More spray, less pray with Lightroom 1.1
I’ll admit that one of the features I never really understood in Lightroom 1.0 was the Keyword Stamper tool. It seemed vaguely interesting, but I never took the time to grok its ins and outs.
No matter: the tool has now beem morphed into something that looks more powerful and more comprehensible: the metadata-centric Painter tool. This quick video from Layers magazine demonstrates how to use the tool to paint keywords, develop settings (nice!), or other metadata onto one or more images just by clicking and dragging. Martin Evening goes into more depth on LightroomNews. [Via]
