Allow me to select multiple photos and apply stars & ratings to the selected photos. Frequently I like to mark all photos as 3-stars, then filter on >= 3 stars. I then start setting photos I don't like to 2 stars to remove them from the visible set. As it is I can't mark all photos as 3 stars in one batch, I instead have to use the desktop to do it.

Agreed, I'd love to see that too.  I often do my first pass as flags, and then give them 1 star and mark up from there.

Yes, would love to be able to flag multiple photos at once for rejection. Makes the first pass so much faster.

It is currently impossible to change flag / star information on multiple photos.

I get the feeling no one is really using LR mobile?  I'm surprised how this isn't voted on more.

Loads of people are using it. We just get used to limitations, and a lot of people only flag/rate one by one.

How is this still not possible after three years?

And you’d think Adobe would prioritize this kind of basic select and change many at once, with their push to LR CC.

I guess they’re too busy spending their record profits on something else than building the products.

I would really like to see this too. It’s really frustrating not being able to do this.

Doesn’t seem to be in today’s update which finally gave iPads copy/paste of editing parameters into multiple images. Why is iOS behind? Who uses an android tablet for serious work? Adobe recognizes this with photoshop for iPad released today, but for Lightroom, the iPad continues to lag behind. Also, the integration between LR and PS for iPad is lacking. No way I can see to "edit in” PS for iPad from LR on iPad.

Different teams take responsibility for different features Thomas, and it just happened that the Android team were leading the copy/paste one. Multi copy/paste just came to iOS, and multi info editing is sure to follow, as it did with Android.

Photoshop for iPad is a 1.0 product, so it is very early days, but I've written about how to pass files back and forth here, until more direct integration is developed.

I am trying to edit some assignments in Lightroom mobile on an iPad. I don’t see a way to apply metadata info like captions to multiple images at once. I can copy and paste one by one , but that’s too time consuming. I see the option on my android phone. The iPad version of Lightroom seems more confusing than the android. I am trying to figure out if I can realistically leave the MacBook behind for editing on location. But the mobile iPad Lightroom seems a bit cumbersome.Stefano

iPad Lightroom, paste captions to multiple images.
Any updates? I don’t see the option to add captions to multiple photos at once. It is a fundamental, basic function . I cam do it on The android version of Lightroom, but not on my iPad. I posted the issue in 2019, still this dealbreaker to use Lightroom for iPad and iOS professionally.

Hi, I already asked months ago about the ability to enter caption text (or keywords) for multiple photos at once. On Android it has been possible for months, on iPad/iOS the feature does not exist.

Most photographers who need to submit photos to editorial clients and publications are required to transmit captioned images. 

The iPad is very portable, but if I need to edit an assignment in the field and send 50 images with some different subjects, it becomes slow and tedious to enter captions one by one. 

Also the caption field box is only one line, which makes it hard to copy/cut/paste a selection of text for another caption (I need to enter subject name. event, location, credit, so some text may be common for all the photos and other specific for some subsets). 

I am not sure why this feature that is available on Android and on Lightroom Classic, is not an option on the iPad. 

It has been almost a year since I submitted a similar post, and Adobe has been silent. 

Is it an iPad OS specific problem or an oversight by part of Adobe? 

Thank you

Stefano
