Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the Painter tool to update metadata, part of Lightroom 5: 1 Organizing Your Photos.
…When you want to update keywords or…metadata for a group of different images, you…can utilize the painter tool to make the task a little bit quicker and easier.…In other words, instead of selecting individual…images and then applying changes to the…keywords or metadata, you can use the…painter to essentially paint information onto your images.…Let's take a look at an example.…The painter tool is only available in the grid view, so I'll start…off by pressing G on the keyboard to switch to the grid view.…
And then click on the Painter Tool on the toolbar.…If the Painter Tool is not available, you can click the pop-up at…the far right of the toolbar and then chose Painter from that pop-up.…But with the Painter available, you can simply…click on it in order to activate the Painter.…You can then choose what you want to paint onto your images.…If you click the pop-up, you can see that we can apply keywords, color labels,…pick flags, star ratings, specific metadata values and…a variety of other information to our images.…
