Camera Raw works well when you have to process one image. Yet what about those situations where you have a ton of photographs? Here what I want to do is share with you a few speed tips which will help you optimize your workflow as you're working on more than one photograph. Let's first start off by working on these iPhone photos. We'll click on one, hold down the Shift key, then click on another, then press Command+R on a Mac or Ctrl+R in the Windows to open up all of these files in Camera Raw. All of these files are lacking a little bit of Contrast and Color Saturation.
How could we process these all together? Well, one technique that we could use is we can click on Select All. With all of these selected here in the filmstrip we can then make a change. As I make this change, it will then be applied to all the photographs. So here I'll go ahead and make a few changes. I'm just going to increase a couple of these values here so that you can see how all of these pictures have changed. As we click through them, you can now see the updated version of these photographs. Another way we can speed up our workflow is you can select one image and then you can make an adjustment.
Let's go to HSL and here we're to go to the Hue tab and we want change the color of the yellow. You notice that we can change this either to an orange or a green. Let's make this green. Next, I want to change a couple these other colors as well to try to get this a little bit more uniform. Well, now that we've made that change you can then click Select All to select all of your photographs and then Synchronize. Whatever image you had selected first, it will then use those settings and synchronize those across to these other photographs.
Here from this pulldown menu what we can then choose is what we want to synchronize. Let's say we just want to synchronize our HSL adjustments, we can make that choice and then click OK, and it will update all of our photographs here with those new Camera Raw settings. Yet the trick is, is that many times we have 20 or 30 or 50 photographs that we want to process at once. In situations like that it's just not realistic to open up all of those pictures in Camera Raw.
Rather in situations like that we'll process one image in Camera Raw and then apply the settings to all the rest of Photographs in Bridge. Let's take a look at how we can do that in the next movie.
