Lightroom Classic:Local Adjustment or Synched spot removal to a cropped copy not sampling from the same place as in the original
1. Editing an image
2. Create a virtual copy
3. Crop the copy
4. Adding a spot removal to the original
5. Synching spot removal from original to copy
6. Interrogate spot removal
Expected - spot removal over the same part of the image and sampling from the same part
Actual - spot removal does not always sample exactly from the same place
This is an example in which the shift is very slight, sometimes the sampling area completety change!
Bokeh ball removed by sampling just from next to it...
Image 1 (original)
Image2 (virtual copy of the original on which I use the spot removal)
Image3 (a cropped virtual copy of image1 to which I synch the spot removal tool from image2 - see the shift on the right)
