Using the Painter tool to Add Images to a Collection in Lightroom

To use the Painter tool to add images to a collection in Lightroom, in the Library module, right-click on a regular collection (not a smart collection) and choose Set as Target Collection. Then, select the painter tool and choose Target Collection from the list of Paint options. While the painter tool is selected, clicking on an image in the grid to add it to the collection. You can also click – drag across multiple images to add them to the target collection.

The video below demonstrates how to set a target collection when creating collection, tapping the “B” key to add an image to the targeted collection as well as using the Painter tool to add images to a collection (2:15):

The Secret Power of the Quick Develop Module in Lightroom CC

The Quick Develop panel is an excellent way to make relative changes to large numbers of images. For example, lets assume that yesterday you retouched a series of images in the Develop module – making slight changes to each image’s exposure. Today however, you are finding that they are all about +1/3 of a stop too dark (perhaps you were tired when editing or had too much coffee or whatever). If you were to add +1/3 of a stop to one of the images in the Develop Module (that perhaps you had already increased by 1/2 stop ( or +.5) yesterday) the Exposure slider would read +.83 (.5 + .33 = .83). Using the Sync command in the Develop Module to apply that change to other selected images, will NOT add +1/3 (.33) of a stop to each already manipulated image – instead it will change all of the other image’s exposure value to the same exposure value of the image being “Synced” from (+.83). If on the other hand, you have that same series of images with individually corrected exposure values, and in Quick Develop you clicked on the single arrow next to exposure (to add 1/3 of a stop), Lightroom would add +.33 to all images. Secret power!
And here is a video demonstrating this.

Setting a Preview Size on Import in Lightroom

If you choose to build “Standard” previews (under the File Handling panel options) when importing files into Lightroom CC, the size of the preview will automatically adjust to the resolution of your monitor. To designate a specific preview size, select  Catalog Settings > File Handling and in the Preview Cache area, select a specific size from the drop down menu. This can be helpful if you know that you are importing files while connected to a lower/higher resolution monitor than you will be editing them on.
