Video: Creating and managing snapshots

All right, I'm still inside the Bridge and I have selected the four Swim meet.dng files that are found in the 24_camera_raw folder, and I've made some white balance modifications to these images inside of Camera Raw. Now, I want to stress that Camera Raw is incapable of applying permanent modifications to your images, whether you're working with DNG files or some other raw file format or even JPEGs and TIFFS. You cannot change the pixels inside the images, not using Camera Raw, because Camera Raw always saves such changes as parametric metadata and to see what I mean, go ahead and find your Metadata panel. For me it's down in the lower left-hand corner of the screen, and it might be someplace else for you.

Creating and managing snapshots

All right, I'm still inside the Bridge and I have selected the four Swim meet.dng files that are found in the 24_camera_raw folder, and I've made some white balance modifications to these images inside of Camera Raw. Now, I want to stress that Camera Raw is incapable of applying permanent modifications to your images, whether you're working with DNG files or some other raw file format or even JPEGs and TIFFS. You cannot change the pixels inside the images, not using Camera Raw, because Camera Raw always saves such changes as parametric metadata and to see what I mean, go ahead and find your Metadata panel. For me it's down in the lower left-hand corner of the screen, and it might be someplace else for you.

If you can't find it, then go to the Window menu and choose Metadata panel. And then I'll twirl close File Properties and Camera Data (Exif) so that I can see my Camera Raw options and notice that it's telling me that I have a Temperature value of 6400 degrees Kelvin, a Tint of +10, and then the other values are set to their defaults. All right, in this exercise we're going to go ahead and save off a snapshot of my settings. This is an option that was introduced midway into the CS4 product cycle. So, just in case you missed it, I want you to know it's here.

It is a little bit flawed, because when you're working with multiple images, you just save your snapshots to a single image file, which is just crazy but that's the way it works. Anyway, I have these four files selected. I'm going to press Ctrl+R or Command+R on a Mac to bring up the Camera Raw window, and then I will go ahead and press Ctrl+A or Command+A on a Mac just to make sure, make absolutely sure I have all of my various thumbnails selected, and I'm going to switch from the Basic panel. which is where I applied my White Balance modifications. to the final panel which is Snapshots, and you won't see any snapshots because we haven't added any to the specific file yet.

Click on the Page icon to make a New Snapshot, and I'm going to call this guy Slightly pink because the images are a little bit pink, and I'll enter the values as well, 6400 and +10, and then click OK. All right, now let's say I want to experiment with some different values, so I'll switch back over to Basic, and I'm going to reduced the Tint value to let's say -15, and I can reduce this value in increments of one by pressing the Down Arrow key. Ultimately I'll take that Tint value down to -five. When you're working with Temperature, the Up and Down arrow keys either raise or lower the value in increments of 50 degrees.

For 500 degrees you press Shift +Up Arrow or Shift+Down Arrow. I'm going to take this value all the way up to 9500 degrees Kelvin, which is awfully high by the way. So we're really warming up the image, but I just want us to be able to compare these settings very easily visually as we switch between snapshots. So, I'll click on the Snapshots icon once again, save a new snapshot, and I'll call this one Slightly yellow although you might argue it's more than slightly, and I'll enter in the settings 9000/-5 and then click OK in order to accept that snapshot.

Now I can click back and forth between the two. Notice if I want to make all the images slightly pink again, I'll click on Slightly pink. For Slightly yellow, I'll click on Slightly yellow. So you can create an entire list of optional settings for your various files, which is exceptionally useful, as we'll see. If you're trying to create a black-and- white version of an image, and then you also want a color version of the image and so forth, then you can save your settings out as Snapshots. Here's the problem though. If I click on a different one of these images, like Swim meet-2.dng, which is selected. So you would think you're saving these snapshots along with, you're not.

So I'll click on Swim meet-2.dng. The snapshots are not there, and they're not there with Swim meet-3 or Swim meet-4. They're just included now with the Swim meet-1.dng file. And what's even more peculiar here is if I press Ctrl+A or Command+A on the Mac in order to select all the thumbnails, and I want to take those snapshots now and synchronize them, well, if I click on the Synchronize button, notice that in and amongst these many check boxes here, the one that is missing, absolutely missing, is Snapshots. You just cannot synchronize snapshots.

