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.

Assigning a Download Location for Lightroom CC Mobile Images

When capturing photographs using the Lightroom CC mobile capture app, the photographs are stored in a the Lightroom app until they have time to be uploaded to the cloud. After the photographs are uploaded, launching Lightroom CC on the desktop, will automatically start the images downloading to a default location on your local machine. You can change the default location by selecting Preferences > Lightroom Mobile. In the Location area, click Choose… and navigate to your preferred location. Note: you can also have Lightroom automatically create subfolders based on capture date.

You must be a member of either the Creative Cloud for Photography or Creative Cloud member to access syncing services.

Deleting Synced Photos from Collections in Lightroom

When deleting photos from a synced collection, Lightroom displays the following warning dialog:

If you want to remove the photo(s) from the collection, yet still have them accessible via the All Synced Photographs view on your mobile devices, choose “Yes”. If you want Lightroom to remove the photo(s) from the collection as well as from All Synced Photograph, click “No”.

To set Lightroom’s default behavior (and skip this dialog), check the “Don’t show again” checkbox, and select your option. From then on, Lightroom will do whatever you elected to do this time.  For example, if you click “No” with the “don’t show again” checkbox checked, then it will do “No” in the future, without asking you.

Note: you can always reset this warning in Lightroom’s Preferences > General > Prompts: Reset all warning dialogs.

Sync Files with Last Used Settings in Lightroom

How to Synchronize Upright Lens Corrections in Lightroom

Often I have found that I want to apply perspective correction to multiple files at once using the Upright feature in Lightroom 5. But depending on the results I want to achieve, it’s best to know that there are two different ways of accomplishing this.

In the first situation, you might have a series of unrelated images that all need to have their own set of perspective corrections made to them. In this case, the easiest way to apply Upright would be to:

• Select all of the desired files in the Develop Module.

• Enable the Auto Sync feature (by toggling the switch to the left of the Sync… button).

•In the Lens Correction Basic panel, click the desired Upright mode (Auto, Level, Vertical, or Full) in order to apply the perspective correction to all selected files

With this method, each image is analyzed individually and the perspective corrected.

If you prefer not to use Auto Sync, you can select the first file and apply the desired Upright mode. Then, use the shortcut Command + C (Mac) | Control + C (Win) and check Upright Mode. Note: if the Upright Mode option is grayed out, that’s because the Upright transformations option is checked. Uncheck Upright Transformation and check Upright Mode instead. Then, select the other files to which you want the perspective correction applied and press Command + V (Mac) | Control + V (Win) to paste the corrections.

Or, if this is something you do all of the time, you can create a preset by selecting Develop > New Preset and enabling the “Upright Mode” option. 

In the second situation, you might have a series of related images – such as a sequence of bracketed exposures or a set of time lapse images for which you need the same exact numeric perspective corrections made to each image. In this scenario, you don’t want to run the upright analysis on each individual image because, due to robustness issues, Upright is very likely to return a slightly different result on each of the images in the selection. Instead, what you really want to do is have the upright analysis be performed on one of the images, and then have the result of that analysis (the numeric transformation) copied and applied  to the other images in the set. In order to do this,  copy the settings with Command + C (Mac) | Control + C (Win) and in the Copy Setting dialog, choose “Upright Transforms”. Then, select the other files that you want the perspective correction applied to and choose Command + V (Mac) | Control + V (Win) to paste the corrections.

You could choose to create a preset by selecting Develop > New Preset and selecting the “Upright Transforms” option but I’m not sure that this preset would be as useful (when applied to additional images in the future)  because the numeric values are locked into it.

Pasting Settings in Lightroom’s Develop Module

In Lightroom’s Develop module, when you choose Settings > Copy Settings or use the shortcut Command + Shift + C (Mac) | Control  + Shift + C (Win), Lightroom copies the setting that you select (in the subsequent Copy Settings dialog), to the clipboard and holds on to them. Therefore, as you move through your photo shoot, you can easily paste those setting to any additional image(s). This might be a great way, for example,  to paste a subset of attributes such as a vignette or color toning to images while moving through a shoot, and still be able to use Sync (or Auto Sync) to apply other modifications.

Lightroom – What is the difference between Previous, Sync, Copy and Paste and Auto Sync

After making changes to an image in the Develop Module, selecting another image and clicking “Previous” applies ALL of the changes made to  the previous image to the current image, whereas clicking “Sync’”allows you to choose which of the changes that were made to the first image should be applied to  the current image.

Clicking on “Copy…” displays the Copy Settings dialog where you can select which attributes to copy. Clicking Paste will paste only those attributes that were copied.

Selecting multiple images and selecting Auto Sync will apply all changes (from that point forward) to all selected files.
