I think LRM is great and use it to cull and edit all of my photos. As I import into LR (desktop) from my memory card, I add the photos to a new collection that is synced to LRM. I can do 80 - 90% of my editing on my iPad Pro 12.9 inch with Apple pencil. I do review all photos later on my desktop to ensure everything looks good before I print, export or publish. As I said, I am very happy with LRM but would really like to see the ability to sync adjustments to multiple photos at once. It would reduce the time required on my desktop and make mobile editing more efficient.

This is almost a deal breaker for me on mobile. I sometimes want to apply the same settings to *hundreds* of raw photos at once when making timelapses from my DSLR. This is easy to do from Lightroom for Desktop. Doesn't seem possible for Lightroom for iOS, although from a UX perspective it'd be super easy. 

There is already the option to "Select a range" when importing photos into Lightroom. Please give us the same ability, but then to apply our settings to the selected range!

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Global adjustments missing in Lightroom mobile.

Is there not some simple way to copy settings of one photo to the rest of the album? No global controls? Something as simple as changing all photos white balance at once, or sharpness or vignette? One photo at a time? Roflmao. Seriously do you know how long that takes on hundreds and thousands of photos?

um, so it lets you copy and paste settings to each photo individually but not all at once? and It also lets you use the settings from last photo to next. So All the coding is done there, it’s a simple button and variable to allow you to paste settings to all photos or a group of photos but no? Come on adobe, really? Did anyone test fly this thing? Lol

And dont get me started on presets, and why we can’t create our own. < FACEPALM > Wow imagine that. And if we could do that, well then we might also be able to simply import our photos with a preset and save a ton of time. But well then that would just be too convenient huh?

Can we please get the abitly to copy and apply settings/ adjustments ( your grade) from one image to a selection of multiple image selected in the thumbnail view.
- much the same as delete or move images function works.

Doing it one by one is killing me! especially when I’ve got 200 images to do it to.

And then maybe get user presets to be able to be saved as well , so we can pick from out personal saved ones and copy and apply to say a whole set of newly added images.

Unbelievably, I just found out that they also removed this feature with the latest desktop version as well. So at this point, I'm finally giving a hard look at alternatives to Adobe products.

It's still in the latest desktop version of Lightroom Classic, as it always has been. It's not yet been added to the new baby Lightroom CC desktop app.

Yes, I'm aware of that now. But they provide no indication if/when it will be in their new version. Let's be abundantly clear, this feature is what made Lightroom what it is today for *many* users. Without batch processing, I'd have just kept using Photoshop. 

Without this feature, they shouldn't even release a new version, let alone market it. I suspect as more users "accidentally" upgrade to the new version like I did and discover the lack of this feature (and others), there's just going to be more and more noise on these forums.
