Resetting Develope settings to a group of photos all at once...

How do I do it?

I think I figured it out--LR just seems to be painfully slow....
The graduated filter is crippling it--I might as well be mailing it in...

  • Loading metadata resets Develop settings

    Because I'm scanning slides and Lightroom apparently cannot add capture dates and the like, I am using exifer to write metadata to my scans. I first load them into Lightroom and then import XMP metadata. I load them first so I can see them while I decide what dates to apply.
    Today I finally did a test on what Lightroom does with any existing information that is NOT metadata information. I did some adjustments in Develop then imported the metadata from the files. Lightroom did a reset settings on each file as it imported the metadata. I can go back to Develop and "back up" because the history is all there, but this would have to be done file by file, I think. This is very curious to me. Develop settings are not stored in metadata, right? Why then would it decide that an import of metadata would trigger a reset?
    I can work around this but it isn't how I would expect it to work. Is there a way to look at it that does make sense? This means you cannot use an external program to update metadata and then import it without losing your adjustments.

    Try this. If you first write/export the adjustments to XMP in LR, if you are not already doing so, and then do the Exifer thing and then import from XMP, does the same thing happen?
    Do a test image or two as a trial.
    You can use Menu/Metadata/XMP> to do selected images for export, then import.

  • Faces, Location and Edit Photos all at once?

    Is there anyway to label Faces, assign the location to a photo and use the photo editing features all at once?
    When I import new photos, I want to sort through, edit and organize them once. But there doesn't seem to be a way to do this. Any tips for ways to speed this clumsy workflow up?

  • How can i resize lots of photos all at once keeping original file names

  • Does iPhoto allow you to order multiple card projects that you designed with your photos all at once?

    I have create multiple cards with iphoto and I want to order them all at once, but it seems to me that I can only order one card of the same design at once. If I order them all separately, that means I have to pay for shipping for each card I created. I don't want to pay so much for the shipping, I think if I order them all at once, the shipping fee will be cheaper. And I will just recieve one big package instead of several small packages. Has anyone able to order all their iphoto projects in one single order?

    It's not possible.

  • CS3 (XP sp3)  My "develop settings" vanish or are grayed out!?

    I have CS3 installed at my studio and home.
    It's been fine, but after a couple months use, at my studio if I right click on a thumbnail to apply the "previous settings" from another image to a group or other single image, the "Develop options" when I right click on the thumbnail has disappeared? (sometimes it appears on SOME images... usually it's gone). Now this happened at home too. (two different machines.
    CLICKING EDIT at the top menu and selecting DEVELOP SETTINGS, opens another menu that has ALL the options (faded - grayed out).
    My normal work flow is to tweak one image in camera raw, click DONE and then select all like images and APPLY PREVIOUS CONVERSION -
    this has now stopped on both machines - it's literally driving my business to a hault! I'm using Bridge 2.1.1.9 it says
    I've seen others have this same problem, but I didn't see any solution.

    I haven't done your reboot or re-set options yet. (doesn't seem like I need to - as I'm trying other things to try and track down the problem).
    So far here's what I've tried.
    I went to an older directory and bridge worked fine as it should on all these images.
    I went back to the problem dir... (same thing) no develop option on most image. (not all).
    So - I created a new dir... "test" and copied 25% of the images that were having problems into the new dir. Went in there with bridge and (so far it's working fine). STRANGE.
    (when I click on a image, it brings up camera raw... 4.5 and works fine... bridge stays in the background). WHEN I HAVE THE PROBLEM - clicking the image brings up CS3 in the background behind bridge.
    I have no idea why.... still trying to see what causes it.
    I'll continue to copy all the files into the new dir and see if I can make it happen again...
    will advise as I progress.

  • Include Develop settings in metadata inside JPEG, TIFF, and PSD files ignored when unchecked

    In the Catalog Settings under the Metadata tab, I have unchecked the option 'Include Develop settings in metadata inside JPEG, TIFF and PSD files'.
    I then selected a JPEG photograph in the Library module and chose Metadata/Save Metatdata to File.  I wanted to save the metadata that I had added (keywords, IPTC, rating, etc), but not the develop settings.
    I then imported the jpeg back into another catalog.  The metadata I had added was there as expected, but so are the develop settings.  This I did not expect or want.
    Have I got something wrong here?  My understanding is that turning off the 'Include Develop settings in metadata inside JPEG, TIFF and PSD files' option means that develop settings are not written to the xmp area in non raw files such as jpegs.
    Looks like a bug to me.
    Tony

