iPhone Photos and Videos to LR Mobile: Destructive in Any Way?

I have a hard drive full of photos and videos that I've taken on my iPhone. I'd like to use Lightroom as a long-term backup, but I wonder if Lightroom strips any of the data such as portrait mode. I'd like HEIF files, for example, to be preserved in their original form (no conversion to JPEG). Just wondering how my files are altered, if at all.

Hi there,

 

Thanks for reaching out. That's a great question. Let me try to clarify.

 

Adobe Lightroom acts as a backup and keeps your original images on the cloud under your account and can be downloaded as an original with or without any edits.

Check this article to learn more about: HEIC/HEIF and HEVC media files support in Lightroom 

& Apple documentations suggest situations where the media might get converted to JPEG & H265, and please be sure to check this: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT207022

 

Please check this article to learn more: Frequently Asked Questions About Lightroom For Mobile.

 

We hope this helps,

Thanks!
