Auto Sync Bug in 10.4

I'm having an extremely frustrating bug in LR Classic 10.4 where, if I have auto sync enabled, and I make a change to the current photo, it syncs ALL of the settings to the other selected photos. In other words, if I adjust the white balance, it not only syncs WB to the other photso but also crop, exposure, etc. It's basically making auto sync unusable. I closed and restarted LR but it's still happening.

Wow, this is weird and even crazy hope it gets sorted out ASAP. I will make a test on a small group of images.

Does this happen to everyone or is it random?

Only when using a preset?

On both Mac and Win OS?

Does it get sorted by a preferences reset?

I am not seeing any problem on my OS with respect to the auto-sync.

When you select multiple images and turn on the auto-sync remember to turn it off when you have completed the task, before you select a single image. If you do not do this auto-sync will become active automatically when you select multiple images again.

My test (in 2nd link) was to pick three images that were of the same scene, just so I could easily see differences. Selected three images that had no edits. Selected just the first image, I moved the exposure slider full right, crazy over exposure, then I selected all three, First image most selected, turned Auto Sync on,  went and selected a B&W preset. As expected, all three turned B&W, not as expected, all three were over exposed. Looked at History panel, first image had the exposure slider noted, and the preset noted, other two, just the preset.

@GoldingD, Ok I am seeing exactly what you indicate. However if I click the Black & White in the color setting from the Basic panel it functions properly. The use of a Preset is messing up the process!

Wow this needs to get fixed. ASAP.

Maybe avoid using a Preset with auto-sync could be a workaround.

Have you tried going back to a previous version to see if it works?

Was just doing that test to help another member. Was trying to understand issue.

 

I absolutely detest using presets. Especially artistic presets, as in someone else's process. Normally I use exactly one preset, Zeroed. Two things I accomplish at Import, rename photos to YYYMMDD_hhmmss, and Zeroed. (to eliminate Adobe's obsession with default sharpening at beginning of edits)

I agree I have never used presets via auto-sync but do not know if it should work.  Obviously Rick thinks it a bug. This is something that need attention, I have seen users getting “stung” with auto-sync being applied across their full Catalog working in the Total pictures folder.

Just saying.

Yep, I used the B&W  preset as to accomplish something obvious.

I am experiencing a similar issue in LR Classic 10.4 that sounds related.  I have presets for individual settings like shadows and highlights and if I apply one of those to an image and then make additional changes to that same image like cropping which I dont have a preset for and then go to a second image and chose one of the same presets that I chose for the first image it will then apply all of the changes I made to the first image, not just the preset value.  I have rolled back to 10.3 and the issue is gone.

I am dealing with the exact same issue with LR 10.4. 

 

Auto Sync on, and apply a change (say exposure)... but it also applies every other change made from the selected main photo (like crop and white balance) to all others selected in the group. Very annoying.
