Hey there!

My current workflow is like this:

  1. Importing RAW images via Camera Connection Kit and Apple Photos App into Lightroom Mobile
  2. Syncing the RAW images via Adobe Cloud from Lightroom Mobile into Lightroom Desktop

This works fine for me, however the RAW files in Lightroom Mobile are taking up more and more space on my iPhone.

Is there a way to delete the RAW files from the Lightroom Mobile app and replacing them with the respective Smart Previews?

Thanks a lot!

Johannes

Hi Johannes,This might work for your future imports, but could be difficult for images on mobile you have right now.You can transfer all your Raw images from your Phone to computer and then import them in Lightroom Desktop.Once imported, Images can be synced and you will have Smart Previews of raw files on Mobile.Regards,Akash

Once you have uploaded all your RAW photos you can trigger "Clear Cache" via Lr Mobile settings-> Local storage and when you then have within Lr Mobils settings->Cloud Storage& Sync  "Only download Smart Previews" enabled the app will work with the Smart previews.

Same when you would like to download a collection for offline editing via collection settings-store locally. With that only Smart Previews will be downloaded

Hope this helps.
