So GoPro claims itself as "the social media camera", still I can‘t import raw files from my GoPro into Lightroom CC Mobile on my iPad.
Is there a way to get my raw files into Lightroom CC Mobile without using a computer first? For example like I import my RAW files from my DSLR with a SD-Card adapter?
Because of Apple’s iOS system restrictions, you have to import the raw files to the iOS camera roll first. Then you can import to LR CC Mobile from there.
This is the way I tried, but it always just imports the jpg and not the gpr file to the ipad.
Please try this out with the latest version, i.e. 4.2
I tried the latest version but it didn’t work. Now I think it is a problem with Apple itself. When I import files from my DSLR to the iPad Pro via my SD-card reader and then import the image from the iPads camera roll to LR CC Mobile, it automatically is the imported RAW (CR2). When I do the same with the GoPro it always just imports the JPG instead of the GPR. So the problem starts when, instead of importing the GPR, the iPad is just importing the JPG. I couldn‘t find a way to import the files from the SD-card without importing it first to the iPads camera roll either.
ok, it would be good to know exactly how you import.
Do you do it with the file picker? Is it autoimport?
How does it work if you e.g. share/open copy?
Or just use the new share extension?
I usually put in my SD-Card reader into the iPad and the iPads camera roll automatically pops up. There I select my files and import them to the camera roll. Then I switch to LR CC Mobile for iPad and press the blue button in the right bottom corner to import files from the camera roll. That works for my CR2 raw files not for the GPRs. I read about a faster way to import directly to LR, but didn‘t find a „how to“ about it. I‘m happy to try another way if someone helps me out with a link or something.
This is exactly the same problem I have. I believe it’s due to the GPR file extension. I think iOS is only set up to look for certain photo extensions, and it knows about RAW but not GPR.
I’ve had some success using my wife’s laptop to upload my files to Dropbox and then renaming the file extension from GPR to RAW and then importing to Lightroom.
But, the whole idea for me is to not have to use a laptop to get to the RAW file.
I think the best thing GoPro could do is to allow us to set the GPR files to save as a RAW file extension in the camera settings.
Can you let us know exactly which goPRO you have?
iOS version would also help.
Btw - does it work with the Shortcuts app if you select file type GPR?
I have a GoPro Hero 5. iOS version is 12.1.4.
The Shortcuts app doesn’t seem to do anything for me, but this is my first time using it.
If you save the GPR images to the Files App you will be able to import many at a time as of Lightroom 4.2 (latest release).
You then select that images that you want, tap Share and select Lightroom.
How can I save the GPR files from the Apple SD card reader to the Files app?
That doesn't seem to be possible as a mobile workflow.
It is possible over e.g. iTunes.
The Camera Connection Kit only seems to import JPG's to the Camera roll.
The ideal thing to do would be that the GoPro app allows syncing of non JPGs to the GoPro app.
And that they are then saved into Files for others to use through sharing.
Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be much that Lightroom can do here.
I can import the GPR files into LR CC as a GPR. I cannot convert it to a DNG. I can open it in Camera Raw in PS and SAVE AS a a PSD.
Any clues on importing into LR as a DNG?
I am using a MicroSoft Surface 3, WIN 10, and a HERO 7 Black
I have been struggling with exactly the same issue and I've spent hours looking for a resolution without success. Did any of you finally get a working solution? Many thanks.
I've tried importing GoPro raw files (extension .GPR) from the SD card using the Files App on my iPad 2 and then "sharing" the files from the Files App to LR as per the advice found on this discussion. It worked! I'm very grateful for the advice provided by the contributors.
The files appear in the LR app as DNG files. The DNG files are not much bigger than the JPG files so I'm trying to work out why.
I also managed to transfer CR2 raw files created on my Canon using an SD to Lightning adaptor and importing the files directly to the LR app. The CR2 files in this case are several times bigger than the JPG files.
Thanks to one and all for your help.
I had the same problem and I solved it going to lightroom.adobe.com website and uploading the RAW files there through the website. You can create a new folder on the site and see it on your app.
