Is there a fast, systematic way to convert large folders of photos that were processed in earlier versions of Lightroom (2 & 3) to the current version? I can convert individual photos but I would like to convert several hundred at a time if possible.

Select all the photos, go to Develop, enable AutoSync, and then set the Process Version in the Calibration panel. Is that what you want?

Thanks for your help.
This is covered in your Classic FAQ book - but please check the warnings on the affect of this on pages 247/8.
I have used the FAQ book many times but overlooked this helpful section and the caveat.
