    Batch Edit Photos


      Is it really not possible to batch edit photos? Isn't that one of the biggest features of LR?

          This is not possible in Lightroom CC (currently). If you need this (as most power users do) you should stick with Lightroom Classic, which is the update to Lightroom 2015/CC. Lightroom CC is a completely new app built from the ground up that misses a lot of the features in the old Lightroom but that stores all your originals in the cloud instead of on your local hard disk. Classic stores all your originals locally.

            I appreciate your response and have seen it around. I know the difference between the two and I don't expect the full LR app. This app offers a solution to one problem that I have (easy cloud storage) while neglecting some of the simpler aspects of LR. Batch editing is, I think, one of the cornerstones of LR. I mean, they have a paste edits function. How useful is that one-at-a-time?


            I suppose I'm less looking for answers and more flagging what I think is a fairly glaring flaw in the app. It certainly doesn't live up to, "The complete photo service for editing, organizing, storing, and sharing -- from anywhere."

              I agree. This is a show stopper for me and why I still have my main catalog in Classic and why I only dabble in CC by syncing from Classic to edit a few images on my iPad or travel laptop. A good overview of the missing features is here: https://www.lightroomqueen.com/lightroom-cc-vs-classic-features/
