Editing photos has definitely become easier for the layman with the advent of mobile photography apps. You just slide, swipe, and tap, and your photos look much better than if you had experimented on it with your basic photoshop skills, and you didn’t even have to leave your smartphone. VSCO is one of the most popular camera apps on the market, and now they’re making it even easier for you to edit multiple photos, if what you want to do to them is basically the same.
The latest update to VSCO now brings you the Copy + Paste function which lets you apply the same pre-set edits to a batch of pictures, so you don’t need to tediously edit them one by one. So for example, you feel that all 25 photos you took at the concert were all a bit underexposed, in just one fell swoop, you can adjust their brightness without having to edit images 25 times.
The first step would be to choose in your image library the one that has the edits you want to duplicate then tap the copy + paste button at the bottom of the screen. After you select Copy Edit, you then check the photos (or just photo) that you want to apply the edit to. Tap the Copy + Paste button again, and select Paste Edit. And you’re done! All the photos have now been edited . However, not all kinds of edits can be copy pasted. The crop and straighten kinds cannot be Copy + Pasted across images.
Adobe has also brought this copy paste feature to their Lightroom app. but to be able to use the app itself, you need to have a Creative Cloud subscription. VSCO is free to download from the Google Play Store, but if you want more presets, then you need to make in-app purchases.
