actually giving me the option to disable it or not. I've searched online and people suggest to simply disable ''Automatically enhance
    your photos'' in the settings under Viewing and editing, but I do not have that option, as you can see in the screenshot I've attached below. Is there a fix for this?

    Thanks

    Edit: I might all add that once opening the RAW photos in the Photos app and after they are auto enhanced they also appear auto enhanced in other image viewing apps, which is completely ludicrous. Only app that displays the images correctly is QuickLook
    preview.

    Disable auto enhance images on windows 11 photos app

    I would like to disable the auto enhance my photos option on the photos app in windows 11. For some reason there doesnt seem to be an option to disable it on the windows 11 home version. This was an option in the settings on my windows 10 pc. I just want to use the app to preview my raw photo files from my camera- it really frustrates me that it auto enhances the photos.

    Anyone know how to do this?
