Typically when I've applied corrections to an image I've also cropped and/or leveled (i.e. set the horizon of) the image.  I'd like to be able to copy the other corrections & paste them into other images.  But I can't, because the leveling & cropping is different for each image even when everything else is the same. 

I'd like to see an option to exclude leveling & cropping when copying/pasting correction settings, or some other approach that lets me copy & paste corrections but not change leveling & cropping in the target images.

Agreed - copying over cropping and levelling should be an option.

What about if you make a Preset, disable as many tool as you want? More effort, but you can do it.

What I typically do now is to select the image that has the changed settings, add to the selection all the images I want to apply the changes to, and then modify each changed setting a small amount so that's it's applied to all the selected images.  E.g. if I've changed the color temperature I select the images, use the up arrow once to increase the temperature, and then the down arrow once to decrease it back to where it was.  That's a lot faster than making a preset.  The only problem is that this doesn't always work: sometimes DxO doesn't seem to notice the change, I have to check and retry sometimes to make sure that the change takes.

Should we say you found a solution without software development? Fine.

That may be your view, but it's not mine.  I can circumvent a lot of problems, but the fact that they can be circumvented doesn't mean that the problem is solved.  That's particularly true when the circumvention is unreliable.

As I said originally, my suggestion is adding an option to disable the copying of cropping and leveling information when copying and pasting corrections.

Clumsy workarounds are never a good solution for what is a standard implementation in other, directly competitive, converters - Photo Ninja, Lightroom and Capture One all allow the user to select which settings are copied from image to image:

Correct comparison. Let us see what can you achieve?

Hi,

Thank you for your very interesting suggestion. We are looking into it, but cannot ensure any implementation for  now.

Best regards

I'am also interrested into this improvement.

Usually I use one of tricks already explained:
- creating a preset with only some changes
- selecting all files and applying the modifications on all at the same time.

I feel theses 2 workaround to work but also to be a bit cumbersome. I would prefer that I could copy/past profile and choose what is copied/pasted with sane defaults. (like no crop/perspective, horizon...).

I perfectly understand that there are to be priorities, and this is not a complain... Just that I add my vote to this feature !

Best Regards,

Nicolas.

Exactly...cropping should NOT be one of the settings that is copied from one image to another.

Thanks...

I'd certainly support the option to exclude at least cropping and geometry changes from copy/paste functionality too.

Hi Guys, who support the exclude from copy settings the Crop only.

Are you sure, you will able to remember which parameter won't be copied during Shift+Ctrl+C ?
I would not recommend to hide one or some parameter from this command. Rather let me choose - by switch off the particular tools - which is not desired to copy. If we think about geometry generally, it is include the lens distortion, side rate, etc. The lens distortion correction in a substantial parameter meanwhile the people who want to export or print images in a certain side rate setting would be unhappy to make spacial Preset to achieve the desired result. As for me Copy settings is a shortcut to copy every parameter I should change manually too. It is not filtered, truncated or any other manner limited. If I do want to copy less than all, do it one by one or deactivate the unused tools. This is a widely applied process for copy.
