Lightroom mobile -> Lightroom Classic workflow – can I do it better?

I have used Lightroom Classic (LrC) for some time now and keep all photos (DNG format) and edited versions on a local disk in a date based file structure with an appropriate backup regime.

When travelling I wish to use my tablet (Samsung) to preview raw images, make minor changes/enhancements in Lightroom mobile and then move the images and edits to my local storage when I return home.

So when travelling I :-

  1. Copy files from my camera SD card to my tablet
  2. Import those images into lightroom on the tablet in the camera raw format
  3. Modify some images on the tablet

On return home I :-

  1. Sync Lightroom Classic with the tablet/Creative Cloud (having enabled this process in Lightroom Classic -> Preferences -> location)
  2. Select and then “Drag and drop” various date based groups of images from the sync’ed location to the appropriate location on the local disk within Lightroom Classic
  3. Use LrC to convert raws to DNG folder by folder
  4. Delete images from Creative Cloud - otherwise I would fill up my cloud storage allowance
  5. Remove files from tablet - otherwise I would fill up tablet storage

While this process appears to work in that the images are now available in LrC with any edits transferred and reversible, it is quite long winded and I suspect prone to human error.

Any comments are welcome!

That's the preferred workflow, although I would not convert the images to DNG on return.
