    Can I create "actions" for LR 6?

    DeonH Level 1

      Hi and thank you for your help.

       

      I have a lot of repetitive work in the development module of LR. But, the values differ from photo to photo and this is why I can not use presets.

      I want to have something that can record key strokes and then apply them when clicking on a button or something. I use a lot of ... shift | double click exposure; shift | double click contrast ... and so on.

       

      I will really appreciate it if someone can help me creating something that I can apply to do this. I do this for exposure, contrast, whites & blacks of every single picture.

       

      Thank you so long.

          Not like you can do in Photoshop. That kind of customisation requires you to do some programming - see here - and that may not help you with auto settings.

           

          "I do this for exposure, contrast, whites & blacks of every single picture."

           

          So are you using AutoSync? It's the most efficient way to apply the same adjustment to multiple pictures. What about Alt/Option clicking Develop's Reset button? It's the quickest way to change your default treatment, if that's why you're having to do a lot of auto settings.

            Hi John.

            Thank you very, very much for your reply.

            I can use Auto Sync but it will not work because I will need to change the settings again. The thing is that I do sport photography. Players face the camera with different angels in relation to the sun and it sometimes happen that players move from sun to shade and so on. I manually set shadows and highlights which again influences the other settings.

            I'm not a programmer but I will check out the link you sent.

             

            Thank you once again.
