    I of all people in the whole world have a software question... First of all for the one person who doesn't know I shoot film exclusively, but I also scan the negs and work the negs in several programs. Now if I go at it one by one, I have everything I need. But unfortunately I have decided to come out of retirement in a couple of weeks.

    If I shoot large amount of film ie a wedding, I am going to have upwards of a hundred images to process. One at a time and I might as well plan on a weeks work and NOOOOOO way.

    So the long and short of it is, I want to take the first one and tweak it, then batch correct using it as a guide. I know there is a software to do it, I had a demo copy once but didn't really need it enough to pay for it at the time. Now I have lost the darn thing.

    So Question. DOES ANYONE KNOW OF A STAND ALONE SOFTWARE THAT WILL BATCH CORRECT USING ONE IMAGE AS A GUIDE. THANKS GUYS...

    The only thing that I can think of is photoshop. You can create and save a set of actions that you can apply to any photo.

    I picked up a note in google from another forum and found out that almost any editor will batch process. It's in the help files how tos. I found that my freeware editor would do it even... but thanks for giving it some thought.

    Ha I was about to post something similar saying that every editor which handles RAW files often has a batch command in it, but looks like problem solved anyway :)

    No. Photoshop is the worst program you can use for batch image processing nowadays.


    Mysteryscribe, sounds like you need Lightroom, Aperture, Capture One, something of that breed of software.

    I use Lightroom personally, for color correction I find it superior to Photoshop becuase you don't need to work in layers, and everything is right there, in a VERY intuitive design, without being destructive to the original integrity of your image.

    My son in law says that about lightroom about their being a seperate file for the commands or something like that. My little freeware program doesn't have all the commands I need but I think I can make do. I have a color match program I may have to take a look and see if it will batch.

    Right, Lightroom, instead of saving a duplicate of your image file that can potentially be larger than the original, Lightroom saves all the editing information in a really small library for reference. That way, you dont' have a gazillion edited images, just a library that keeps track of what you did to them. Aperture works the same way.
