Matching the exposure across multiple images

Is there a way to match one or more images with different exposures to an adjusted target image? Something like "Match Total Exposures" under Settings in Lightroom.

A simplified workflow could be based on auto adjusted images and applying the adjustment deltas of the target image to all images.

There is not a "Match Total Exposures" setting but there is an auto function which you can apply to multiple images and set which adjustments will be auto adjusted. Maybe that will work for you? It is the "A" button in the top tool bar.

I agree the "A" button works well to get a first base line adjustment. But if you now make further adjustments to one of the images in the set you will need to apply those adjustments manually to the rest of the images in the set.

In other words, I would like to automatically apply a second adjustment to an already adjusted value. For example, add +0.5 to whatever the current exposure values are to a set of images.

Maybe this is a wishlist item for a future release :)

If you have multiple images selected and use keyboard shortcuts to make your adjustments each image will increase or decrease the adjusted value in the same increment.

In other words, you can add +.5 exposure to any set of images by pressing the keyboard shortcut for "Exposure (+0.1)" 5 times.

Perfect, thanks for the tip.

In 11.1, there is a very performant "Normalise" tool (you can check the "exposure" box only) which can be used at this end, but I don't know if it is exactly what you are looking for.
