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. A nice tight kitchen shot that creates a pleasing composition. It shows just enough, but not too much. However that being said, I would have tried to use a Photoshop tool or two to get rid of the sliver of countertop and refigerator? on the right side. Lights off was the perfect choice.

  2. Very pretty shot. The light is lovely. I like the composition, though wouldn’t mind seeing a bit more included along the bottom and left (and perhaps even a smidge more at the top?) I understand why the refrigerator door was included, but I find the sliver of it to be a little distracting. Looks like there’s quite a bit of noise in the shadows. And maybe it's my eyes, but is the image just a tad soft overall?

  3. Great job! love that the composition pulls you into the actual kitchen space and shows off the materials and backsplash ... my only wish is that it was just panned left a slight bit, getting rid of the fridge edge and gaining a bit more of the dining set to left ... yeah i can see a little sharpening or texture added but it’s a taste thing

  4. I dig it! Pleasing, intimate feel. I actually like the choice not to include more of the bottom. We all know the stools have legs. You don't need to show them in their entirety to know that. I think this leads to how Garett described the composition "pulling you in". Don't need the sliver of fridge. Every kitchen has a fridge. You obviously provided another angle showing the fridge. Here, that sliver is just distracting. The flash on the limes is effective, pretty and tastefully applied. Nothing to see out that window? Blow it out. It works well here. This is a fantastic real estate shot that shows off a lot of the important features of this beautiful kitchen (contrasting cabinets/counters on island and back row, cool tile backsplash that rises to ceiling with hood, cooktop, faucet, upper glass-door cabinets, adjacent eating area, etc...). Strong composition, nice lighting (smart choice for lights off, I know how many people LOVE to turn on the "fancy" edison bulbs.... way to stick to your guns!) and tasteful editing. This is a wonderful example of how you can approach a "real estate" shot with an "interior design" eye and elevate the overall quality of the image. Great job!
