Quick Develop in Library

Is there any way to select a set of images in library mode and automatically increase or decrease the any of the options available in Quick Develop for the entire selection. A single step Sync.

 

I work on a calibrated system. Depending on the set of pictures I may use different calibrations for exposure, contrast... Infrequently, I need to select an entire set of pictures that were all processed 1/3 stop too low or high. Each picture may have different postprocessing settings but they are all 1/3 stop too dark. I want to be able to select the entire set and, with one click, increase the or decrease the whole set from Quick Develop. Is this possible. My tests indicate that it I have to do this one picture at a time 😞

Just one thing to add: like most things, when attempting to apply changes to a set of selected images in the Library, you have to be using the Grid view. If you are in Loupe mode with multiple images selected in the Filmstrip, only the single image in the Loupe will change.

Hello Jim,Thank you. I checked this in both grid view and loupe view and confirmed you answer. Is this the way automatic syncing works in for everything in Library mode? To me, this is a bug. Thank you all for your response. Jim Palik

I just tried it on my Windows 10 system, and if I highlight multiple images and then make an exposure adjustment that adjustment is applied to all images. In the develop module, if you highlight all the images and then enable autosync it will also work in that module as well.

No, it really isn't a bug, it's definitely the intended behaviour.  If it worked the way you expect it to work, there's simply too much risk of a user inadvertently making changes to a bunch of selected but off-screen images when adjusting an image in loupe view in the Library module. However, if you do want it to work that way, then Adobe have provided the option to do so, but you deliberately have to turn AutoSync on first (just as you'd have to do that in Develop if you want to automatically sync changes to all selected images when you adjust the image in the Loupe). Just remember to turn AutoSync off again when you're done.

Please note that with Auto Sync in the Develop module, such an adjustment will not be relative, like it will be in Quick Develop, but absolute. In other words: if you set the exposure of the selected image to +0.3, then all other images will be set to +0.3 as well. If some images were already adjusted and have an initial Exposure setting that is already other than zero, then the +0.3 will not be added to this setting like it will in the Quick Develop panel, but overruled and set to +0.3.
