Using LR on iPad and Synching to LR on an iMac at Home

I posted this earlier and don't think I explained fully, so....

 

I want to use LR on my iPad as I travel and have it sync to my LR on my iMac at home. I'd use Classic at home and moble on my iPad.

My thinking is:

         that I would set up a folder on my machine at home and sync it to my iPad. 

         Images that I take on the trip would be put into the sync'd folder on my iPad, edit and label them and, hopefully, magically, they would show up in my folder at home.

 

I store my images on an external HD at home. How would I get those files onto my external, while maintaining any edits, keywords etc??

Thank You, 

Warren

It is as simple as this-

1) In Lightroom-Classic (at home) open the Preferences > Lightroom Sync Tab

2) Specify  [Choose] a Location, and option for sub-folders, for the downloading af ALL Cloud files.

3)  [Start Syncing] in the Cloud icon of LrC

Ta Da!- Images magically appear in the chosen folder in LrC.

Note: Keywords could be a problem!- Not all metadata syncs Cloud > Local. Leave the Keywording until at home.

NO KEYWORD SYNC

SYNC SETUP IN CLASSIC

I would think that your "raid' would show as a connected hard-drive, AND you set a Folder on the Raid as the Destination for the download location in the LrC Preferences >Lightroom Sync tab.

 

If they downloaded to an internal drive, then you would use LrC folder panel to move them to the Raid.
