Hi!
I'm using lightroom mobile on my iPad 4.
I imported Sony raw-files (.arw). They are shown up on the iPad. But if I try to import them to lightroom mobile to work on them it tells: no pictures available.
I got lightroom mobile to work on my Sony raw-files!!!
Best regards

Hi Sven,

Lightroom mobile cannot import raw files of any kind directly from the iPad camera roll. You must sync these photos to Lightroom mobile via Lightroom on the desktop. An overview of how this works can be found here:

Ok!
If this it is - Lightroom will be useless for me (and maybe a lot others).
I make my photos on a tripp, import them to my ipad and want to work with them.
I want to be finished when i'm home.
What you are telling me is, that my iPad is useless until I was home!
Bad. Very bad!
Best regards
Sven
