History of LR Mobile edits on LR Classic

I use LR Mobile on my iPhone or iPad to edit images. I'm mostly happy with the edits that I've done.

When I go to LR Classic the images download and sync from the cloud, but the history state only shows the edits as one step coming from mobile.

Often it would be nice to tinker with those edits and scroll back through them on the PC in LR Classic. For example to take off a vignette applied or completely revert to the start and get "part way" through the mobile edit to then continue with settings I use in LR Classic.

Is there some way to show the steps from LR Mobile in LR Classic? Or is it an "all or nothing" situation?

Not possible, Lightroom doesn't save the edit history steps.

 

The nearest it comes to that is the Versions that it creates automatically when editing, but only the final state of the image is preserved as a version when you move on to another image, i.e. if you apply multiple edits to an image, then move to another image, only the final state of the edited image is automatically saved as a new version. And the versions do not sync to LrC, but would be available in the Lightroom Desktop app.

Thanks, @Jim Wilde . That's the conclusion I was edging towards but found it odd that LR Classic gave full history and LR Mobile didn't so suspected I was missing something. In which case... oh well! 😉
