How to auto apply Lens corrections during upload in Lightroom?

Question

I shoot raw with my 6D and edit everything in LR4. And Ive noticed that LR4 never ever applies lenscorrections. Only if I hit that specific checkbox. How can I make LR4 do that automaticly during upload? Is that even possible?

The simple answer is - you can't. At least not automatically. Here's what you can try:

1) Import all images

2) Click on the first one and go to the Develop module

3) Scroll all the way down to lens correction and tick the boxes you want

4) Go over to the left in the Presets tab and create a new preset

5) Name it something like (Lens Correction) and keep the brackets - that way it will conveniently stay on top of any other presets you might have

6) Mark all of your newly imported photos (Ctrl+A)

7) Apply the newly created preset to them

8) [OPTIONAL] Run around the house in your underwear, jumping in joy, because I just saved you from having to manually apply lens correction to 437 photos

ACTUALLY, scratch steps 6 and 7. Just right click on the preset and chose "Apply on Import". Just found this out on my own - looks like you can have it automated after all...
