Please Adobe - make such an option. To just completely disable this absolutely useless for most feature. I want LRC to never show these white areas, at all. I am an architectute photograph, i sometimes have a thousand pics a day to run through LRC and a lot of them Auto align with white parts all over. I know a can make a preset for this to be on, but so much simpler just to disable this. Thanks!

Ditto! I've been looking for a way to do this for years. I almost never want to not constrain the crop in the Transform section or in the crop tool. Needing to click on the constrain crop option for every single photo is painful.

Please give us an option to turn on (and off) Constrain Crop by default. I frequently end up with small white edges (from rotating, transforming and HDR merges) and then need to either crop off the white edge or turn on "constrain crop" which stays on only for that image. I'd like it turned on ALL of the time and that is not currently possible.

I include activating 'Constrain Crop' in a general-purpose Develop preset that is routinely called and applied by my import preset. So this costs zero effort and is not an extra step to do. So in practice: I do always find this option already checked.

Yes Richard thanks, I do this as well. And it is a great idea. But even at that, it still does not work when using a workflow that sends to Photoshop and then returns to LRC at which point it is turned off again.

I also have a preset dedicated to each of the Upright options, and those include ensuring Constrain is ON.

Interesting. So essentially, you're rarely using that panel, you are only using your presets? Good idea.

I'm not heavily into presets and not consistent about their use. Nor does it matter much. Because: photos can easily be edited as a group e.g. with AutoSync, and not only by the use of presets but also manual changes experimentally done. Say the same update is to go onto forty photos as a first approximation: surely it's preferable to perform these changes just once affecting those 40 photos, than to repeat performing them 40 times?

It would be if the Constrain Crop tick box was ticked by default. In years of using Lightroom I have never done a crop that didn't need constraining.

Hey, its kind of an old topic but I was struggling with this too and found an easy workaround in case you're still struggling. select all your pics, then choose one pic with no modification in the transform menu but click on constrain, then sync only the transform with all your other pics (so of course, to do at the beginning before you start transforming and turning them) and voila, it's all auto checked. Sooo useful when I work with my loupedeck !

I would assume that @Claire343137048sos  idea would mark all the images as "has edits" thus rendering that badge, filter and Smart Colleciton option meaningless.

Ah yeah, i guess that's a downside indeed if you need that option,
personally I've never used that because for each serie I first select the
ones i need with stars, then would select them and apply a base develop
preset to the group (including that little transform) and tweak each one
individually so it doesn't really change that fact you know
