Hi again. One of the coolest features of Lightroom which is actually a little cute is a tool called the painter in Lightroom. So a painter as it sounds, its not something you use to paint your walls or paint something in Lightroom where you paint
photographs. It’s actually something very different. By the way can I please request you to subscribe to this channel so that you get all the updates that we send. Also it’s a good idea to hit the bell icon so that you get instant notifications when we have new content. Let us assume or let’s take a use case you actually spend time adding keywords to an image. Let’s call it for example in my case you’re looking at my desktop with a few images of a bird go to keel-billed toucan. Now let’s say you added a keyword for this particular image and you went in to the keyword section of this and you called this apart from I already have a Costa Rica keyword there. I’m calling this a toucan for instance. Right. So I and build this keyword. And if you want we can add another keyword here called the bird keyword and I entered it and I went back to my library view in this case I’m sitting inside a collection where I’m only seeing toucans collection. Now what if I had to do the same thing for all the eight images in my collection here. I have to go to every image and type toucan and things like that. Or you can actually be selecting all these images and you can simply go ahead and add the keyword called toucans. But in an image scenario where you’re sitting in a context like this there is a macaw here, there is a toucan here, there could be something else there could be an aracari there could be a Montezuma, there could be some tanager. So now you can’t just be selecting images from end to end and saying this is a toucan so Lightroom has allowed us to actually use a very interesting feature in the bottom here which is called as a painter. It’s an icon which is looking like a colour tank which has a spray you press on that and it sprays colours or something like that. So instead if you select the painter and next to it you have what should it paint feature. Where I’m gonna go ahead and select keywords in this example and once I select keywords it’ll ask me to type the keyword I should be painting. I’m gonna paint the keyword called ‘test’ for example just to test a few images. Now if you mouse over any icon you’ll see the painter appearing there. Now let’s take an example of painting this particular macaws abstract body image of all the feathers. And if I paint it’ll say assigned keyword test I go to the next image and I paint, it’ll say assigned keyword test. If you go back to your toucans collection. Now if I go ahead and say please make my painter go ahead and paint the toucans keyword to all of these images. It’s going to allow me to simply go ahead and paste the keyword called toucans to all of these images. It’s a very quick way to use the painter. Let’s say you don’t want to use keywords. You can actually go ahead and say I want to work on a different aspect which is actually the rating of an image. Now I’ll go ahead and say all these are fantastic images they’re probably five star images to I’ll go ahead and select five star here and say every image I’ve painted using the paint tool here should have a five star and you can see how below every image you’re getting the five star rating which you are actually painting using the painter tool. This is a cool feature which allows you to do a lot more things than just rating and keywords you can paint labels you can flag them you can also copy and paste metadata using the painter. You can actually rotate images by saying I want to rotate it like this from copied from one image or let’s say you say I want to rotate an image to the left or the right and paint it to all the images where you want to rotate left or right. And that’s the quickest way to actually apply similar settings to multiple files. Where this is a very cute and nice little feature. Don’t forget once you’re done with painting take your painter back and leave it in the place Lightroom actually wants you to.