    Hello all,
    I have investigated this problem further and now have the answer.  It is not that the option "Include Develop settings in metadata inside JPEG, TIFF, and PSD files" is ignored, but it appears that the LR catalog is not properly updated when this option is turned off.
    Here are steps to test and illustrate the problem:
    1. Create a new folder and place a copy of an original jpeg image (original from camera) in the new folder.  Make sure you keep the original safe and only work on copies.
    2. Create a new catalog in Lightroom 2.3.
    3. Import the jpeg image from the new folder.
    4. Add some metadata (keywords, ratings, title, caption, IPTC data, etc).
    5. Make some Develop adjustments to the image.
    6. Open "Catalogue Settings" from the Edit menu and check (enable) the option "Include Develop settings in metadata inside JPEG, TIFF, and PSD files".  Uncheck (disable)  the "Automatically write changes into XMP" option.
    7. Select "Save Metadata to File".
    8. Delete the jpeg image from the Library module, then re-import it.
    9. Copy the original image back to the new folder, replacing the updated jpeg (once again, the jpeg image now contains no metadata from Lightroom).  At this stage, Lightroom fails to recognize that the metadata in the LR catalog doesn’t match the metadata content in the jpeg file.  I would have though that it should.
    10. Open "Catalogue Settings" from the Edit menu and uncheck (turn off) the option "Include Develop settings in metadata inside JPEG, TIFF, and PSD files".
    11. Reset the Develop settings.
    12. You now need to make a change to the metadata like increase or decrease the rating (otherwise LR won’t save any metadata to the jpeg file - LR is being too smart and thinks it’s already up to date, so does nothing when you do the next step).
    12. Select "Save Metadata to File".
    13. Delete the jpeg image from the Library module again, then re-import it again.
    14. Look at the develop settings (that you specifically did not want saved within the jpeg file in step 10).
    Although the Develop settings were Reset in step 11, you have ended up with the original Develop settings from step 5.  It is true that LR has not saved the reset develop settings, but it also hasn’t removed the old develop settings that are still stored in the catalog.  This must be considered a bug (oversight).  Note that it has also saved an Import snapshot as well.
    For the more technically minded (and the LR developers if you are listening), the field "xmp" in the table "Adobe_AdditionalMetadata" is not updated (old camera raw settings and snapshot settings are left behind) when the "Include Develop settings in metadata inside JPEG, TIFF, and PSD files" option is unchecked (disabled) and it seems that this is the data that is written to the jpeg file when you select "Save Metadata to File".  Note that the state of "Automatically write changes into XMP" has not effect on this process - I tried it on and off.
    Hope that this might be of some help to others one day.

  • Develop Settings: jpg/xmp

    Hello,
    first off some background, that I would appreciate corrections on, if I understood something wrong.
    a) Lightroom saves the settings it will apply to files in the database, but if the catagog option "Automatically write changes into XMP" is checked, LR will create a XMP file all files in which it stores the develop settings.
    b) This setting applys to all files (raw, DNG, JPG, TIFF, PSD) unless the setting "Include Develop settings in metadata inside JPEG, TIFF and PSD files", in which case XMP files are not created for the named file-types, where the develop settings are saved into the metadata of the file itsself.
    And now my problem:
    I always have the "Automatically write changes into XMP" settings turned on, so that on a database corruption the develop settings are directly associated with the files and can be re-imported to another database. I have imported some 15000 files (60% raw, 40% jpeg) and have started to develop them. All raw files have a XMP file associated with them and modifications to Keywords and develop Settings lead to the XMP files being changed and the raw files remain unchanged. But... for JPEGs LR saves all changes into JPEGs according to the "Include Develop settings in metadata inside JPEG, TIFF and PSD files" setting, which was on for some reason or other. Since it would be so much easier for incremental backups if the JPGs were not modified and only XMPs were changed, I turned the "Include Develop settings in metadata inside JPEG, TIFF and PSD files" setting off. But nothing changed. Still no XMP files are appearing despite changes to the files.
    Is there any way to force LR to move the develop settings from within the JPGs to external XMP files?
    Thanks all!

    inforumman,
    Your questions:
    a) Correct, but saving to XMP does NOT replace saving in the Lr catalog. Save to XMP is in addition to saving in the catalog.
    b) The wording "saving the XMP" is a bit misleading, insofar as an XMP-file will be created only in case of Raw files, whereas with TIFFs, JPGs, PSDs the metadata (edits or other metadata) is written into (the header of) the image file - but NOT into the image pixels.
    c) As LRuser24 already said, it is not possible to have Lr write an XMP-file for JPGs, or for TIFFs, or for PSDs.

