Lightroom: Auto Sync: Relative value adjustments

Hi Folks

I would like to make 'relative' value adjustments to multiple selected images in the develop module. Currently adjustments in auto sync are absolute only in that all selected images are forced to the same value

For example I might have 100 image selected that all have different temperature values. I often want to increase their warmth by the same relative amount. Currently adjusting the slider of typing in a value forces all 100 images to the same value.

Cheers

There is no need to "bump" posts on the feedback site. Let people read them and vote on them.

I agree, I would find that helpful too. I was just about to publish my own new thread with the title

 "Tweak-Sync" -Sync relative tweak amount,  instead of copy final values"

and I think I will go ahead with it even if this is redundant.

I think such a new function is useful, specifically justifiable if we want to create a duplicate of a series (of differently treated images), a version for say the web, a projector, another monitor - something that indeed is more something of a tweak-intervention rather than serious editing.

I understand that this is so far omitted function because it is admittedly
"not a very "serious" approach, and not even possible in all circumstances
(shall an image that for instance is already at a maximum setting - be highlighted or ignored ?)
Another problem might be, that steps might not be truly linear in truth.
Still, for "conscious" users, it could still be very useful sometimes (time-saver).
(btw; auto-sync can also be kind of "dangerous)
