I am going on holiday in a couple of weeks & wondered if anyone has done the following and if it’s possible?
I have a subscription to adobe Creative cloud cc & mainly use Lr classic on my iMac without using any of the cloud sync/storage side of things. But I also understand I can get the Lr app on my iPad Pro. Now what I’m thinking is why I’m away if I have taken any shots (in raw), that I want to have a look at, once I upload them onto my iPad can I process them via the Lr app, A) offline as wont have internet connection & B) independently from my iMac so that things only get saved on my iPads storage, but then when I get back home I can then transfer them onto my iMac and interstate them within my catalog on there?
I fully understand & appreciate your advice and agree that this is definitely the best way to use the app, using the sync & cloud features, if I wanted to actually process my images fully on my iPad.
However I'm not actually looking to do that, I purely want to use the Lr iPad app, as a viewer for say a couple of images whilst I'm holiday that I may wish to look at to see how say a few particular ones turned out. And then once home, I would be importing them along with all the others from my trip, into Lr, my iMac & home storage system as I normally would & process them all properly via Lr classic on the iMac 🙂
Now actually since writing this post, I have now worked out how I can make this work for me, & it really easy.. All I need to do is turn off syncing/cloud on the app. Then if I do wish to view a couple of images I can just insert my SD card into my iPad Pro via adapter, save the few images I want to look at, view them... Or I can even just insert the SD card & just use the Lr app as a raw image viewer, without even needed to save anything to the actual iPad. I understand they may be dull looking as I'll be viewing unprocessed images, but it will do just to see for sharpness & basic composition 🙂
