I just installed Lightroom to my new windows laptop. I have lightroom on my desktop and another laptop. I was able to select multiple photos and "develop" aka edit the photos and if "autosync" was clicked then it would change them all at once, just a few days ago on my other compters. I cannot find that option now on this computer. I also tried selecting multiple photos and making changes but it only made changes to the first photo.
If there is a way to do this, please tell me how - like i'm a 5 year old. One missed word or click and I will be lost. It took me years to get this far :'(
If it is not possible anymore than I just wasted hundreds of dollars on a new computer so I could install the "latest version" of Lightroom...
If you also have alternative software recommendations where I can batch develop/edit, I'm all ears.
Lightroom (the cloud version) is not necessarily the "latest" version of Lightroom. Rather, it is a different version of Lightroom. It is a version of Lightroom that stores images in the cloud rather than on your hard drive, and the interface is quite different. Lightroom Classic is the version that is similar to what users were accustomed to with Lightroom 6 and previous versions. With Lightroom "cloudy" there is no option to edit multiple images at the same time. It IS possible to copy the edits that have been completed on one image and then paste those changes using the conventional copy/paste options of your operating system.
