All "i" devices run iOS and for the full version of LR you need a Real Desktop/Notebook Operating system like Mac OS X or Windows.
The only version of LR that will run a "i" device is LR Mobile.
Have you used LR Mobile yet? Is it worth buying?
Thanks, Just Shoot Me. I really appreciate you taking the time to answer questions. I really like your code name too.
LR Mobile is only available, other than a 30 day trial, for subscribers to the Photography plan. $9.99 a month for LR, PS and LR Mobile.
Yes I tried LR Mobile, didn't care for it as it was to limited. LR Mobile is really for syncing One computer and one LR catalog to multiple mobile devices, either Apple "i" devices or Android devices. But there are problems with that from what I've read. Also from what I read it does have some editing functions but nothing like the Real Lightroom.
Not sure it works with the pen stick on Apple products.
I found some more reading on it, in particular:
Though folks like it, they say pretty consistently that it is limited. Always good to talk to folks who have really used it.
I use it mostly to get images into certain social apps (instagram) quickly. I also use it to get phone images onto my desktop Lightroom. However, it is indeed extremely limited. It is something completely different than "Lightroom on mobile". If you treat it like that it can once in a while be useful but mostly in the very gimmicky way of being able to do some simple edits on images from your couch. Not something most of us would do regularly. It can't replace and in fact completely relies on a normal Lightroom installation on a real computer. If you are looking for a more portable Lightroom solution, I'd recommend looking into a sub notebook that still runs a full windows or mac OS X version such as a MacBook Air or a Microsoft Surface Pro.
I only use it to take a collection of photos to show people, and it can be used via Lightroom on the web as a client selection tool, but as an editor is is no replacement. However I do know people who use it on location and swear by it to help their workflow!
Hi Jao vdL,
Ah, okay. So that confirms it. I was hoping that I could do it all on a iPad Pro but it's clear I will have to get something much heftier for LR. I was looking at the Pro for the Apple Pencil/graphic arts feature. Man! That looks slick! But I also really need the expert photo editing. LR is one stunning piece of software as I am reading in the Kelby and Martin books.
I know what I am going to order for my computer now. Can't wait to get started!
