Drag-and-Drop Instant Color Correction

This is a wonderful timesaving trick for quickly correcting an entire group of photos that have similar lighting. It’s ideal for shots where the lighting conditions are controlled, but works equally well for outdoor shots, or really any situation where the lighting for your group of shots is fairly consistent. Once you try this, you’ll use it again and again and again.

Step One

First, here’s a tip-within-a-tip: If you’re opening a group of photos, you don’t have to open them one by one. Just go under the File menu and choose Open. In the Open dialog, click on the first photo you want to open, then hold the Control key and click on any other photos you want to open. Then, when you click the Open button, Elements will open all the selected photos. (If all your photos are consecutive, hold the Shift key and click on the first and last photo in the list to select them all.) So now that you know that tip, go ahead and open at least three or four images, just to get you started.
