Not a problem

Lightroom Mobile Maximum Available Export Size

I take full size RAW images on my 5D Mark IV, import them into LR Desktop, put them into a LR Mobile synced Collection, edit the files in LRM and export "Maximum Available" size, and end up with files that are 700-1000KB. So a file that starts off life as a 30MB file is reduced to a file that is 1MB or smaller at the max available export size from LRM. I use this workflow often for journalistic work assignments and it's cumbersome to have to bring both my iPad and laptop to work to send a final product to the editors. And if I'm not at the office, I don't have a way at all to send full res files from the field without purchasing a separate wireless hotspot to bring with me on location.

This is not my experience. Ive just saved a 30MB Canon 5D4 raw file to the Photos app on my iPad Pro and the JPG is 7MB. A big drop yes, but that’s the nature of JPGs.

Hi Alex,


Only Smart Previews are synced from Lr Desktop to Lr Mobile.

In Dave's example he is importing directly into LrM on the iPad.

Ah yes, sorry. I am going the other way. I should shave read the post a bit slower.

I totally agree with you. There is more options in the lighroom cc desktop app. It would be a great thing if those options could be integrated in lightroom mobile
