What I'm saying is that for some people its nothing new to see that Apple and Adobe are not playing along as well as they should be, and I see here that I am not alone with feeling like I am at a crossroads with Adobe entirely.
What I would like to know are people's thoughts on continued iPhone imports into LR classic using the compressed JPEG's (lame I know) with the intention of switching out those images with HEIC's in the future. How would you do this? Like really, if you think you have a clever way of doing it I think that would be helpful here. I do what a lot of users do, which is import my images into a dated file structure with dated folders, and rename all my images upon import using a reverse date YYYYMMDD etc etc file naming system. So assuming that you stashed away all your HEIC's together in one place, which all have the native iPhone IMG_#### file names, how in the heck would you make the switch?
In other words, it would be great if Adobe would not only listen to their loyal base LR archivists and roll out the red carpet for HEIC ASAP, but also come up with a way to bridge the imported iPhone JPEGs to their HEIC counterparts stored off catalog. Is this possible? Is there a better way? Am going crazy lol?
