Auto Button in Develop Preset

Is there a way I can create a Develop Preset that will use the Auto Button for a series of photos that I am importing?  Currently I have to import the photos and then use the Auto Button one file at a time.  I'd like to be able to do this to get some baseline develop adjustments made before I individually adjust each photo.

In the Import module under Apply During Import> Develop Settings> Classic General you can select 'Auto Settings.' This will apply Auto Tone uniquely to each import file. However, when doing so on import, or after import using Auto Sync LrC uses the lower resolution image data in the camera raw cache to calculate the settings.This is revealed when you look at each of the imported files with Auto Settings or applied using Auto Sync by the Auto button being highlighted. When you click on the Auto button it will go black indicating the full-resolution image data has been used to calculate the settings. The results are often very close to applying 'Auto' individually to each AFTER they have been imported, but sometimes there are undesirable differences.

 

Best suggestion is to use either method keeping in mind that clicking on the Auto button may provide better results. I find it useful and most image files require only a slight adjustment to Exposure to achieve very acceptable results.

 

See this report that I filed for more information.

The auto button is not the tool for this. You have no control over how it will handle each photo.

 

You can create presets for your photos, and then apply the presets in bulk (if you want) or to individual photos (if you want) and so in this fashion, "some baseline develop adjustments" are made to the desired photos.

Thanks dj_paige for the response. I'm already doing some baseline
adjustments upon importing photos. I really like what auto does as a
starting point and was hoping I could incorporate that into my workflow. Oh
well.

Thank you Todd.  You’ve nailed the problem I am trying to solve and done a great analysis.  I think I’ll stick to using the Auto Button on one file at a time until Adobe comes up with an option to  do full-quality batch Auto.  That is, if they ever do.
