Thank you.

Serena

Also, is there a way in the new LR to batch apply "Auto Settings"? Shift-A works only for 1 photo a time.

To apply Auto to multiple images, first select a single image and Shift+A to apply Auto. Then Shift+Ctrl(Cmd)+C to bring up the "Choose Edit Settings to copy" dialog box. At the top should be the "Auto Settings" option, so enable that plus any other of the settings you also want to copy and paste. When the copy is done, use the same procedure as before, i.e. select the images that you want the Auto settings applied to and do Shift+Ctrl(Cmd)+V.
