Easiest way of copying edits from one image to another

Recommended Posts

I have been a Lightroom user for several years, but since I now shoot more and more equirectangular 360 panoramas, I have found the software seriously limited.

So, yesterday I bought Affinity Photo after seeing some of the great instructional videos on their Youtube channel.

Many of my 360 images are part of virtual tours, which means a lot of images will require exactly the same edits.

In Lightroom, I can synchronise the settings of selected images or copy the settings of the previously opened image to the next by the click of a button. 

Are there any similar functions in Affinity Photo?

Thanks for taking time to read this!

You can create Presets for Adjustments and just apply the Preset to each Image.

Thanks for your reply firstdefence.

Am I right if I assume you have to make separate presets for white balance (your first screenshot), then similar presets for each other adjustment - or can I (this is what I am hoping for!) make a single preset that includes absolutely everything that has been done to the image, or even better - let me choose which edits to include in the preset? 

If yes to the last option, is there a video somewhere showing how to do it?

Again, thanks a lot for your time and effort!

The best way to make a group of adjustments is to use the Develop Persona. You can make several adjustments at once (including White Balance) and save them as a single preset.

Use the Basic panel for most adjustments. Once done, use the burger menu on the Basic panel and "Add Preset" to create a preset with all those adjustments. It will prompt you for a name. Select that from the Preset: menu to apply.

Edit. I also like having all the sliders in one panel.

But, correct me if I'm wrong, what if you have also made LENS, DETAIL, TONAL adjustments! 
Then a separate preset must be defined for each panel! 

For JPEG shots ,in Photo Persona, once all adjustments are made you could group them en copy/paste that group onto an other image !!!

Yes, I did say "a group of adjustments". 

You might have to make two or three presets, but it's still very fast to apply.

If you did that from several adjustments in the Photo Persona, there would be a huge bunch of unwieldy layers to copy and paste. Lots of layers is not always good. In addition, there are distortion and rotation adjustments in the Develop Persona that are much better (or much easier to achieve) than in the Photo Persona.

I'm a big fan of the Develop Persona. A very fast way of making 95% of initial adjustments.

The other good thing is, all the adjustment sliders are in one place for easy "tweaking". How long would it take to work through several adjustment layers in a group of layers ?

It seems I can't do everything I want in Develop Persona (incl. dehaze) and  recorded Macros doesn't allow Develop Persona sets to be included.

So - would it, after all, be better to start to record every setting in Photo persona and then to continue to add filters etc. while still recording, in order to get as close to a "click one button" solution as possible?

... or am I right to assume that Affinity Photo maybe isn't a straightforward Lightroom replacement for making equal edits to large series of photos?

Affinity Photo isn't a Lightroom replacement Period! Lightroom is a Digital Asset Manager (DAM), Affinity Photo is not, so you can't really compare them.
