Applying “auto” edit to all photos

Hey all, I was wondering if there is a way to just get the initial auto edit applied to a bulk number of raw files. I'm no pro editor so I like to import my RAW files, auto edit them and then take it from there. It's kind of annoying to have to do it to each one individually. I'm currently on an iPad.

 

Thanks

The only way to achieve that would be to create a preset which only applies "Auto", then set that preset as the import default develop settings. The problem is that I can't see a way to create an "Auto Only" preset on the iPad, although it's possible using the Lightroom Desktop app (which is where I created mine), and that would then sync to the iPad where you could set it as the import default.

While not exactly "Auto," another option is to specify a certain Preset to be applied Raw Default Settings during import on Mobile.

 

See these pages for more info:

and while this is for Android, it is similar to the iOS experience: https://helpx.adobe.com/lightroom-cc/using/raw-defaults-android.html

 

In short, I wonder if LR Settings > Import > Raw Default > Preset > Color: Natural might get you close to what you'd like as a starting point for many of your photos?

THANK YOU! Why was this impossible to find! I would think this would be a basic need for many users. So much appreciated.

I was searching for this functionality, too, and found the following solution:

Select the "Photo Grid" view option in the lower left of the screen

Right click and select "Apply Auto Settings" (or Shift-A on keyboard shortcut)
