Lightroom mobile: Ability to sync adjustments to multiple photos at once

I think LRM is great and use it to cull and edit all of my photos. As I import into LR (desktop) from my memory card, I add the photos to a new collection that is synced to LRM. I can do 80 - 90% of my editing on my iPad Pro 12.9 inch with Apple pencil. I do review all photos later on my desktop to ensure everything looks good before I print, export or publish. As I said, I am very happy with LRM but would really like to see the ability to sync adjustments to multiple photos at once. It would reduce the time required on my desktop and make mobile editing more efficient.

Still not available for iOS it seems. The May release has tutorials, training, a new Texture brush (nice!), and Group Albums where you can set permissions to access. All good stuff, but no paste to multiple photos it seems.

Actually the tutorials and inspirations, the main new features are totally unnecessary and superfluous. Textures is nice, but the workflow should be the priority and seems the project managers simply don’t get it. And why would one prioritize Android tablets? Is that where Adobe sees the future. No serious photographer would. I have been a long fan of Adobe and have a full subscription but I am getting fed up at the lack of progress in making the mobile app useful, and dealing with the integration mess they made with CC and Classic. How come no 2 screen capability in desktop LR CC, no printing. Why am I forced to use two barely compatible approaches? This was understandable a year ago at the beginning of an apparent transition to CC, but the problems simply are not getting fixed. I could rant on, but it seems that the people who control my future with Adobe are bean counting marketing people, who can’t actually count beans, and not the real photography experts that created PS and LR. Grump.

It works on my android. I guess they will test it on android first and then implement it on other OS. At least the development team is moving forward.

Omg it better be! LR mobile is practically useless aside from letting me see my pics and edit a one off if needed

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Lightroom Mobile: Paste/Apply settings to multiple images at once.

Please allow us to copy settings from one image and then paste them to a selection of images. At the moment I have to copy then swipe tap a few times per image to paste one by one.

This feature should have been present from day one.

Only on Android so far, they've confirmed they're working on iOS. I've posted instructions on your other thread.

It gives me anxiety that I can't paste edit settings from one photo to another on my iPad. The fact that I have to wait to go onto my iMac to do this is ludicrous. It ruins the entire workflow and my creative process.

Yes. This has been incredibly painful for me as I’ve been traveling for a year, with my iPad as my primary editing tool. I also have a laptop, but it’s not suitable for most of my travel conditions and so I rarely take it with me. Sometimes, it proves faster to go back to my hotel, sync a change across my photos, then return to the field, rather than attempt to continue making edits one-by-one on my iPad.

Feature request: would love to be able to batch apply settings to multiple photos simultaneously in mobile iOS version of Lightroom. This would be SOOOO helpful and I’m sure I’m not the first person to think this would be great to have. Thank you so much

This has not been implemented in iOS as of Sept 9, 2019. You can select multiple images to export or move, but not "Paste Settings..." to. You have to do it one photo at a time go to the next photo, clicking '...' (but only if you're on the edit settings dialogue, otherwise this menu won't show up (bad UX)), click 'Paste Settings...', then repeat to the next one, again and again and again, for hundreds of photos.

This is beyond frustrating as I have invested in Lightroom CC across my devices, from software to hardware to peripherals, and this completely destroys the experience for me.

This has been marked as implemented but it is not actually implemented, this is a critical workflow feature and it’s a joke that it’s not there and wasn’t there since day 1. Out of all the complex features Lightroom has this is a rather simple one that would be easy to put in.

Adobe where is the implementation?! It is 16/10/19 and still nowhere to be seen. Such a fundamental feature which should be implemented at the product launch and yet 3 years after this is requested we still see nothing. I can safely represent the whole community in saying we're very disappointed. Not happy Adobe. Not happy at all! Get to work and stop making false claims about the delivery of this feature...

To clarify: 

This feature has been implemented on the Desktop and Android clients for the Lightroom Ecosystem. It is currently planned for an upcoming release for Lightroom's iOS Clients (iPad and iPhone).

This is fantastic, thank you. Couldn't come soon enough! I'm about to do a big batch of edits into November and need a more professional workflow that allows me to focus on my iPad and not my iMac.

Rikk, thank you much for the update. Is there a timeline for when this update for i(Pad)OS is expected to be available? E.g., this quarter? Next year? Also, as a general rule, should we expect Android to lead i(Pad)OS in feature delivery?

Each team takes the lead on different features, so some things come to iOS first and then Android, and vice versa.

It still seems that 6 months is a long time to wait for porting it over to ios.

In the future I would suggest to hold back features until both versions ios and android are ready.

Working as a professional photographer and not having the ability to batch edit on the iphone or at least on the ipad is more than frustrating. It looks like Adobe is ignoring the iPad as a serious work tool. Where is Photoshop? Over a year now since they announced it. And why are companies like VSCO are capable of bringing these features already years ago. Keep focused adobe - its about making lifes easier than creating pain.

I am baffled, I just got an iPad and edited one event. The fact that you can only paste general adjustments one by one is unacceptable.  I also do not see a way to enter a caption to a whole album. I need to be able to select multiple photos and enter a caption at once. It is a requirement for most editorial clients. I like how fast Lightroom mobile is, but it lacks basic features for news / editorial photographers. Any updates on this. I need batch edit of image settings and of metadata.

It's crazy how Adobe likes to market themselves as on the professionals side, but a simple feature request that has been added to other ecosystems has not been added to iOS. Baffled.......
