I don't know if I am missing something, since this is a big deal and I can't find discussions on this topic.

My RAW pics are about 6000x4000 px. When I use the "Edit in Photoshop" command on Lightroom Mobile the image is opened correctly but on image info I can see a size which is roughtly 3000x2000 or less, and not the original one at all. 

Is there a way to keep that at the original size?

Thanks,

Giuseppe

In order to be able to download the full res file from the cloud, to allow you to edit in PS on your iPad, you first have to upload the full res image TO the cloud.

How did those pictures get into Lightroom? Did you perhaps sync them up from Lightroom Classic? If you did, then they are smart previews, not original raw files. Smart previews have a 2560 pixel longest side.

Yes, they are synced from LC.

I understand the issue then. Is there any way to download the full size file before editing the photo?

Thank you all. I understood.

I guess I will have to use Lr and LrC together, since Lr is lacking so many features I normally use.
