Linear (non-standard) profile in L R Mobile

I have been, successfully, trying out linear profiles in LRC. They are very helpful for certain images. The problem is, when the image is posted to LR Mobile.

First, while reviewing the images, I get a pop up message that editing in Mobile will lose settings as it is not a standard profile. That would be ok, as I was just using LRM to display the images. The problem is, the image is not rendered as it was with the original linear profile…it is much brighter and washed out as if another profile (tone curve) had been used.

I had a mix of ‘Adobe Neutral’ and linear profile images. The ‘AN’ images rendered as shown on LRC, the linear were washed out.

Is this a bug or ‘as designed’?

Neither. You will have to make sure that the profile is also available to cloud apps, because Lightroom Classic does not sync profiles. You can use Lightroom desktop for this. Install it and import your profile(s) into it. They are then be synced to the cloud, so Lightroom mobile will have them too.

I just loaded the profiles and did an initial test. Mobile now showed the linear profile, but the image had washed out (lighter toned) areas. i Went into profiles, switch to another profile, then back to ’linear’. This ‘fixed’ the image.

I have tried this a few times, plus looked at on browser. Rendering of image is not using the custom profile. I can get it to work on mobile app (by flipping profiles), but that does not help on browser, specifically if sending link to someone.
