Here’s a way to apply Adobe Camera Raw settings to lots of images at once.

To apply the same settings to a group of images, open them in Bridge. Select a range of thumbnail images shot in a similar lighting conditions. Right-click any one of the thumbnails and choose “Open in Camera Raw.”

Choose “Select All.” Make your changes to the main image and all the selected images will update.

If you have a preset, choose your saved preset from the Apply Settings pop-up menu and click UPDATE. You should see the update on the screen immediately.

Then press Shift-Return on a Mac or Shift+Enter on a PC to open the photos and apply your saved settings.
