How to make Lightroom Mobil On iPad offline usable

Hello everyone,

I have been using my iPad Pro as my main photo editing tool for a long time now. I mainly work as a DP so I havent been taking many photos lately. And for last 2 weeks I`ve been traveling trough Slovenia and taking pictures and editing them on my iPad as I used to. But as I travel my photos sometimes upload to cload and are just gone from the iPad (all that remains are "previews"), and I can not edit them on the road or export and upload or do anything with... I just have to come back to beter conection and even then I wait fot every single photo to be downloaded when I want to edit.

It is the worse User Experience I have ever head and it totally ruins what i liked about Lightroom so much.

Is there any way for me to keep my RAW files locally on the iPad?

In the cloud menu there is "local - Preview - not editable" and "cloud backup - Original" so I know It is set up wrong for me. I just didnt find a way to change it.

Also, I will report this as a bug as well, becouse some times the original doesn`t load .. ever. Even thou I`m connected to a very good internet connection.

Best regard to anyone who would be able to help.
Thank you, Adam

When you have connection, select the three dots alongside the required Albums and select Store Locally.

 

This will take more more space on the device as the Originals with download (or Smart Previes depending on the Cloud Storage and Sync Preference, in Settings)

I have been experiencing the same problem over the past weeks.
Why does LR delete the originals from the photos that I have transferred directly from my camera to my iPad? This is totally unexpected behaviour from my perspective. I wanted to get some work done while on a plane, and I can't access the photo's anymore that I had just transferred to my iPad some days before.

I do regard this to be a bug.

If I transfer photos from my camera to my iPad I expect the originals to remain there. Until I decide otherwise.
