Lightroom Mobile for the iPad and iPhone does not have the capability to process raw files. (It is not the full Lightroom Program). I am not a user but I am aware that it has the ability to sync with your Desktop/ Laptop Computer running the full Lightroom application.
There are lots of free tutorials available on Adobe TV, see the link below.
That’s a great pity. I’m looking for a Mobile Workflow for when I’m on holiday. With all the changes in iOS 8, it still can’t keep a RAW file in one piece after import. I’ve found Photogenie can edit the RAW but back home I’d be using Lightroom, since the iOS 8 / Yosemite iCloud Photo Library won’t import more than a quarter of what is in my Lightroom on disk. I need a Cloud backup.
Thanks for the swift reply
like you I also want to be able to import raw files into Lightroom mobile whilst I am on holidays.
I thought it was going to be the perfect solotion for travel photography negating the need to travel with a laptop.
It is extremely disappointing- perhaps this is something the adobe engineers can add to the next version ???
Adobe makes no secret of the fact that Lr Mobile only works with Smart Previews, LInda - even the briefest amount of research will confirm that.
