Converting several files with the same white balance

Top  Previous  Next

It is often useful to be able to select a custom white balance from one image and use it when converting several images. One common use of this is when you shoot a reference shot with a gray card followed by a series of shots with the same lighting setup. Another common use is when converting a sequence of shots that make up a panorama.


To use the same custom white balance for several images it is best to switch to thumbnail mode. Select the images to convert together with the reference image. Next right click on the reference image and select "Convert Raw Image..." from the menu. When the raw conversion dialog is displayed select the white balance as required. Then enable the "Use this white balance for all images" checkbox and click on "Convert All" and all the selected images will be converted using the same white balance.