  • LR3 reset ALL develop settings for photos transferred to external HD

    I recently moved all of my photos from 2009 to an external HD to save some space on my laptop. I pointed the catalog to the new location and they show up, but the develop settings for ALL of the photos have been reset. I can get back to what I had done by clicking each photo's history just prior to the reset, but why did it reset and is there a way I can get it to un-reset??

    I suppose you moved the files from outside of LR. What steps did you take to "point the catalog to the new location"?
    ... they show up, but the develop settings for ALL of the photos have been reset. I can get back to what I had done by clicking each photo's history just prior to the reset, but why did it reset and is there a way I can get it to un-reset??
    Are you saying that you actually see a "Reset" entry in the history of each photo?

  • Can't Paste Develop Settings to Multiple Photos

    I'm running Lightroom V3.2, and I have about 100 pictures I took at a concert.  I tweaked the exposure, brightness, etc, and the noise reduction, and copied the develop settings.  If I paste the settings onto any one photo, the paste works great.  However, I want to paste these settings to all 100 photos at once.  In the filmstrip, I select multiple photos, and no matter how I paste it (typically with the big paste button on the lower left of the develop screen) the settings are applied to only the right-most selected photo in the filmstrip.  I've tried everything I can think of but I can't get the settings to apply to multiple photos at once.  Any suggestions?
    Thanks!

    That did it, thanks for the speedy reply!!!
    Wow, is that functionality confusing though...

  • Some imported tifs given some RAW develop settings

    For a long time I have processed files in other apps and imported the tif files into Lightroom for printing, slide shows and web galleries. Today I processed a group of files in Capture One 5, adjusted them in Photoshop CS4 and saved them as tifs.  When imported to lightroom 2.5 many of them are displayed with very, very high contrast and brighter than they appeared in Photoshop.  Some look fine. Most have adjustment layers, but that doesn't seem to make a difference, some with layers are displayed properly while others have look awful.  What is happening is that is that Lightroom is applying the same brightness and contrast settings (50 and 20 respectively) to some of the Tifs as it would to RAW files, but only those two develop settings and only to about half the files.  Clicking the reset button clears up the issue. Does anyone know why this is happening? The same this occurs to the same files in LR 3, but Photoshop, Aperture and Photo Mechanic display them properly.
    Thanks in advance,
    Peter

  • How do you auto tone a group of photos. I selected them all and tried to auto tone but it keeps doing only one

    How do you auto tone a group of photos. I tried command a to select all and then auto tone but it only did one Photo. I troes several times and yes all photos were selected

    In Develop you can highlight a group of thumbnails in the filmstrip, then right-click and choose Develop Settings -> Auto Tone
    In Library you can highlight a group of thumbnails in the Grid and click the Auto Tone button in the Quick Develop area.
    What you can’t do is click the Auto button in Develop and have it do more than one photo—this is by design, except, maybe if you have Auto Sync enabled.

  • Batch Enhancing for a group of photos

    Hi,
    I just took over 100 photos that all need to be enhanced similarly. I was going to use the auto-enhance feature on each one. Is there a way to use this feature on a group of photos other than going through each one individually?
    Thanks

    Valid concerns.

    but wont lift and stamp lift the changes done to that photo only and so it will make the same adjustments for every photo to be the "auto enhanced" settings of photo 1, which may not be the best for photo 2?
    No. Lift & Stamp of "Exposure→Default Adjustment" from a Version which has been auto-adjusted using the Exposure brick will cause the stamped Version to be auto-adjusted. This is easily tested (auto-adjust, lift, select another Version, stamp, compare the values in the Exposure brick to make sure the stamp is relative not absolute, auto-adjust the stamped Version and see if the Exposure values are changed).
    I do not want to auto-enhance on import becasue I want the master RAW files to remain intact so that I can use them for detailed editing in photoshop, but when I am doing samples I want to just use a quick edited version like the auto enhance.
    Raw is raw. It is not an image format, it is a data format. What you see in Aperture is an image format file which Aperture creates from your raw files. You should test this as well: import two images (helpful if they are poorly exposed) and auto-enhance them as part of the import. Select them after import and "reset all adjustments". Tell us what you find out.
    I am 98% certain that the processing you tell Aperture to do on import is done as a Version of the raw file.
