Hi -
I just returned from a month travelling, using LR Mobile on iPad and a combination of Nikon DSLR and iPhone 12 Pro camera. Both sources were integrated into LR Mobile environment and looked good.

When I opened LR Classic at home on my iMac, the photos all showed up, but when reviewing them, there were a few pictures that were quite different than the way they look on the iPad. Digging into it a bit further, this seems to be specific to scenarios where the source was an HEIC Panorama taken on the iPhone. No processing had been done in Photos before they were added to Lightroom Mobile using the Add from Camera roll option.

The profile used was the default Color profile applied. Because it wasn't one of my Raw files, I didn't try using any other profiles. I did start by hitting the Auto option in the Edit module and then tinkering with a few sliders.

The source photo looks fine in Photos on both iPad and iMac. So I don't think its a monitor calibration issue. All other HEIC source photos look the same on iPad and iMac.

I have included 4 screen shots of the same photo (sorry they are not all the same size - but it was really the colour cast I was trying to highlight):
- Pano in Photos on iPad
- Pano in Photos on iMac
- LR Mobile version after import and edits on iPad Pro
- LR Classic version after sync from LR Mobile

Any thoughts?

Adobe has acknowledged this bug:
https://community.adobe.com/t5/came...files-ios-and-android-captures/idi-p/12877974

Adobe employee Charlie D recently wrote, "LR iOS has already released a fix. Other LR apps will see the fix in future releases (weeks not months)". Meanwhile, you could try rolling back to LR 11.2 -- LR 11.3 and 11.3.1 are the buggiest releases in a very long time.
Thanks John - this is definitely my issue. Will either wait for 11.3.2 or rollback.
Cheers

Aha - same for me - I took several panoramas in Scotland 3 weeks ago and the colours were all weird, especially blue - I could partly correct it by changing hue's but stiil odd looking
