Updates to Lightroom CC — Sync Presets, Copy/Paste Edits, and Enhanced Sharing 

I’m excited to announce several new features and product enhancements in today’s updates to Lightroom CC including:

Automatic syncing of Presets and profiles between desktop and mobile devices.

Application of edit settings to to multiple images at once using copy/paste options.

Custom sharing options for Albums including the ability to download images and include metadata and location information.

Create, sync, import, and manage presets and profiles across multiple devices.

Learn how to create a preset based on edited settings, quickly import and sync profiles and presets, and manage profiles and presets on individual devices in the video below:

Note: when importing profiles and presets, all three ways of importing (File > Import Profiles & Presets, Import Presets (using the Preset panel) and Import Profiles (using the Profile browser) import both Profiles and Presets, so it’s really just comes down to which method is more convenient for you. Note: one benefit of using the Import option in either the Preset panel or the Profile browser is that a progress bar is visible when importing.

Copy and Paste specific edit settings to multiple images. 

To ensure consistent edits as well as speed up your workflow, you can now copy and paste edits to multiple images at one time. To copy settings, using one of the following methods:

  • Photo > Edit Copy Settings ­[Command + C (Mac) | Control + C (Win)], to copy the  current state of all of your edits (minus the tools and geometry options).
  • Photo > Chose Edit Settings to Copy [Command + Shift + C (Mac) | Control + Shift +C (Win)], to choose which edit settings to copy. Note: within the Copy Settings dialog, use the Select menu to quickly select All, Modified, Default, or None and refine as needed.

To paste settings, using one of the following methods: 

  • Photo > Paste Edit Settings [Shift + V (Mac) | Shift +V (Win)] to paste settings to individual images.
  • Command + Shift + V (Mac) | Control + Shift +V (Win) to paste settings to all selected images.

Note: settings can be pasted to multiple images in bothin Grid and Detail views. 

Additional control when sharing albums. 

When sharing Albums (Edit > Albums > Share Albums or, right-click on an album and choose Share Album), use the new Preferences options to enable/disable Allow Downloads, Show Metadata, and Show Location data (if available). You can modify these options at any time, and the share will be updated immediately.

Placing Guides in the Center of a Photoshop Document

Update! Click here (Grid, Guides, and Ruler Shortcuts in Photoshop CC) to discover my favorite tips related to Grids, Guides, and Rulers in Photoshop CC.

To quickly set guides in the center of any size and/or resolution Photoshop document, set the Preferences for  Units & Rulers to Percentage, show your Rulers (Command (Mac) / Control (Win) + R), and record an action dragging guides to the 50%  marks. (You can also select View > New Guide to place the guide at the 50% mark instead of dragging it out from the rulers.)

Image Processor

If you need to save a number of images to a different different format (PSD, TIF and/or JPEG), Photoshop has a feature called Image Processor. Although you can find it under File > Scripts > Image Processor, this method requires that you select a folder of images. If you prefer to only convert a selection of images, begin by selecting the desired images in Bridge and then choose Tools > Photoshop Image Processor (note that you can also select all of the images in a folder (or collection) using this method by not selecting any files (if no files are selected, Bridge will assume that you want to process all of them). In the Image Processor dialog box, choose a destination folder, and a File Type (or types, you can process files to multiple formats at once) with any additional options such as Resize to Fit and Compression etc.. You can even choose to run an action after Image Processor batch converts the files. Of course all of this can be done through actions, but Image Processor is a simple and powerful way to quickly convert images without having to know how to create Actions and run the Batch command.
