Copy button in left side panel in Lightroom

While working with a large number of photos in real estate photography, we often need to give the same editing effects to all of them. Doing so allows us to achieve a homogeneous look to a batch of photos. Let us walk through how to copy edits in Lightroom to process multiple images simultaneously.

  1. Really nice job on this. The lighting looks good. And I like this perspective on the space a lot. Though could also see it with a tiny pan to the left, as well as a slight shift back up, for a touch more ceiling. In certain situations, I don’t mind some window bloom. Here, I think I’d rather see a crisper look to the cabinetry around the clerestory windows…to me, it would suit the clean lines of this kitchen (gorgeous sun rays streaming in might be a different story!) A couple staging things: Wish there were three stools at the bar, or maybe that the two that are present were re-positioned…they feel a little isolated from each other. And maybe the items on the island could be pulled towards the camera a little? I’m not sure what to make of the big vase next to the stove. I might have been tempted to remove it and replace it with the oil bottles near the faucet. And might have removed the empty rack thingy to the right of the fridge. Would also clone the yellow handle(?) visible above the grey wall out the window.

  2. Really great kitchen! Love the soft light look to the treatment... i swear this looked like a rendering at the thumbnail level lol! was it necessary to do such a heavy tilt here? space seems so spacious although this seems a bit wide as well so maybe it was necessary but seems a bit aggressive... floor feels like it is falling off a cliff towards camera and we are about to go backwards with it! lol! actually it seems to almost look like the foreground floor is slipping into to a sink hole as is has a bowl like shape to it... anyway i think its due to over tilting... not sure that 1. either so much floor is needed here or that 2. getting the seating area to right was super important to this particular composition... if there was room to move back and zoom in i would have taken it and not tilted barely at all... with larger spaces i think you have to use tilting very cautiously... anyway.. very well done in the treatments... oh also... got to make sure the stools are aimed the same direction as close as possible especially when going for an angled look

  3. I agree with Garett. It's just too wide. Including the chair and table in the foreground and the sliver of the room behind the wall on the left side is just taking away from the kitchen.

  4. If I was handed this island with only two stools, I would have taken some extra layers with stools rearranged and painted them back in in post to make it look like there were three of four stools. A little extra work on site, but well worth it in the end. Just looks "wrong" with two stools at an island that size. The room peak on the left feels "flashy", and I don't necessarily need to see the connected room on the right. That wideness is contributing to some unwanted distortion. Try to be more thoughtful with the staging. I understand, as real estate shooters, we're often left to work with what we have. That vase is cool with me, but I always try to pull stuff slightly away from walls. No need to jam everything against the wall. Bring a little more of that orchid into view. That island stuff could slide towards camera more and I'm not loving that empty rack thing on the far counter. The camera sees things differently than the eye, so even if it looks weird to your eye, it might look better in the frame. I think sliding that leather chair out of frame and not worrying about the space on the right, backing up, zooming in and taming the flashiness of that left room would improve this image dramatically. Oddly, that piece of wood (?) sticking up in the neighbor's yard is distracting me. Window views shouldn't take the focus out of the room. All that being said, you're definitely heading in the right direction! Nice feel.
