Lightroom Mobile: No way to batch download original raw/dng files or smart previews

I'd like to shoot photos on my iPhone and review them on my iPad. I should be able to select photos manually or an album and have it download all the originals or smart previews so I don't have to manually go to each image and wait for the original to finish loading.

The workaround of choosing to export all the files after manually selecting them to force downloads is wasteful and annoying.

Carl,

This can be done on a per album basis. If I understand your workflow, after syncing your images to the cloud from your iPhone, you would go to the album on your iPad and tap the [...] icon and toggle Store Locally.  The originals or smart previews would then download locally to your iPad.  

Note: this functionality is at the album level only.

That's not what a long round of support got me last time, thanks.

"I'm afraid that is not possible you'll have to wait for the files to load to be able to edit it. Would request you to post the feedback here: https://feedback.photoshop.com/  as this forum is monitored by our engineering team."
