Lightroom ipad workflow sorted with ipad pro and I'm very pleased.
30 Sep 2016
Well as I thought my old slow Ipad could not work with Lightroom mobile, so this week I just had to treat myself to the new ipad pro, and all works beautifully.
Using the connector, I imported 110 raw files to the ipad, each approximately 40MB in size.
I will keep all these as a back up, eventually exporting them to a portable hard drive from "photos" in my Mac.
I selected 20 photos and added them as favourites, then opened Lightroom mobile and made a collection from these favourites.
I worked on these images using Lightroom mobile and was surprised that I could use just about any feature, globally or selective, that is in lightroom desktop.
Later I went to my desktop and noted my images were all in a Lightroom collection there and what I really liked was that the original raw files had been synced from the ipad with the XMP adjustments to the folder structure that I normally import my files to i.e. capture date year/month/day.
It looks like I will not have to take my Macbook when I go away on holiday/shoots now as I should be able to organise and enhance my files from the ipad, with perhaps just a little finalising of the selected images.
The apple pencil pressure capabilities do not work with Lightroom yet, but this will be more useful with photoshop applications anyway and I look forward to trying this pencil out in the next few days.
The Lightroom for Landscape workshop on 25th March is now fully booked. should you wish to go on the waiting list please e-mail me.
