DOWNLOADABLE option only accessible via web version... PLEASE add "share settings" to the iphone version to restore full use. As is my clients couldn't download any pics until I figured out how to. Not practical. THANKS!!

Share settings are in iPhone version? Including Save to Camera Roll.

Do you mean from a shared web gallery?
Imagine that’s what you mean as you’re taking clients downloading images..
If so, login to adobe on web browser (can be your phone or tablet) select Lightroom and select the ‘world’ icon gallery from the left list , then a window of options will pop up . Here you can select download option . Which will let your clients download a zip of all images in the gallery from the overview thumbnail page.
And when viewing a single image the download button will only download that image.

Granted it’s wee bit of a workaround than having that option to begin with in the share options in mobile app.

One thing to note, and please test this for yourself.
Is the downloaded images are full original size but have lots of compression and are still 3mb each .
This is potentially a big problem for myself , and clients .
As they might be thinking that’s the actual quality of hi res shots , and be tempted to use them .
Plus adobes server speed is 1mb/s ! So for a 30 image gallery that’s 100mb to download and wait for.
Where at this stage I only want them to have low res for selection / review purposes.- and really quickly with a small download.

Please if you test this and this is a potential problem for you as well , raise another ‘problem’ case to back up mine and they might give us some more options within the share web gallery function.
To hopefully allow a download option and size option.

I had the same experience you have to to the web app and allow downloads there.
However, the images you download are lower res and not the originals, which is ok for family sharing.
I guess you still have to use dropbox or onedrive if you want full big res pictures.

Bottomline the functionality is missing from the desktop app which could be added no problem

If Originals have been uploaded from LrCC (Desktop/Mobile) then they should be downloadable.

If they are from synced Collections in Lr Classic then they’ll only be Smart Previews.

I did a trial taking pictures on an iphone 6s on LrCC.  DNG's and JPG's into a folder.

Then went into the web app and allowed download.

Downloaded the files on the computer and the files were shrunk.

The DNG came in as a JPG.

I guess it is meant more as a family sharing tool were really nobody cares about a 22Mb DNG, instead a 2.4Mb JPG is more than enough res for most activities
