One of the real advantages of digital photography over film photography is metadata. As soon as we capture a photograph digitally, we have a tremendous amount of information available about that photo. This information is generated automatically by the camera, so it relates primarily to the equipment and camera settings used to capture it.
For example, you can easily review which camera and lens were used, as well as the aperture, shutter speed, and ISO setting. These details can be helpful when evaluating images later or searching for a particular photo. They can even help you improve your photography by letting you identify the settings that worked best for a particular situation.

One of the best-kept secrets of Adobe Camera Raw is that you can process multiple photos in batch, synchronizing settings across multiple images, and even fine-tuning the settings for each image individually. This provides a workflow that’s easy and efficient to implement—especially compared to using an action for batch processing multiple images within Photoshop.
I recommend getting started in Adobe Bridge, where you can make use of the Filter panel (available from the Window menu) to filter images, selecting those you want to process. This generally involves images of the same basic subject that were captured at about the same time, with the same overall lighting conditions and exposure settings.

But there are a few things you’ll want to keep in mind when shooting clouds as a sequence of images you plan to assemble into a time-lapse video.
