    Back in my Windows days, I used PaintShop Pro, which had a button called "one-step photo fix" or something like that. It corrected the exposure, color, sharpness all in one go. I have not been able to find anything like that for OS X. Anyone?

    Use iPhoto (Apple's free photo editing app). Import image into iPhoto and use "Auto Enhance".

    Should do the trick.

    Lightroom has a "Auto" feature that seems to do what you want

    I started out using the auto button, but as I have got more familiar with LR controls, I find I don't use it that much.

    Different apps have different names for auto-correct. But in reality there is not a single fix that gets the best out of each image. It should be considered a starting point and sometimes you will find it may not even be the right starting point.

    In LR I use AUTO on the Development tab. It generally blows the exposure so I have to reset that. But tone and color are pretty good so I leave those and then move on to other adjustments that get me the image I visualized when I pressed my shutter button.

    But if what you are working on are snapshots, then by all means the "auto" fix may be all that is needed.
