Copy and Paste Settings from One Photo to Another in Lightroom
An important skill to know how to do is to copy and paste, edits to another photo, especially for real estate p photography, whether it's the same room or even a different room. Generally, you want your photos from one house to look similar. So for example, if I was just doing natural edits and I wanted to copy the settings that I changed for this photo, all the edits I did, which we made a bunch of them earlier on, I would press the command C on A Mac or control C on A PC and it brings up the copy settings window here, you can choose which ones you want to have on. Generally, you want to have all of them on except for the transform and crop and also the healing. So, and you don't want your masking either. And as long as you use the same lens, you would include your lens corrections. You don't want to do these other ones like the transform because that's the one where we're straighten out lines and a different photo, a different room is going to look different. So you want to do that m...
anually, same with the cropping healing, et cetera. So all I would do now is press copy, then I would go to my next photo. So here is a similar photo, similar vibe ambient lights on but natural light photo, this one I would I am going to actually use the flam Bent process in the future with these other photos ju but just for example, I can now paste it command V and it paste all those settings onto this photo. And if we look at both of these together, let me do the reference photo again. So let's reference that other one you can see. Now the colors are very similar si similar vibe with just the overall look. Sometimes the only thing you have to do is adjust the overall exposure, individual exposure just a little bit just in case certain parts of this photo are a little bit bright. I might just if I was really trying to match this photo, I would increase the highlights and whites so that that window is sort of blown out similar to this other photo and that looks pretty dang good. You can also once you've copied, you can right click and choose develop settings and then paste or here you can get to your copy settings as well. And the other thing you can do here is you can select multiple photos and paste settings. So right click develop and paste settings and it will paste from what you've copied. There's also this paste from previous. So if you didn't go through and copy the settings, but you were just going one at a time. If you go to the next photo and then choose to paste from previous, it will paste what you previously did in that previous photo. All right. Hopefully that makes sense, that tongue twister and we will see you in another lesson.
