Hello, I'm looking for a solution to a batch processing problem that I'm faced with every time I attempt to batch process photos, from a shoot that involves shooting inside than going outside, and back inside. From time to time there are exposure issues. I want to even out all the exposures. By batch processing using the auto tone control command.
Using auto tone control, results in a unique exposure value based on each image your processing.(Usually their way too hot by at least 1/2 a stop or more)
As part of that same batch process I would like to deduct a value of -50 or about 1/2 stop less from the unique value
generated by the auto tone control. Resulting in a 2nd unique value for the images In the batch process.
The best I can do with the standard LightRoom presets, Is to focus on 1 of the images and reduce the auto exposure slider by about 1/2 stop.
The result of that adjustment is. Only the image in focus at the time of the adjustment would have a unique 1/2 stop
All the other images in that batch would then automatically sync to the exposure amount from the focus the image.
Anyone have any ideas or suggestions?
Select all of the photos of interest in the Library Module grid, then in the Quick Develop panel of the Library Module, change the exposure by –0.5
Good suggestion, but the Quick Develop Exposure < and << increments are .33 and 1.0 EV. So how do you apply a relative Exposure correction of .5 EV? Hint: Use the SHIFT key: http://lightroomkillertips.com/getting-precise-control-quick-develop-settings/
Here's another solution that allows you to apply relative settings without having to switch to the Library module. You can also create Develop presets for applying relative adjustments such as -.50 Exposure: Lightroom: Relative Develop Presets would save the day! | Photoshop Family Customer Community
