Lightroom Ecosystem: Ability to copy/sync settings/adjustments across a group of photos

It seems that I am unable to copy or sync adjustments to multiple images in the new LRCC? I just imported/uploaded my first job with over 1200 RAW files, and need to set my base contrast/saturation/sharpening to all the RAW files before I begin my select edits. For some reason my "paste edit settings" is greyed out when I have multiple images selected. I'm assuming this may be some sort of user error on my part, there is no way a professional photo editing tool would not allow the use of base settings applied to a group of photos. However even when I go back to "add photos", there is no option to apply a preset on import like in the old Lightroom? Adobe please help! LRCC is obviously useless to me if I have to Ctrl/Copy Ctrl/Paste 1200 times a day... Thank you,

Unfortunately, you can only paste edit settings to one photo at a time right now. you can select multiple photos in the Edit view with the filmstrip below it, but even then 'Paste' will only result in the most selected photo getting changed.

Syncing changes across images - This is one of the most important features of Lightroom.  Until this is implemented, it would be difficult to use this for a lot of professionals. Also, autosync has been a great tool for us to post crop photos.  In an ideal world, we could continue using the Lightroom classic version of this or adapt Lightroom Classic to allow for making these kinds of changes.

Please bring the sync/apply preset to all selected images.

I simply cannot find a way to do this, either on mobile and in the new desktop version. I can copy and paste settings between individual images, bot not for multiple images at the same time.

My use case: timelapses on the go. I prefer shooting individual frames and putting them all together into a single timelapse. My old workflow when I was still using Lr desktop (classic) was to edit a single frame, sync settings, and export everything.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Lightroom CC: How do I sync photo fixes to other photos in an album?.

In Lightroom Classic 2015, you could make edits to one photo in the catalog and then apply the same fixes to a series of photos within the catalog (album in CC). This feature is either well hidden (and there is absolutely to help for it), or the feature has been dropped. Where is the sync feature and if it is gone ... BRING IT BACK!

I didn't mean to interrupt your post in mid conversation but merged it with others who want the same feature. It gets more attention that way. Feel free to reply here if you have any more questions.

I just want to add my voice to having this feature added, I think a cloud based sync and so on is a natural progression and I really like that with the new Lightroom. But not being able to paste adjustments across multiple shots at once is ridiculous, so I can't quite use it efficiently until that feature is there. So yeah, +1 for that feature. :)

This is unacceptable as a working professional to not be able to sync settings to multiple images. Please fix this in an update Adobe if you want this program to be the future over LR Classic.

This is crazy. I've been able to work with all the other stripped down features of LRCC so far, but this is an extreme limitation IMHO.

Yes, please, please, please, please add partial copy/paste and synchronization. Partial copy/paste of development settings exists on the mobile, so it should at least exist on the desktop. And either synchronization of "paste development settings on the entire set of selected photos" would do...

I find it hard to believe that Adobe have missed such an important feature. Luckily, I'm still in the trial period of using Lightroom CC. Will probably opt out at the end of it if multiple edits aren't brought back.

This feature seems like one that should be very simple to implement, and is sorely needed. Upvoted!

Even if I can't AutoSync (super useful, don't know why it's not there!) I'd settle for being able to Paste Edit Settings to _all selected images_ in the meantime!

Yes! Please bring back copy settings and paste to all selected. super crucial for all of us who like to apply a certain look to a collection, especially useful for wedding photographers and others who do large batches of client work. Thank you!

Adding my voice to this request. It is painful to have to manually apply settings across a group of images. Not only should I be able to shift select a range and apply common Edit Settings to them, but I should also be able to do the same to a folder or album. Lastly, keyboard shortcut for Paste Settings. Thanks for making this happen.
