How to find out what edits are applied

    Do you have anything activated in Auto Adjust?

    From what you wrote I'm not entirely certain whether you are expecting to see this level of adjustment or are surprised to see it. So my answers are somewhat cautious as to the possible sources.

    To see what tools and adjustments, styles, etc. have been applied the quickest option may be to pull up the Clipboard tool, use the copy to clipboard option and see which tools and tool settings (where visible) have been applied.

    SFA - Thank you - the Clipboard tool is helpful to see what's been changed! I do like the edits that are happening but curious how they're being auto-applied. This is what's under auto adjust, so tt might be that.

    Looking at it again, I do notice that it’s making the same updates to every photo - it’s not auto for each photo. So, same white balance adjustment, same levels adjustment, etc.

    I do not let Capture One auto adjust on import. Actually, I never bother to see how to do this because I prefer to see the original image and then click Auto Adjust. That way I can look at the change and see the extent of changes on the sliders. Capture One does a fairly good job with the Auto Adjust tool, but often it can have ideas especially about color temperature that over correct.

    Watching how Auto Adjust makes changes can be educational. One thing I learned using this approach is how often Auto Adjust decreases the shadow setting and simultaneously increases brightness, thereby retaining contrast for some images. I would never have thought to try this if I hadn't seen Auto Adjust do it.

    Jeff,

    If you are seeing the same settings for multiple images in a tethered situation, which is the impression I get here, there are some other possibilities to consider, either alone or in combination with each other (just to make things more interesting ....   ;)  )

    When tethering one can apply styles and presets, potentially in combination if your preference settings permit C1 to do so. Now this can be "interesting" and experimenting with the "Next Image Adjustments" tool's options could be time well spent. Especially the "All Other " and "Styles" field options. 

    I think you will probably work out from checking those settings whether any of them may be a source of fixed values - so I will not attempt to describe them and what they do at this point.
