Now finally what I am going to do is go all the way over to WashingtonArch.dng and that's this arch that's in Washington Square, in Downtown, Manhattan and I shot every one of these images out of a cab window. So I just sort of flipped my arm out the window and shot away, clip, clip, clip, and this is what I ended up coming up with. I love to do stuff like this, great fun. And you end up getting these wonderfully random shots that look like there is some sort of earthquake going on.
Now image that you start off by just editing a single image in Camera Raw, so instead of being so organized as I've been so far, you just edit a single image, because you don't know if you want to edit the other ones the same way or not. So just go ahead and grab one of them, any one. I am getting WashingtonArch1 here, and then I am going to press Ctrl+R or Command+R on the Mac in order to open the Camera Raw dialog box.
And I am now going to adjust the color settings. This was a very gray day in Manhattan. It was raining like crazy and so it looks a little too blue for me, everything is looking way too blue. So I am going to go ahead and then change my Color Temperature to a Cloudy day, notice that, and that's going to already take care of a lot of the problems, warm things up here, and I am going to tab my way down to 10, change it to 0, I am going to increase the Exposure value ever so slightly to -0.15, I am going to change the Shadows to 10, Tab, Tab in the case of the Windows version of this product, and change the Brightness to 75, maybe reduce the Contrast slightly. That's pretty meaningless actually, but these are basically the settings I want to use let's say.
You may wonder, is this really a red light? Is this a stop light, or is this a function of highlights being turned on? If it turns out, it is a red light, but if I turn off highlight, it's not that red, you've got to watch that. Sometimes your reds aren't real, if you've got that Highlights checkbox turned on.
Alright, so go ahead and click Done in order to apply those changes to the thumbnail inside the Bridge Window. Now let's say you want to take those settings and you want to apply them to the other two arches as well.
Go ahead and right-click on the thumbnail that you like and choose Copy Camera Raw Settings in order to copy those settings for a moment to the clipboard. Then I'll select the other two by clicking on one and Shift+Clicking on the other. I'll right-click once again and I will choose Paste Camera Raw Settings and notice that there is a little ellipses here, the ..., that's showing me that this command will open a dialog box, and the dialog box asks me what it is that I want to paste. For example, do I want to paste everything or do I want to just paste the settings? In other words the color settings independently of the crop?
That means, if I had cropped this, and obviously if I try to crop and rotate this arch, it's not going to be at the same angle as the other arch is because they are all at different angles here. So I probably wouldn't want to paste the crop, but because there is no cropped information it doesn't matter whether I select this item or not. And every one of these subset options here just turns on and off checkboxes. So if I choose Adjustments, it's just a group of checkboxes that get turned on or off at a time.
Alright, so once I've done that, I'll go ahead and click OK in order to accept those changes and I am just accepting the adjustments because there is nothing else associated with this image and I'll click OK, and sure enough, just like that, those settings get applied to the other images as well and they're saved along with those images as metadata.
Finally, if you don't like your settings, if you apply some weird, ridiculous settings to an image or you just think better of them, you decide you don't want to work with those same settings in the future, you can right-click on the thumbnail and just choose Clear Camera Raw Settings in order to revert back to your original image, free of the adjustment settings. Notice that icon there will disappear in just a moment, you have to give a time, but when it disappears those adjustment settings are totally gone for this specific file.
You can also repeat the last Camera Raw settings that you applied. I'll go ahead and click on this first WashingtonArch, the one whose settings I just cleared and then I am going to right-click once again and I am going to choose previous conversion in order to reapply the last settings that I applied. So there is a bunch of different ways to apply and reapply Camera Raw settings inside the Bridge.
