Here's my import process:
-Attach card reader to UBS-C port, insert SD card
-Open Files.app and browser to the SD Card
-Select the photos you want to import into LR
-Select "Share" in the lower left corner of the Files.app
At this point, I should be able to select Lightroom. However, the LR option ONLY appears if the number of files is 10 or fewer. More than 10 files and the Lightroom icon does not appear. With this process, no more than 10 images can be imported into LR at a time.
Has anyone experienced this issue? Has anyone found a workaround? And yes, I have reported this to Apple.
Thanks for your feedback.
Lightroom tethering to ipad pro
Apple is upgrading to iPadOS for all us iPad users that adds some pretty important new functions.
I can now use a usb-c dongle in my iPad and connect a external harddrive to that and a SD card. I can then copy files from the card to the drive.
But in LR I lack the options to import files. In short we need a way to import files with the new files tools. Would be perfect to be able to edit all the raw files on my external drive.
I am feeling hopefull that Adobe will the see the very GREAT opportunity and added usability that this will add to LR mobile.
Unfortunately, I am in the same position as David - I bought the Apple tablet to edit my images in a more efficient manner. Now I find myself wondering if that Windows laptop was such a bad thing.
Clearly, this all falls back to the issue of Adobe being non-responsive to its users.
I just imported 200+ jpg files from an SD card directly into LR mobile. I am using an iPad (2018) and the new LR mobile (5.0). The steps I used from the LR screen:
Add photos – From files – SD card – Select all – Open (there is a long delay at this point where nothing seems to happen. Eventually, you should see the count of all photos go up.)
I’m anxious to hear others results. Someone should inform the product manager of the updates included in 5.0.