Anyway, I'm going to cancel out and I'll click on Done in order to at least update the changes, and you'll see all the thumbnails get slightly more yellow there onscreen. Now, here's what's pretty amazing about it. Snapshots are just left out of the entire routine. So, notice that all of my thumbnails have these little slider icons inside the circles in their upper right-hand corners, thereby indicating that we've applied some Camera Raw metadata, and I can see what that metadata is here inside the Metadata panel, Temperature of 9500 degrees Kelvin, Temperature of -5. I entered that wrong for my snapshot, didn't I? Anyway, I'll come back to that.

In the meantime, let's say I want to wipe that out. I'll go ahead and right-click on any one of these thumbnails, it doesn't matter which one, then choose Develop Settings and then choose Clear Settings like so, and that just goes ahead and wipes out my Camera Raw Settings. The settings icons disappear. The metadata now tells me that I've got multiple values for the Raw file names, but otherwise, I don't have anything going on. Then if I press Ctrl+R, Command+R on the Mac, in order to re-invoke the Camera Raw dialog box, and I go ahead and press Ctrl+A or Command+A on a Mac in order to select all of my thumbnails, I'll switch over to Snapshots here, and I'm going to add one additional snapshot by clicking on the Page icon, and I'll go ahead and call this Default settings and what are those default settings? Click OK.

Let's check them out. I'll switch back to Basic here, 4800 for Temperature and -2 for Tint. All right, switch back to Snapshots, right-click on Default settings, choose Rename, so that's an option so I can rename these, and I'll go ahead and call this guy 4800 and then slash -2, as I've been doing just for the sake of consistency. Now notice by the way that Camera Raw has gone ahead and magically organized my snapshots in exactly the order I might like. That is Default first, the first change after that, the second change after that.

That's just because we're seeing the snapshots in alphabetical order. If you have a long list of snapshots and you want to keep them in some sort of sequence, then I suggest you start your snapshot names with the number, such as 01- for the first one, then 02 for the second one, and so on. Anyway, I'm not going to do that. Just click OK. Now, I was telling you I made a mistake for Slightly yellow, right. Its Temperature value is not 9000, it's 9500. So, I want to right-click on it and choose Rename. However, if I do that right now I would wipe out my settings. There is a bug. If you have one snapshot selected, and then you go to rename a different one, notice this option right there, Update with Current Settings.

Well, it'll go ahead and apply that when you choose Rename. So you'll both rename and update your item at the same time, so it just wipes out all your settings. You don't want that to happen, so instead, you click on Slightly yellow, 9000/-5 in my case, in order to go ahead and apply those settings and then right-click and choose Rename, and now I'll go ahead and preserve my settings as well as rename them, click OK, and we now have a renamed snapshot. Now I can switch back and forth between these. So I've got the Default setting here, Slightly pink and Slightly yellow, all at my disposal.

Big thing to bear in mind, however, is these snapshots only exist in your lead file. It doesn't have to be your first file but the file that's visible here inside the larger image preview. They're not going to be available inside the other ones, which means then if you want to, you could go ahead and put other snapshots inside of these files. So if I select Swim meet-2.dng, go ahead and click on Select All or press Ctrl+A, Command+A on a Mac, no Snapshots, switch over to Temperature, go ahead and apply an absurd Temperature value like 2500, go over to Snapshots, click on little page icon, call this guy Absurd of course, and then go ahead and enter its values I suppose, 2500/-5, and then click OK and now I've got the Absurd snapshot inside of the second file. If I Alt+click or Option+click on Swim meet-1.dng, we can see that it has Default setting, Slightly pink, and Slightly yellow.

I'll go ahead and apply Slightly pink because I figure that's the best white balance we've actually come up with, but if I Alt+click or Option+click on Swim meet-2.dng, I can see that I still have the Absurd Snapshot waiting for me there as well. Click Done and you'll go ahead and update all your images in kind. So, a bunch of different ways to update multiple files at a time. You can also save batches of settings as snapshots. This tends to be a little more useful when you're working with the single image as opposed to a bunch of different images, but it is still an option that's available to you.

In the next exercise we're going to transition from White Balance to the Exposure controls. Stay tuned!
