Now that we have finished working on our photograph, the next thing that I want to do is explore how we can apply the settings which we use to another photograph in order to speed up our workflow. What you can do in Bridge, is you can select a photograph and then right-click or Ctrl+Click, in doing that you have an option to go down to your Develop Settings. Here what we want to do is choose Copy Settings. In doing this it will copy all of the settings and all of the panels that we apply to this photograph and Adobe Camera Raw.
Next, click on the image where you want to apply those settings so that these two images have a similar look and then right-click or Ctrl+Click once again, then go to Develop Settings and here we are going to choose Page Settings. Notice that Page Settings has a dot, dot, dot (...) next to it. Whenever you see those dots it means it's going to open up a dialog. And here in this dialogue we can apply all of the settings retrieve Apply to the other image or we can turn off a few, like the Crop, Spot Removal or maybe how we hand-painted in some adjustments.
Let's leave those off, let's also leave off Exposure because, remember this image it was underexposed while this one wasn't quite so much underexposed. Let's go ahead and click OK to apply the settings. What we will see is it will then apply all of those to this file. Next to open up this image and to customize it further, we will go to the File pull-down menu, we will choose Open in Camera Raw and really the only thing that I need to do here with this file is to change my overall Exposure.
So I will go ahead and bring that up until it comes up to a nice spot there. And in doing that you can see how it really speeds my workflow up. I don't need to go to the Detail panels or all of these other panels as well. The image is now complete, to apply these settings, we can go ahead and click Done. Here in Adobe Camera Raw we can see how it will update that file, so that now these two images have a similar look and feel. And on that note, that wraps up our look at a realistic workflow using Adobe Camera Raw.
Now that we've covered this overview, let's go ahead and dig into some of the details of working with Camera Raw, and let's do that in the subsequent chapters.
