1.
I work with a list of different presets for wedding pictures and i miss the option to highlight a bunch pictures and click on the preset for all pictures.

2.
An option for preset shortcuts. So you can go thru the pictures with the arrow keys and assign with the shortcuts the presets.

1. There are two ways to do that - using Library Grid and the preset selection in Quick Develop, and using Develop autosync.

Working in AutoSync mode means each preset is a one click operation. Maybe you're mistaking it for Sync?

There are some plugins that may help.

Consider Paddy for Lightroom (Windows-only), or knobroom for Mac.
I'm not sure if Tim Armes Keyboard Tamer will do the presets, but may be worth checking...

Also there's another commercial/expensive plugin that may do just what you want, but I don't remember the name - it was recently posted on this forum though.

I would love to see user definable keyboard shortcuts for different adjustment brushes... That would seriously cut down on my post production time!

Well, admins, thank you for merging my topic with this one... Although I don't think this is quite the same topic... I know Paddy for LIghtroom seems to do what I want, but unfortunately it's PC only... I don't think Knobroom has this functionality yet... And again: I would really like to be able to access adjustment brush presets via a key short cut.

Ah - *brush* presets. Indeed, this topic is about reglar dev presets.

The topic is primarily about assigning custom shortcuts. More specifically - to presets. Even more specifically - to develop presets. I thought it's reasonable to to stop on the second level out of three. (At first, I thought about merging both topics to the cross-app Custom keyboard shortcuts topic).

OK - fair enough for me.

So, now that we've established that my topic is actually different from this one what should I do? Resubmit it? I don't think I can un-merge it, can I?

Did we? I thought we did the opposite... :)
