Automating Color Control in Lightroom

fIn Lightroom, there are three strategies for applying settings to several images at once.

  1. Copy and Paste Settings is perfect if you have a few images shot under the same lighting that require the same color corrections. Simply copy the settings you adjust in one photo and paste them into other images. This can be done either in the Develop Module or the Library Module.
  2. Synchronize Settings is very useful to apply settings to a whole series of images. When viewing a series of images in the main window, or filmstrip, select an image that has the setting that you want to share across to other images. Select all of the other images you want to share the settings with and use the Sync option.
  3. Save as a Preset is ideal if you regularly shoot under the same lighting, such as in your studio. Simply save the settings as a preset and apply them to future images taken under the same conditions. You can apply a preset when opening images.

Lightroom allows you to synchronize settings in the filmstrip of either the Library or Develop modules, or in the Library Thumbnails.

If you shoot a lot of images under the same lighting on a regular basis, like a photography studio, it might be helpful to save a preset that can be used over and over.

Lightroom allows you to save your Camera Raw settings as a default. Since even the same model camera may capture color a little differently, it will be useful to save unique settings for each of your cameras. To ensure these settings are only used for a specific camera’s serial number and ISO setting, set that option in your Preferences.
