Lightroom Q please?

Hi,

I took a load of images last evening in the summer sun.

Got them on the notepad......all blue....

A nasty suspicion forming in my mind was soon confirmed; I'd left the camera set for "incandescent" after taking a picture in my garage and forgot to reset.

For lightroom is there a way of importing a batch where an error has been made (I know I can change them one at a time) i.e. correcting the light balance of the whole card load?

I've got Lightroom 3 (or 3.1 I think)


TVM


David

In the develop module - make sure AutoSync is switched on (bottom left of the Dev module options at the right hand side)

Then with all the images selected correct the white balance on the first shot and it will automatically apply that to them all.

Nice one, I'll try that.

Re: Lightroom Q please?

If you photographed in Raw then it is easy to fix as no WB correction will have been applied. It is just that the initial setting in LR will be as per your camera. You can certain correct them all as suggested. I tend to find the correct setting for one image then select all the others in the Library Module and click on Synch Settings button. You can choose which settings you want to synch (in this case WB).

However, if you are using JPEG it is much more difficult to correct outside the camera. This is because a correction has already been applied and the also gamma correction applied afterwards.

No, I take two, one basic jpeg (which "my pictures" sees) and the raw image which (as you say) gives me the flexibility to experiment.

I have the option over in the right panel for "as shot" or "daylight" or "auto"(WB).

One looks a bit bland, one looks a bit over-done (daylight?) and the other is some where in between. Then I look at them all again and decide something different.

I'm gradually finding my way around the tools (graduation tool, paint brush) etc but I'm not very techy at it.

Re: Lightroom Q please?

You can do a custom WB by using the eye-dropper tool on a mid grey in one photo. If the result is OK you can apply this WB to all of the other images as previously described.

If the result is not OK you can try different grey areas in the picture - or other pictures- and then apply the best result to the others. Don't forget you can tweak the WB with the sliders too.
