P: Apply “auto” edit to all photos in Lightroom for iPad

This is a feature request for Lightroom for iPad. It would be great if I could apply the "auto" edit function to all selected photos (or all photos in a particular album, or all photos in a particular import), rather than having to manually apply the "auto" editing tool for each one, on Lightroom for iPad.  I understand this can be done on the desktop version of Lightroom, but it cannot be done on the iPad version.  

 

I travel with an iPad, not a laptop, and I prefer to apply "auto" edit to my shots and then work from there with my own tweaks, rather than starting from a raw file or jpeg and manually editing from scratch. For example, I shot 6000 images during a glorious week of travel in Kenya this past week, and I am at the airport right now with my iPad keen to cull them down and edit the best ones during the long flight home. It takes forever to go image by image.  I could probably get the whole job done in one plane flight if Lightroom had this feature.  

 

I realize that you can apply presets to multiple photos on iPad Lightroom, but there is no way to make a preset that applies "auto" to each image individually for that image.  You could apply a set of edits for one image to many other images, but that doesn't really do the trick.

 

Thank you Adobe for considering adding this functionality.

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: 

 

https://jkost.com/blog/2020/06/lightroom-mobile-raw-defaults-versions-local-hue-editing-synced-water... 

 

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)

In Grid View, select all the images you want to apply "Auto" to then hit "Command U" - it works for me.

You cannot do this with a preset on IPad.  Read above.  You can only apply, say, natural color or whatever.  That is not "auto."  

 

I too would very much like to be able to "auto" edit all my photos on iPad without going one by one.  Seems like sort of basic functionality that should be added.

This does not work on the iPad version, which is what this thread is about.
