5. Editing Your Shots > Copy and Paste

Copy and Paste

Working an image into perfect shape can involve a lot of time and slider-tweaking. And sometimes, a whole batch of photos require the same fixes—photos you took all at the same time, for example.

Fortunately, you don’t have to recreate your masterful slider work on each of 200 photos, spending hours performing repetitive work. You can copy the adjustment settings from one photo and paste them onto others. And in iPhoto ’11, you can do it with a keyboard shortcut, making that even easier than before.

First, open a photo you’ve previously edited in Edit view (you don’t have to open the Adjust panel). Then choose Edit→Copy Adjustments or press ⌘-Option-C. Now move to the next shot (using the thumbnails browser, for example) and then choose Edit→Paste Adjustment or press ⌘-Option-V. iPhoto applies all your corrections to the new picture. You can apply those copied settings to as many photos as you wish. This is a gigantic time-saver when you’re correcting several photos shot in the same lighting conditions.
