This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom: Applying Auto Tone to a batch of photos loses subsequent develop settings
- set basic tone roughly for one photo - for example highlights and black clipping
- sync develop setting of highlights and black clipping to all photos
result: more than half of the photos only get auto tone adjustments because the settings are not actually written until you open the photo and if there are more than one adjustment only first one is applied.
Also, there are several idle cores in my processor - why not use them when there's something to do like applying settings? Also I have several gigabytes memory unused - why not use it to save actual 1:1 previews? The program should write preview images into memory constantly so I wouldn't have to wait when proceeding to the next or previous image. At least this should be an option.
