How to Apply Changes to Multiple Images in Lightroom

On this very quick video Julieanne Kost from Adobe, takes a look at how to apply changes to many images at once in Lightroom.

Lightroom 6/CC was only recently announced last week (see our extensive coverage – here) and Adobe released quite a few videos demonstrating how to do simple as well as more advanced things with the software (many of those videos including this one should also be relevant to users with older Lightroom versions).

So lets say that you want to make several changes to an image and than apply the same changes to several other images. Start by making the changes to the first image. Than go to the next image – if you press the previous bottom on right side of the develop module. This will apply all of the changes that you made on the older image to the newer one.

But lets say that you only want to apply several changes to the new image. In this case what you need to do is to click copy in the original image (on the left of the develop module). Choose the specific types of changes that you want to apply and than go to the next image and choose apply. In this way you can apply the same changes or specific changes to several images very quickly.
