Fix Bad Photo Exposures With One Click In Lightroom

We've all taken what would be an awesome photo and had to edit the exposure afterwards. Sometimes, it even happens with multiple photos. Instead of going through them one by one, you can fix multiple photos at once with Lightroom.

There's a simple way to fix all your photo's exposures at once by simply matching bad exposure photos to a good one. It only works for landscape and HDR photos, and requires Lightroom. Here's how it's done:

  1. Open the photos you want to fix in Lightroom's Develop module
  2. Select the bad photos, then click the photo with good exposure that you want them to match.
  3. Go to Settings > Match Total Exposure

After a few seconds your photos will all have similar exposure levels that will match that of the good photo you selected at the end. Watch the video above to see exactly how it's done.

    Tried to give this a go, with LightRoom 5.7.1. But that menu option isn't there.
