Please Increase The Quality of Saved JPEGs For LR Mobile

Currently, the saved quality of JPEGs on Lightroom (LR) mobile and Lightroom CC for the PC are different.

The JPEGs that I save on my iPad (RAW to JPEG) using LR mobile, are about 1/2 the size as the JPEGs that I save on LR CC for my PC.

I realize LR Mobile is on a mobile device and maybe a few years ago, storage was a concern, but professionals should have the option to save out JPEGs to 100% or to TIFFs when converting a RAW image.

There should be no compromise in quality when saving a RAW to JPEG on LR Mobile. Right now the options are "Small" or "Maximum available", and the "Max" setting is half the size of a "Full Size" JPEG saved to a PC.

These days, iPads and iPhones have tons of storage and are very fast. Please increase the number of JPEG options or allow us to set the compression ourselves. iPads are to the point of where there are usable for editing by professional photographers in the field. We need to be able to convert to the highest quality, non-RAW image possible.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Export in Best Quality JPEG.

We need to be able to export our edits in full quality jpegs. A lot of us pro photographers are moving to the mobile platform, especially with the advancements in the iPad Pro. Affinity photo has the ability to do this no problem, so its not a hardware issue. The same RAW file saved thru affinity and Lightroom mobile come out to 15mb and 3mb respectively and look way different to the trained eye. Please, please make this happen in the next update. The ability to save more than 15 images at a time to the camera roll was HUGE, now if this were to happen I’d even be willing to pay more.
