Do I have to have a paid CC account in order to import ARW files into the mobile app?
I'm a travel photog and prefer to just take my Galaxy tab with me to preview and edit when traveling. I just switched to a Sony A6000 and didn't find out until I was in another country that the mobile app wouldn't import my files. I tried moving them from my memory card to the actual tablet memory first and it still didn't see the files. I really don't want to drag a laptop around with me! Thanks.
Why don't you try to sync the files over to the Creative Cloud library and then import them into the mobile app, through the same library.
Make sure you are signing in using the same Adobe ID.
