Applying Changes to Images Within Stacks

To apply a change to all images in a stack in Lightroom, the stack must first be expanded. Otherwise, changes will only be applied to the image on the top of the stack.

Below, the stack and adjacent image are selected and a one star rating is applied.Here the stack and adjacent image are selected and a one star rating is applied

Lightroom 4 Beta- Enhancements to the Library Module

• In the Folder panel, you can now move and/or delete multiple folders at one time.

• In the Collection panel, Option -drag (Mac) | Alt -drag (Win) a collection to duplicate it. More specifically, if the collection is loose (it’s not in a Collection Set), Option -drag (Mac) | Alt -drag (Win) until a thicker line appear between two items (indicating that the collection will be duplicated), and release.  To duplicate a collection within a Collection Set or to duplicate the collection into a different Collection Set, Option -drag (Mac) | Alt -drag (Win)  the collection on top of the Collection Set icon (watch for the highlight) and release.

• Stacking is now available in Collections.

• At the top of the Filmstrip bar, the selected image’s folder or collection is displayed. (This is really handy when in other modules.)

• The Flag attribute is now global.

• You can filter and/or search images based on their Metadata status. Images will be assigned one of several different statuses including Changed on Disk, Conflict Detected, Has Been Changed, Unknown and/or Up to Date).

• You can also search/filter on Map Locations and GPS Data (GPS Location or No GPS Location).

• That folder structure that you carefully crafted in the Develop module to hold your presets is now maintained both in the Import dialog box as well as the Quick Develop panel.

LR3 – Stacking Photographs

Stacking photographs can be helpful when you only wish to display the best of several similar frames in the Library while hiding the others (as if stacking images on a light table for those of us old enough to remember shooting chromes). In Grid view, select the range of photos, then choose Photo > Stacking > Group into Stack or Command (Mac) / Control (Win) + G. A small icon is displayed in the upper left of the photograph’s thumbnail in Grid view displaying number of stacked images.

Some additional stacking shortcuts:

• Command (Mac) / Control (Win) + Shift + G will unstack images.

• Tap “S” will show/hide the images in the stack.

• Shift + { or } moves an image up or down in the stack.

• Shift + S moves an image to the top of the stack.
