Lightroom Mobile Raw edit. Disable wifi sync for those photos.

Lightroom mobile:
Would like the ability to import and edit RAW files on iPad. To me that is what mobile means. I don't need or want to have photos sync with desk top while on the road.That can be done via usb once home. I have a portable wifi hard drive for back up and storage while on road. Keep things the way they are but if you want to edit actual files on the road then sync feature is disabled for those files.

Apps like photosmith are already able to do this, I think if we could download the RAW into camera roll, then simply have a preview version in LRM and do sorting and edits on that. The original stays in the camera roll. Once we get back home, import the raw via CF (the normal way) and LR desktop should be able to sync back the edits done. This would be a good compromise between a full RAW workflow which has limitations due to Apple restrictions and bandwidth to upload the full RAW files to the cloud.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Lightroom mobile RAW import and workflow improvement!.

I would like to be able to import RAW files in Lightroom Mobile (ipad or ipad pro) (from camera Connection kit or camera) and flag/mark the one I want delete the rest and sync the one I save to my home computer, export jpegs to flickr, export raws to a second location (backup maybe? cifs/nas) in short, I would like to be able to move my workflow from my computer to my ipad (or ipad pro) and do some of the casual tasks there. It would be awesome!

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Lightroom Mobile can't work with raw, while mobile?! Why not?.

Why can't Lightroom Mobile read raw files? What's the point of being mobile if you can't work on your photos while you're mobile, say on a trip or something...? Disappointing. I upgraded to Creative Cloud to be able to take Lightroom Mobile on my trip with me but if it can't work with my raw files, then the benefit of mobile is lost.
