Hello everyone,

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.

I have the same question and tried your solution. However, the auto or presets are only applied to the first image in my selection. I select an image, click auto, then STRG+SHIFT+C, select auto only. deselect the image and select several unedited images. Only the fist image gets the auto setting when I paste it. Am I missing something?

Nevermind. I was missing something, indeed. I did not press CTRL when pasting. CTRL+SHIFT+V did the trick.
