Lightroom Mobile import feature request

I am finding that with smart previews and LR Mobile- as it has become more sophisticated- I am often able to do 70+% of post production in LR M, and sometimes everything I need to publish- without using LR at all. Amazing (praise for an outstanding job!)

An idea:

1) allow us import in LR Moblie directly into ipad from our SD card with the Apple camera cable-  but as SMART PREVIEWS only- LR Mobile would import the raw file- generate a smart preview- then delete the raw file on ipad- only saving smart preview on the ipad-
which would then link back directly to the raw file on my Mac and sync any work I have done once I get to the office and officially import those images-in fact- LR on my Mac would remind me 'You have new unsync'd photos from LR M- import now?" or something similar.

This will give me more flexibility and mobile workflow options- without requiring a laptop (of course- we have to keep those cards filled for importing actual raw images later)


2) very basic spot heal /clone in LR Mob please (I'm sure its been requested a thousand times) - I am tired of jumping apps.

3) please develop a simple yet effective tie in for mobile VSCO users to apply presets on their ipad and link back into LR Mobile (eg- export to VSCO- then link back and voila image is updated with preset)

4) creative filters and effect sin LR Mobile should come standard in LR on our Mac/pc. silly we should have to search for them on the net . . .

still amazing what you have done.

Feature requests work best if you separate them into individual posts so that users can comment and hit the vote button for the feature(s) they like.  Consider separating your individual requests into their own posts. 

Also realize that one or more of these may exist already and add your voice to those. We can't consolidate multiple features in a request with the original request very easily and we want to accumulate all supporters of a feature.

+1 , but no need to delete raw file . May help though keeping space on iPad until synced , or how about once it has been synced then the raw is deleted on iPad , thus lightrooom mobile used the smart preview , and no need to keep an eye on space constant;y
