How to match total exposures of multiple images in Lightroom in only a few clicks

Adobe team member Benjamin Warde has shared many quick Lightroom tutorials in his Lightroom Coffee Break video series. Scott Kelby recently featured one from last December on his Lightroom Killer Tips website and we thought we would share it with you because it’s a very useful, easy tip to make using Lightroom to edit many images at once even easier.

When out shooting, it’s not unlikely that your exposures from shot to shot can vary dramatically. It would take a great deal of time to manually adjust the exposure of a lot of images in Lightroom one by one. The software has an easy built-in way to do all that for you. You hold Shift and click on the range of images you want match and then go to Settings > Match Total Exposure. Lightroom will then match the total exposure to make the images all look the same.

That’s all there is to it. There are many more great videos under 60 seconds here to help you improve your workflow in Lightroom and hopefully pick up a few new tricks.
