Lightroom Version
Classic 10.3
Operating System
  1. macOS 11 Big Sur
I've been reading tons of information and "I think" i have my head wrapped around this somewhat, but please correct me if I am wrong.

I have a MacBook pro with LR Classic, iPhone and iPad Pro with LR. I plan to use a card reader with my iPad pro and put my images into the system that way. I am using Nikon so I have .NEF raw files.

Please point out any mistakes in my thoughts below:
1. Import raw files in LR on Ipad pro, when I have internet these original .nefs will sync to the cloud.
2. Edit images using iPad pro as desired and any edits sync to the cloud.
3. Now I'm home and open up LR Classic on my MacBook and when it is done syncing, I now have a copy of the original .nef along with any edits made on iPad pro (in a folder called Lightroom Cloud Import). This is a one-way import and nothing in here syncs back to the cloud.
4. Now I move the images out of that folder into my normal organizational folder structure on my MacBook.
5. If I want to retain the ability to sync any edits made to an image with the cloud, I have to place that image in a collection that syncs to the cloud (in my case collection called LR Cloud Sync). So any edits made anywhere will sync between this collection, my iPad or iPhone.
6. When I am done with the image, take it out of the LR Cloud Sync Collection.

Any thoughts on the above workflow are welcome.

Previews
I have likely been confused the whole time concerning 1:1 previews. I didn't realize they were not used in the Develop module. I normally import and have LR to build 1:1 previews and when I am processing an image in the develop module I regularly zoom in to 100% especially for sharpening. I have also been building smart previews.

Up until this point I haven't been using the Loupe View while culling images, I normally just tap the D key for develop then zoom in to 100%. Maybe this is a weird way to do it and it might make more sense to incorporate Loupe view into my workflow while culling and rating images. But if I just stick with the way I have been working, then am I just wasting time and space creating 1:1 previews.

thank you

Images that are downloaded from the cloud do sync both ways. You do not have to move them to a different folder and/or a special (synced) collection to keep them synced.

Your 6 step are pretty much what I do with my Nikon NEFs and my iPad Pro.

Lightroom imports full sized images to the cloud and down to Classic. This needs to stay within your plan limits. That 20GB plan is a little less than one camera card full of my Nikon NEFs.

Any edit adjustments made in Lightroom (cloudy) and Lightroom Classic are sync’d both ways. Keywords sync one time and one way.
