Allow me to select multiple photos and apply stars & ratings to the selected photos. Frequently I like to mark all photos as 3-stars, then filter on >= 3 stars. I then start setting photos I don't like to 2 stars to remove them from the visible set. As it is I can't mark all photos as 3 stars in one batch, I instead have to use the desktop to do it.

Agreed, I'd love to see that too.  I often do my first pass as flags, and then give them 1 star and mark up from there.

Yes, would love to be able to flag multiple photos at once for rejection. Makes the first pass so much faster.

Ability to flag/rate multiple photos at once would be really great for my workflow

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Lightroom CC for mobile: Impossible to batch rate photos.

It is currently impossible to change flag / star information on multiple photos.

I get the feeling no one is really using LR mobile?  I'm surprised how this isn't voted on more.

Loads of people are using it. We just get used to limitations, and a lot of people only flag/rate one by one.

How is this still not possible after three years?

And you’d think Adobe would prioritize this kind of basic select and change many at once, with their push to LR CC.

I guess they’re too busy spending their record profits on something else than building the products.

I would really like to see this too. It’s really frustrating not being able to do this.

You cant quickly flag images from grid view on iPad. Feature should be added for desktop parity

The official blog post says "This functionality is being worked on for iOS and will be made available as soon as possible."

Doesn’t seem to be in today’s update which finally gave iPads copy/paste of editing parameters into multiple images. Why is iOS behind? Who uses an android tablet for serious work? Adobe recognizes this with photoshop for iPad released today, but for Lightroom, the iPad continues to lag behind. Also, the integration between LR and PS for iPad is lacking. No way I can see to "edit in” PS for iPad from LR on iPad.

Different teams take responsibility for different features Thomas, and it just happened that the Android team were leading the copy/paste one. Multi copy/paste just came to iOS, and multi info editing is sure to follow, as it did with Android.

Photoshop for iPad is a 1.0 product, so it is very early days, but I've written about how to pass files back and forth here, until more direct integration is developed.
