Join Derrick Story for an in-depth discussion in this video Copying and pasting adjustments, part of Learning Photos for OS X.
- Copy and paste adjustments can be a real time saver…especially when you have a series of images,…you only have to image adjust one,…and then you can apply those changes to the other shots.…Let me show you how that works.…We're going to work on these two shots right here.…Go ahead and open it up.…Let's go to Edit.…First thing I want to do is make sure…we're working on the RAW file.…I'm going to hold down the control key…and go to Use Raw as Original.…Let's apply a filter to it.…
i like Chrome.…I want a different look for this shot…and then we'll go down here to Adjustments…and I'm going to go ahead and open up Light.…We're going to recover a few Highlights here like this.…We'll open up Shadows even a bit more, like that.…Maybe bring down the brightness just a smidge.…
Then I'm going to down to color.…I'm going to knock the Saturation down a hair more even.…Something like this, right there…and then let's add a little Definition.…So I want to do a number of changes here…because you really get the power of copy…and paste by doing that,…
