Thanks.

This is currently not possible on the iPad, neither in Photoshop for Mobile nor in Lightroom Mobile.

 

You can request this as a feature here:

 

Lightroom Mobile:

Hi @es220 , do you use Lightroom Classic, or the new Lightroom CC app?

@es220 , I just moved your post to the forum for LR Classic, where I hope others who can speak better to your question.

Lightroom-CLASSIC always works in RGB, but you can Develop as "Black&White".

2021-06-09 07_38_18-Roberts Catalog-v10 - Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Classic - Develop.jpg

Photoshop has the MENU: Image > Mode > Greyscale.

2021-06-09 07_39_09-© 5479-Edt2.tif @ 50% (RGB_16).jpg

But I ask- Why do you want "Greyscale"?  Editing a photo as a Monochrome has far greater possibilities to adjust tonal values if the three 'color' channels (RGB) remain in the file.(Greyscale has only one channel)

eg. Using a B&W Adjustment Layer in Photoshop.

 

 

 

Regards. My System: Lr-Classic 11.0.1, Photoshop 23.0.2, Lightroom 5.0, Bridge 12.0, Windows-10.
