Lightroom: Batch Cropping

I love that they have added batching editing to Lightroom CC (I’m trying to ditch Lr Classic and this is a huge help!). But! On Mobile, we still do not have the ability to do a batch crop along with tone/color edits. This would be amazing! Otherwise, I have to wait for everything to upload from my shoot, so that I can finish the edit on my Mac. Unnecessarily time consuming! I’m trying to adapt my workflow to the Cloud, but snags like this are making it very hard.

Am I misunderstanding what you're saying? Crop is one of the options you can paste, along with the tone/color edits. It's hiding under the Tools option when you select what to copy.

It does batch crop for me, as it's supposed to. Are you sure you're doing it correctly:

1. Select image, make the crop.
2. Shift+Ctrl/Cmd+C to choose the edits you wish to copy.
3. Ensure Crop under the Tools drop-down is checked, plus any other settings you want to batch apply, then click on the Copy button.
4. Then select the images that you want to apply the copied settings to.
5. Then Shift+Ctrl/Cmd+V will paste the copied settings, including the crop, to the selected images.

it won't even copy the crop to one image let alone multiple. I'm using a PC, dunno if you're on a Mac, that could be it.

I've got both a Mac and a PC, and it works the same on both. Can you post a short video showing how you are trying to copy the crop to other images, so that we can see if there's a problem with the process that you're using.

oh, it's the flipping of images that won't batch crop in CC, Mobile and Desktop. It works fine with Classic CC but not CC.  Specifically the horizontal flip.
