    I always use the Develop module to process my photos so what is the purpose of the Quick Develop in the Library module? Is it to do a larger number of photos at the same time? Is it to start with? Is it for quick developing? Just curious.

    QD has two primary purposes, one of which, you've already divined.

    1. QD allows you (in Grid mode) to select multiple images and apply edits to them all at once.
    2. QD allows you to apply changes relative to existing values rather than replacing them. In Develop a Preset application or a Sync replaces the value with a new value. In QD it adds or subtracts to an existing value of the adjustment.
