With  the 10 images on the filmstrip- This is my method:

1)  Edit one image and Copy settings [Ctrl+C]

2) [Ctrl+A] to select all on the filmstrip.

3) [Ctrl+V] to Paste settings

Or the three-dot icon [...] provides a menu-

Done: writes the parametric instructions you've made. Dismisses ACR. 

Open: Does this but renders the image with those edits. 
Note, what images you select when using Open plays a role of course. 

Move your cursor over each button (one seen below) for more details.

Got it Rob, actually now even easier than before I think.. as long as you select all first,  and then do an adjustment on any, I think it then applies it to all right away right? And did not do that in years past.

New issue: While I see the changes on my computer to the 10 jpegs I lightened with ACR. If I dropbox them to someone else, those images still look very dark.

ACR alone will not change the image file that you might "dropbox".

You must either 'Save' the edited image from ACR,  (icon with the down arrow-)

2021-11-30 08_22_32-Window.jpg

or continue to 'Open' it in Photoshop and save a derivative file from Ps.

thanks Rob, what does that all mean?  if I change everything in ACR, then I'm assuming it knows I want all images saved with my changes..?

Yes, "it knows" - "it" being ACR and Photoshop, BUT it saves those edits in metadata only! until you Save or Export a derivative 'copy'.

 

-A raw file will receive a sidecar .XMP file with the edits.

-A Raster RGB file (JPG TIF PSD & DNG) will have the metadata embedded within the file.

Adobe Apps- Lightroom, Photoshop, Bridge- will all 'Show' the edits applied to the original file, as those Apps 'understand the metadata',  but other image viewers will NOT see the 'edit' metadata.

 

Your edits still are not yet 'Applied' to the original image until you [SAVE] or [EXPORT] a derivative image. And you do this as mentioned above- 1) Save from ACR, or 2) Open and Export from Photoshop. You must do this for others to view your images as you 'edited'.

You didn't burn the parametric edits into the JPEGs. Nor should you (lots of data loss due to the data being a JPEG but that's another story.)

Click Open and Save, you would see the edits.

Yes you will see the adjusted preview in Bridge. (as I said- Adobe Apps recognize the ACR adjustments)

If Bridge is showing filenames & badges then the "Slider" icon badge indicates an image has ACR adjustments!

But if you view this image in a File Browser it will still appear as camera 'original'.

2021-12-01 13_31_07-CAMERA SCANS.jpg

OK, so now you have THREE ways to create a JPG that has your edits applied-

I have told you of 1) and 2)!

1) [Save] from the ACR UI.

2) [Open] the file through ACR to Photoshop and [Save a Copy] or [Export as JPG]

and now the third-

3) [Save] a JPG   of the selected image in BRIDGE (which also uses the CR 'Save' function)

MENU: File > Export To > Custom Export

Rob I tried custom expost, quickest of your methods to do batch export, start export, yet nothing happened, nothing.  That save button next to dropdown should I click that too, confusing interface. I kept it on default save to original locaiton.

The (SAVE) button is for Saving a PRESET. A Preset (that you will give a name to) will remember your settings for Format, Location, Resize, etc.

We need to 'get with the times' and understand that many editing Apps now use the term "EXPORT" for any function that creates a derivative file.

WHen you want JPGs from your files- You Export from Lightroom. You Export from Photoshop. You Export from Bridge.

So now we have 4 ways to 'Export' a JPG! It may depend on your Version of Bridge.

You can use  Bridge Tools > Photoshop > Image Processor,  But this opens an instance of Photoshop. Using Bridge 'File > Export To >Custom Export' does not require Photoshop to open.  "Best" is for you to decide 🙂

Being image processor so easy then perhaps that's way to go.
