Greetings! Is there a way to apply the same title to multiple photographs? I take bird photos and will end up with many of the same species. So far I haven't found a way to apply the species name to all of the photos of that bird. The spray can doesn't work for titles, for instance. Thanks in advance for any help.

What version of Lightroom are you referring to? The reference to spray can means it  might be Classic. There is n o spray can I think in what Adobe now calls Ligtroom which is the cloud oriented version of Lightroom. Anyway. giving the same title to multiple images works the same in both Lightroom Classic and Lightroom Cloud. You simply select multiple images in the grid view and type the title in the title metadata field. It will assign this same title to all selected images.

It is, indeed Lightroom Classic v10.2 that I'm using. It certainly makes
sense that selecting multiple images and then typing in a title would
result in that title being applied to all of the selected images. But it
doesn't work that way, at least not for me. Only the first of the selected
images receives the title; the title of the other selected images remains
blank.

You have to be in grid view for this to work. If you are in the loupe mode (one image displayed) the changes will only apply to the one you are looking at even if you have multiple selections in the filmstrip at the bottom. Just hit G to make sure you are in grid view.

Understood. I've been trying to do this in Grid view, not Loupe view. No
luck. Is it working for you? Thanks for attempting to help.

I was off-course with my Filename Rename!- apologies. [Puts brain into gear 🙂 ]

Adding the same 'Title' to multiple photos is possible for me-

As stated by @Jao vdL you must be in Grid View with multiple photos selected.

Enter the TITLE in the [Title] field and I see this dialog-

[Apply to Selected] adds the Title to all (my 6 selected files) successfully.

Using Lightroom-CLASSIC , I was curious and tried a multiple rename. My method and result-

Select 3 multiple files in GRID View (Not Loupe View),

[F2] and selected 'Custom Text' = "Delete"

And my result was a type of Sequence-

I do not know what happened to filenames {Delete-1, Delete-2 ) !!

You seem to be referring to a method to rename files. I'm not trying to do
that; merely have a Title added to more than one photo at a time.
