Our goal at ShootDotEdit is to color correct your images for consistency throughout the job. We understand that you may have sections of your job that you may want to further adjust once you receive your catalog back. Using Lightroom’s Quick Develop tool, you can quickly and easily make global adjustments to your files without overwriting ShootDotEdit's color correction.
For example, if you get a job back and prefer the indoor reception images to be warmer than the outdoor ceremony photos, you can use this tool to warm up all the outdoor images at once.
Lightroom's Quick Develop tool is a great option for fine tuning your images, and because ShootDotEdit has created consistency throughout your photos, you can easily make global adjustments to your files in bulk.
To use Quick Develop, simply open your completed job in Lightroom and go to the “Library” module.
On the right side, under the Histogram, you’ll see Quick Develop.
Here, you can make incremental white balance and tonal adjustments to fine tune blocks of images. First select all the images that you would like to adjust. Then use the single arrow to adjust your image 10 points and the double arrow to adjust by one full stop. You can also use presets within Quick Develop.
Note that the Quick Develop tool is very different from the Sync or Paste tools in the Develop module. Those tools will simply copy and paste slider values across selected images. While this tool can be really handy, it can also overwrite the editing that ShootDotEdit has already done in the Basic panel. ShootDotEdit will get your images consistent for you and then you can reduce your overall time investment by using great tools like Quick Develop.
