I just upgraded to Lightroom 5. About to take an extended photo trip to Africa. I've been offered the use of an iPad2 so I don't have to carry my laptop with me - only thing is, I want to be able to use Lightroom on it. Anyone know if it's possible to put Lightroom on an iPad2? Or do I need the mobile version of Lightroom? And is that a separate purchase?
You can't run Lightroom on an iPad; it is an OS X application not an iOS application.
Lightroom Mobile requires an Adobe Creative Cloud subscription. Do you have that? It's not available if you purchased the standalone version of Lightroom.
