    iPad limitations vs desktop

    Lightroom Cloudy offers little more than Lightroom iOS.

    Smart Gallery Query parameters

    Sure, but it's still weird. That Alt/Opt trick should never have been hidden, for example, and how "Starts with" functions would fool most people.

    Smart Gallery Query parameters

    Have you not tried pressing the Alt/Opt key when you add a parameter? This would allow you to nest the job criteria. Yes, the smart collection is quirky and a bit confusing.

    Workflow for a trip using LR CC mobile and Classic to stay within 20Gb limit

    It'll work. Start sync in Lightroom Classic, follow the instructions about removing photos from All Synced Photos and the 20gb will free up.

    Search Replace Transfer Lightroom Plugin

    It should work and I haven't had reports of other problems in this area. I suggest checking that all the keyword metadata is present in the exactly-right form, and in general I enter IPTC location fields first and copy them to keywords.

    Mobile to Classic Metadata Issue

    Not sure what the cause of this is. It could be genuine, such as doing something to the DNG in another application such as Bridge or Photoshop. But it may be a glitch of some sort. If you know you haven't done anything in another app, just Overwrite Settings.

    How to import Fuji Raw files from an SD card

    I routinely import Fuji X-T2 compressed raw files into Lightroom Mobile on my iPhone 8 running iOS 12.3.1 using the SD adapter. What camera, what version of iOS?

    Drag n drop LR to PS

    On Windows drag and drop has never worked from Lightroom. I've complained about it many times because although it's traditionally more of a Mac method of sending files to another app, it is pretty common with Windows applications.

    Confused about LR CC and LR on ios

    Adobe would describe the various weaker mobile and LRCC as the Lightroom ecosystem and photos/edits in it are totally in common. The Lightroom world is bigger than one ecosystem, and that's where Classic comes in. It interacts with the ecosystem by syncing smart preview edits back and forth, and...

    LR Classic & LR Mobile photo trip workflow

    In which case, a safe way to delete them from the cloud is to do it in Classic. If you see them in Classic, they've downloaded safely. Then, for example, go to All Synced Photos and remove them from there. Since this removes them from synced collections, first you might want to put them into the...

    download of whole LR online gallery vs. adobe portfolio gallery

    Portfolio is more of a public-facing web site, not a vehicle for letting people download your pictures. The LR galleries serve that less-public purpose.

    Map module & Location

    Try displaying the filmstrip before you exit Map. I think you'll see what I mean. It's not right, just how it is.

    Map module & Location

    Isn't it because there's a quirk - when you return from Map, the filter is released.

    Can mobile edits and raws be moved to desktop?

    Agreeing with Louie's point about the folder location. Also note that once files are downloaded into Lightroom "Classic", you can move them where you want. I'd also suggest that you unsync the photos in Lightroom "Classic", either by removing them from All Synced Photos in the Catalog panel, by...

    Can mobile edits and raws be moved to desktop?

    When you get home, just enable Sync in your catalogue and Lightroom will handle the rest - your raw files and the edits will appear in the catalogue.

    Cloud-based "edit anywhere" workflow question

    "You say this doesn't count to my storage space? Whow!!! That sounds kind of generous from Adobe, why would they do that?" I don't know, but I guess these smart previews are the minimum needed to make the service work, and aren't that big. It's only when you put raws or other originals into the...

    Cloud-based "edit anywhere" workflow question

    It's a perfectly viable way to work (with some modifications) and is exactly what I have enjoyed doing ever since Lightroom Mobile was first introduced. "- my PC to convert these RAWs to smart-previews and upload them to the Adobe cloud " Change this to add them to a collection, and sync that...

    Giving up Adobe Subscription

    Yes, just not go into Develop or Map. New images should be from cameras supported by the version of LR.

    iPadOS impacts

    The "without using the Adobe cloud" seems the big deal for you. We don't know the answer, but it depends whether Adobe choose to change their concept of how Lightroom sync services work, and whether they choose to save metadata back to the iPad file system.

    Adobe Portfolio Domain & Host Name

    Any idea why Adobe's Portfolio user-to-user forum was locked, Rikk? See . The "get help here" link is more of a standard knowledge base page.

    Keywording a stack

    I've never seen any evidence of what you describe. Keywords only applied to the entire stack if the stack is open and the items are selected. My Syncomatic plugin can sync keywords from the top item of the stack to all the stack's members. Obviously you can do this manually, but the plugin...

    Where is actual logo image PNG file I used for LR watermark?

    Why do you ask? I only say this because I have suspicions about something in this area on Mac, and your question is relevant to my issue. I'm wondering if it is also behind your question.
