Lightroom - Presets for copy/paste/sync settings

Feature Request for Lightroom - 'Sync Settings Presets' - so that we can save custom preset combinations of settings to sync instead of just 'select all' and 'select none'.Especially useful when you want to paste certain combinations of settings. For example, paste all settings except for brush, gradient, radial, upright transformations and crop adjustments etc.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Settings Sets on Synchronise Develop Settings.

I frequently edit one photo and then use "Sync" from the develop module to apply the develop settings across the series of photos shot in the same conditions. Mostly I only sync the settings that don't depend on the framing of the photo, so no crop, spot, adjustment brushes, or transforms. However, sometime I just want to sync white-balance, or just crop. I have about four commonly used combinations.

I would find it very convenient to have selectable pre-sets on the sync panel. This would also work for the "copy develop settings" operation. This would save having to either "check all" or "check none" and then rebuild my settings.

Thanks

How about also finally updating the Sync window so that most users can make sense of it, instead of having to search for a setting which doesn't align with the tab-names in develop?
Here's a mock-up i made more than a decade ago...

While you're tracking this request, don't forget ACR folks want parity with features like this.  And for us, you won't even need to update the Sync Settings dialog as Earth so rightly requests in LR.<G>

Jerry considering i made the initial request in 2008 and pushed hard for years, it's doubtful... can't believe there's never been a UI/UX update for this dialogue.

Hello Adobe Family :)

Can you consider to improve copy / paste / synchronize settings, so user can create customizable presets? I'd like to have an option, and I believe I'm not the only one, to quickly choose preset with memorized checkbox set, instead clicking one by one each time, when i want to select different settings to copy.

Example:
When I want to copy white balance for some pictures, I can use alt+click on checkbox shortcut, so only white balance option is selected, and it's greate option to have, but then if I want to copy half of other settings to different set of pictures, I have to click one by one on each checkbox (to mark or unmark it), so idea is, to use the preset with memorized checkbox set instead of that.

Regards,
Lukasz Echenski

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Separate Copy Settings.

The copy settings dialogue should be re-organized.

Settings such as "Local Adjustments" "Spot Removal" and "Crop" should be moved into a category of their own on the right with an overall header checkbox, since these adjustments are both fundamentally different from the others and also the most dangerous to accidentally copy over to many other photos.

Every other category is basically dealing with color tones and overall lighting, whereas the three listed above are photo specific. Spot Removal specifically can be difficult to detect when accidentally done across a set of images and can be a complete mess to clean up when copied over to 1000+ images at a time. Local Adjustments are very similar in that they are typically specific to a certain shot, same for Cropping. 

My argument is basically that you are much less likely to want to change thousands of images by cropping, spot removing, or locally adjusting items. Therefore there should be two overall header boxes "Lighting & Color" and a second category something along the lines of "Local Adjustments." 

Ticking the Lighting & Color box would select everything except for the three listed above, and ticking the other would select all three categories.

This could also be remedied by allowing preset choices or something similar for copy setting selection.

I can't believe these requests have been here for years.
I've been looking for this for so long before submitting (now) such a feature request. I second every idea in this topic. Please reorganize that panel and let us have presets for sync and copy/paste settings. Thank you.

Having the ability to Sync your changes between photos is a great feature and i personally use it a lot.

I found though that i usually tend to sync specific group of options. For example, i use a different group when syncing edits, a different group when syncing crop, and so on. 

It would be nice to have the ability to create custom presets for these options so that i won't have to select each and every one of them for each individual photo.
