In Photoshop CS5 for Photographers: Camera Raw 6, Chris Orwig provides in-depth training on Camera Raw 6, the CS5 component that enables photographers to open and manipulate images in non-destructive and now even more efficient ways. This course covers the benefits of the raw processing, which makes it possible to more precisely control an image's appearance—exposure, shadow and highlight detail, color balance, sharpness, and more—including new workflow procedures and technical concepts and issues. Learn the entire Camera Raw workflow, from opening and resizing, toning and cropping, to sharpening and saving. Exercise files are included with the course.
Let's go ahead and take a look at how the Adobe Camera Raw interface changes when we work with multiple images. Here you can see I have three images that were all captured at the same time. Therefore, what I want to do is process these images in identical ways. So, I'll go ahead and click on one, hold down the Shift key and then click on the last one here in this set. Then I'll navigate to the File pulldown menu, and here we are going to select Open in Camera Raw. Once it opens these images, we'll notice that they're now located over here on the left-hand side as thumbnails.
We can see the various images. We can click on those images in order to target them. Now, what we can do, of course, is select one image, and then make a change to that particular image. Click on another one, and then make a change to that image as well. But what if we want to work on all three at once? All we have to do is click. Hold down the Shift key. Click again, so they are all selected. Now, what I am going to do is go ahead and desaturate. I'll do this just so we can really see a nice big visual effect in regards to the change. So, you can see that if you target or select all the images, you can then make adjustments which move across the board.
You can also do something else. Let me to go ahead and click on one image. With this image, I want to bring this back to color. So, I'll bring my Saturation slider back to normal here. I am going to increase the Contrast and a little bit of Fill Light, and I am going to go ahead and lower my Exposure down. Now, that I have processed one image, what I can do in order to process multiple is click Select All. Then simply choose Synchronize here. This will open up the Synchronize dialog, asking us, hey, what do you want to synchronize? In this case, basically everything.
So, we'll simply click OK. It will then apply all those settings to the other images. To view those changes, you can press your Arrow key to scroll through these different images and to see how those different settings work with these different files.
