Good morning I have a question I normally shoot in NEF with a Nikon D810 and then download the images to Lightroom Mobile for IOS in the cloud via an Ipad Air 2022. All excellent and very satisfying. But now I get the message about the space (1TB) almost exhausted. Consequently I have a doubt; how can i delete images from the cloud while retaining the ability to see the changes made in the future? Is it possible or should I delete the images from the cloud losing all the processing work done? When I was using LR Classic there were no problems because it was enough to save the catalog to a file and the problem was solved. Thanks to those who can help me Francesco - Siena - Italy
Thanks Sameer for the answer but my need is to clean up my cloud of older images without losing the changes made and the processing. So I would need a system to export the NEF (or other) files with the changes made attached, so that in the future I will be able to reload them again on the cloud. Regarding LR Classic I wanted to tell you that I no longer have it as I have the LR Mobile license with 1TB of space.
You can export your NEF files as DNG. That will save the edits in the metadata of the DNG files, meaning that the edits will automatically be read and applied if and when you import them in Lightroom again. After you have exported the images, you can delete them from Lightroom to clear up cloud space.
