I have been working with LR mobile for some time without using the desktop version until I recently acquired a new desktop with the grunt to run LR. I loaded my latest batch of photos from camera to LR Desktop. I then started to sync these to LR Mobile. On opening the LR mobile app I found the new photos downloading/syncing from the desktop but horror of horrors all my existing collections in LR on the iPad have disappeared! Is there a way of retrieving these?
Any advice very much appreciated. Cheers
It sounds like that you connected a new catalog to your existing Adobe id. Normally Lr Desktop comes up with a warning alert if you want to connect the new catalog which will erase the previous one. Did you notice this alert? - Guido
Thanks for reply. I did see that warning but didn't realize it would 'clean slate' the entire LR mobile collections. I have now recovered most of the photos lost but it'll be a very very long task recreating collections and re-editing the photos. Can't understand logic of not having the ability to retain what already existed in mobile.
