This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom CC: Ability to copy/sync settings/adjustments across a group of photos

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!

Hi Jerry,

Thanks for the feedback.  Right now, Lightroom CC for desktop has Copy/Paste of edit settings, but no ability to sync settings like Lightroom Classic.  We've heard many requests for this and it is definitely something we want to add in the future.

And why did they take it out? That was really stupid.

They didn't take it out - it's still in Classic. CC is a new app, and they just didn't put this feature in yet.

Copy is grayed out when I select a photo, so how am I supposed to copy settings?

Where did the export or publish option go? I use Lightroom to add watermarks, resize, and rename files. That is gone??? I am going to delete this version and reload the desktop version, it had so many options that disappeared from Lightroom CC. Adobe took a great program and broke it to the point that it is unusable.

You're looking for Lightroom Classic Jerry. It's the latest version of the one you've been using for the last few years. The one you've loaded is a new app based around cloud storage and access from multiple computers. It's just a baby, so it's doesn't have all of the features of Classic.

As Victoria said, Lightroom CC is a new app.  The features you're looking for are still in Lightroom Classic.  Some of those may get added to Lightroom CC in time.  

To copy settings in Lightroom CC, make sure you are in detail (aka Loupe) view.  Copy doesn't work from grid view.
