#CreativeFriday – Duplicate and Reset Pins in Lightroom 5

We were at the Canon road show in Birmingham last week enjoying meeting customers, talking Lightroom and Photoshop tips and trick as well as watching the bird activity. I was reminded about an update in Lightroom 5 from a customer, that i wanted to share with you. When using the adjustment filters (Radial filter, Graduated Filter), Clone/Heal tool and Adjustment Brush you are now able to duplicate them and re-use the settings on other parts of the image. You can also reset all entries here as well.

To see this option, you can right click on an existing pin, then the fly out menus (shown below), will be displayed.

    How do u duplicate the clone/heal? (Can’t think of a reason when u would, but…) it does not give a duplicate option when clicking on pin. Also, some folks won’t know (beginners) to click on pins to get your options. Perhaps giving instruction would be helpful? Unless u did and I didn’t see it.

      I’m not sure of the need to duplicate the clone/heal tool and if this would help the workflow, as the settings will be different for each one.
