Thanks for the response - sorry for the delay in response.

I just did a re-install for other reasons. This was an issue when I first installed LR and on later re-installs, regardless of version.

I'm guessing there is a non-default setting to preserve the JPEG look (assume this would be the RAW image with in camera settings applied (Sharpness, Saturation, Tone, Contrast) when opening the RAW image in the Develop Module. Or... more likely, the thumbs are the camera JPEGS with in camera settings applied but when opening the Develop Module - you are looking at the actual often flat and dull camera RAW images. Sadly, the LR thumbs change to match the image in the Develop Module and as a consequence, you need to "work" to get them back and lose sight of what you already had - ie; sky turns from blue to white, shadow detail vaporizes, colors turn bland. Not an issue I assume if you actually shoot in JPEG.

Not much an issue for RAW either - just thought there was a way to carry over those in-camera preferences for instances where no editing would be required.
