Batch Editing backlit photos in under a minute using Lightroom’s latest AI Mask Update


The release of Adobe Lightroom update v11.4 back in June 2022 brought with it an exciting improvement to the powerful Masking tool, namely the ability to copy and paste masks as well as batch process them via syncing.

In this video from Shotkit founder and CEO Mark Condon, Mark shows how the batch editing feature can be quickly applied to a series of backlit photos to adjust the exposure of their subjects.

While other photo editing software has been rushing to the table with their own versions of AI masking tools (Luminar Neo is one popular example), Adobe and its powerful Sensei technology still leads the way in this field.

Take a look at the video below to see how in (much) less than a minute Lightroom identifies the subject in a photo, lets you apply changes to the subject, and then has the edits applied intelligently to subsequent images.

The results are nothing short of astonishing, and give us another glimpse into the exciting (and somewhat intimidating!) world of AI-powered photo editing.
