To apply a change to all images in a stack in Lightroom, the stack must first be expanded. Otherwise, changes will only be applied to the image on the top of the stack.

Below, the stack and adjacent image are selected and a one star rating is applied.Here the stack and adjacent image are selected and a one star rating is applied

Expanding the stack reveals that only the image on the top of the stack (and the adjacent image) had the rating applied15bStack

To apply the one star rating to all of the images in the stack, first expand the stack and select the images.To apply the one star rating to all of the images in the stack, first expand the stack and select the images.

    Stack or no stack the procedure is the same…

      Paulo, actually it’s not. if the stack is closed, then only the top image is modified, you have to open the stack and select the files inside the stack in order to make changes to them. Sorry if the post wasn’t clear.

    This behaviour feels really unintuitive to me. I stack images together if they are similar/identical/taken under same conditions. The natural would be to apply the changes to all photos in the stack. But perhaps others use it differently?

      The problem is that we don’t want to make changes to images that aren’t visible. This follows the same logic in grid vs Loupe view – when making changes in grid view, all (visible) selected images are changed, when in Loupe view, even if multiple images are selected only the most selected image is changed.
