Here is a idea. Making a version of Lightroom classic CC for the iPad. Is that a possibility

I would really like Lightroom classic on my iPad . I’m just not a fan of mobile.

Not going to happen. Lightroom CC/Mobile has been built from the ground up to be a mobile multi device orientated app. Adobe isn't going to suddenly bring Lightroom Classic to mobile devices. Personally I'm a huge fan of the new Lightroom CC. It's still missing a few features I like compared to classic, but that gab is eroding as the updates roll out. Probably best to get a windows tablet

The reason why Adobe built a new Lightroom from the ground up was that the old Lightroom Classic code was not suitable for things like syncing and cloud storage, and rewriting all that code would be more work than creating a whole new Lightroom ecosystem. So no, that is not going to happen.

It's probably more profitable (if a Sisyphean endeavour) to ask for Lightroom Mobile to be improved in very specific, grown-up areas that appeal to Classic users. For instance, for me the ability to add keywords in Mobile is a waste of development dollars if it doesn't sync throughout the Lightroom world and is just limited to the "ecosystem". Some of the sharing and proofing features are would be popular with Classic users and yet are implemented at a childish level, and there are other obvious areas where Cloudy seems to have been a distraction. Mobile is pretty good when you stretch it, and could be more for Classic-level users.

And, George, how would you connect the iPad to your 36TB RAID array, with all your photos, anyway?

If it’s a NAS, it might be closer to a mobile workflow than desktop, don’t you think? ;-)

Maybe, but I'm old school, I don't NAS, I DAS (Direct Attached Storage)! I have a need, for speed! ;-)

Me too, you know ;-) well, das because it’s cheaper than nas. Just USB3 drives does the job :-)

For a while now, iPad has been more than capable to run Lightroom Classic! With the release of the new m1 iPad Pro I think this would be the perfect time to launch lightroom classic for the device. Us wedding photographers and other creatives that us classic would love to take our work with us on an iPad. We've also felt left in the dark with classic as it doesn't feel like it receives many major improvements. Some of us believe that Adobe is phasing out classic (I hope not). By no means do I mean for this to come off as a rant. Just would love to see this implementation.

Also, an updated interface for classic would nice as well. I hope you consider! Thanks.

Not sure what you're smoking but you should share with the rest of us so we can float on your cloud of delusions as well.

Yes, one of the newest iPad Pros with the M1 processor, 16GB of RAM and 2TB storage could probably run LR Classic but that doesn't mean it would be a good platform. A total of 2TB of storage for the OS, all programs/apps, photo storage and the catalog would probably become limiting very quickly unless you only work with low res JPGs or smart previews. And yes, it does have a GPU but not a very powerful one so many of the advanced LR features would struggle.

The newer consumer oriented LR cloud based program with its more limited feature set is the better platform for tablets and less powerful computers.

For the record, I think the current LR Classic interface is pretty good for a professional processing workflow and would be disappointed if it was changed very much.

Salut à tous, pour moi, si on a besoin de LrC en mobilité, aujourd'hui, c'est d'un ordinateur portable de dernière génération qui ne sera probablement pas beaucoup plus lourd ou coûteux qu'un iPadPro de dernière génération, d'autant plus qu'il sera beaucoup plus simple d'y connecter des SSD de grandes capacité autrement plus polyvalent que ce qu'il est possible de faire avec un iPad même gonflé ! Et probablement pour les PRO il y sera beaucoup plus simple de réunir les photos par projet dans une collection, de l'exporter en tant que catalogue, de simplement importer importer ce catalogue temporaire dans son catalogue principal sur son ordinateur central, de copier les fichiers photos du SSD vers les disques du système considéré comme central. Sinon si vous disposez de connexions internet ultra efficaces, utilisez la synchro LR avec la location de beaucoup d'espace sur le Cloud, à vous de fixer votre budget !

I'm sure you already know this, but Lightroom Classic can sync with the iPad Lightroom, allowing you to take your work with you.

@Victoria_Bampton_Lightroom_Queen Oui, mais Lr n'est pas aussi versatile que LrC, nécessite un accès Internet, nécessite de louer à Adobe de l'espace Cloud de stockage, se qui ne convient pas à chacun !
