Issues with Edits

Your edits are complete, but something was off, and you went through our article on finding the issues with your edits.

Now that you know what's wrong, here are two different ways to correct these issues.

First, we will use the sync method. To begin, we need to correct the issue for one image. In this example, we will use the Profile issue. In our example, the Lightroom profile was set to Adobe Landscape, but for our purposes, we only edit with Adobe Standard now.

First, make the change from Adobe Landscape to Adobe Standard for one image in the Develop module.

Next, we will head to Library mode while still having the corrected image selected.

Select all the images (Command A (Mac) or Ctrl-A (Windows)). Once all of the images are selected, click the SYNC SETTINGS button in the lower right-hand corner.

Lightroom will prompt us to choose what settings we want to sync. Deselect everything except the Treatment & Profile check box.

If you were following these instructions to fix calibration, color grading, or any of the other adjustments that did not work as intended, you would check those box(es) instead.

Then simply click Synchronize and Lightroom will apply the correction to all of the selected images.

The second option available to batch correct is through creating a "correction preset".

To do this, the steps are somewhat similar. First, we must make an adjustment to an image.

In this case, we made adjustments to the Calibration that we want on all the images (something similar to the preset we normally use).

Next, we’ll create our own preset. To do this, on the left-hand side of the screen, click the + sign next to Presets. A menu will pop up - "Create Preset".

Next, you will be prompted for what settings the preset will adjust.

Make sure to uncheck all the boxes except for the specific adjustments you want to make.

For example, if you are making one for the Adobe profile, you would click the Treatment & Profile checkbox.

For HSL sliders, it would just be the HSL sliders checkbox. In our case, it is our calibration preset, so we named it just that and checked the calibration box.

To apply this preset to all of the images, simply go to the Library module.

On the right-hand side of the screen, navigate to Saved Preset, find our Calibration Preset and apply it to all of the images.

Our corrections will be applied to all of the images, but none of the other adjustments will be affected.
