I have a preset for sharpening. When I select multiple images and apply this develop preset there is a weird behaviour. The preset is applied but also all other images get develop settings from the active image in the selection.

 

This started happening in 10.4. I use this regularly and it never behaved like this.

why aren't big bugs like this hotfixed? Why does it take (already) more than a month before a patch is released? Why are game developers able to release patches so much faster than Adobe? People's jobs don't depend on playing games, yet those companies are so much more responsive than what we see here... why?

When I select a User Preset sometimes the image is Cropped and sometimes it is transformed. This happens frequently but not all the time.

Thanks!

In Develop, is the menu item Settings > Enable Auto Sync checked?  There is a bug with Auto Sync and presets.  If it is checked, uncheck it and I'll provide a workaround.

There's a recent bug where applying a preset with Auto Sync enabled copies all of the settings from the target photo, not just preset's settings:

https://community.adobe.com/t5/lightroom-classic-bugs/p-lightroom-classic-applying-develop-preset-to... 

 

A workaround: Go to Library Grid view (g). Select the desired photos and then apply the preset using the Saved Preset menu in the Quick Develop panel in the right column.

The Author stated “ When I go to the Settings in Develope the option for Enable Auto Sync is grayed out.“

Do you have multiple images selected?

See the screen captures Sync and Auto Sync you must have multiple images selected.

Auto Sync on.Auto Sync on.Sync active.Sync active.

"When I go to the Settings in Develope the option for Enable Auto Sync is grayed out"

 

That's because you have only one image selected. In Library or in the filmstrip, select multiple images and then go to Develop.  The option should not be greyed out now.  Is it checked?  The bug referred to above only occurs when you have multiple images selected and Enable Auto Sync is checked.

Issue: things get messy when applying preset to multiple images from multiple cameras

 

Lightroom Version Number: 10.4
OS Version Number: Windows 10pro build 19042.1237

 

Steps to reproduce:

1. select multiple images from multiple cameras (experienced with around 250 from 4 cameras)
2. apply preset to all images with auto sync on (preset modifies: Basic: only vibrance and saturation, then some values on tone curve, HSL, effects) - profile is ISO adaptive


Expected result: your preset gets applyed to those setting only, and you start working happily
Actual result: your preset messes up: White balance, profile, noise reduction (luminance), and maybe some others that I didn't notice. Then you get frustrated, downgrade to Lightroom v10.3 and all works smoothly again...

As you can see in the bug report, a straightforward workaround is to use Library's Quick Develop panel to apply the preset, rather than Auto Sync.

Not sure if this is a setting or a glitch, but when I auto-synch and apply a preset to multiple photos it also crops them. This is really slowing down my work flow. Would appreciate any advice.

My thoughts on this on this issue is as follows, when you have multiple files selected with Auto-Sync activated do not apply presets, profiles, auto tone etc and only use individual edit features.

To be sure I will not utilize the Auto-Sync function until this rectified.

I'm dealing with the same issue. It is KILLING my work flow. I was on with tech support for about two hours and they couldn't figure it out. They are now saying a supervisor will call me. I've done EVERYTHING and they can't figure it out. Any resolution or just frustrating work arounds?!

I am having an issue with this too. I had some saved presets for various amounts of sharpening I use - they't applying a crop and rotate at the moment. When saving the preset, or "update with current settings", there is no option to select or deselect crop.

It sounds like you're applying the preset to many photos by using Auto Sync.  There's an outstanding bug with that:

A straightforward workaround: Go to Library Grid view (g). Select the desired photos and then apply the preset using the Saved Preset menu in the Quick Develop panel in the right column.

Just a bad hunch, should result in an answer if No, select two photos, is Auto Sync on?

If so, turn it iff, deslect the photos, select one photo, see what happens.
