  1. Windows 10
LR 11.5 on windows 10, I selected several photos, went to metadata, edit capture time, adjust to specified date and time, only the timestamp of the first selected photo was updated. I can tell because the option 'revert to original timestamp' is only visible for the first photo but not the rest. Is there a way to bulk change timestamp (add X min Y sec to each image) inside lightroom?
Found a way, not sure if its the best way but here it is: in lib mode, select all images to change, go to metadata tab, look for capture time, click on the 3 dot button, time changed there will apply to all selected images
Must be in Grid view for all selected images to be affected. In any other view, only the active image is affected.
And in grid view check the metadata panel. There is a new button to choose between only the active images and all selected images (sorry, I can’t post a screenshot because I type this on my iPad).
