What is this magical, time-saving button? 

Glad you asked! This button is the “sync” button! You can find it in the Library and Develop modules. Here is how it saves precious time: When editing, I’ll edit an image from each different lighting scenario or location. Then, I’ll select all of the images from that set, including the one I just edited, and click the sync button in the bottom right corner. Then, viola!

Once you hit synchronize, you’ll see the edits automatically pasted onto each of the photos you selected! This form of batch editing allows you to edit quickly and keep your final images consistent with one another! How amazing is that?!
