LR Mobile sync performance is almost unusably bad. Is there a way to improve this?
I've been trying to sync 2000 photos from my iPhone 6S+ to LR Desktop. It's been three evenings babysitting this process, and it's still less than half way through. I'm on the latest iOS10 and have iCloud Photo Library turned on. Using latest versions of LR (2015.7 CC on Desktop and 2.5.2 on iPhone)
Three key issues:
I like the idea having my phone automatically sync up with LR Desktop. The magical promise sounds so much better than having to remember to manually import the photos; however, in practice, the creative cloud sync just doesn't seem to work well enough.
Thanks for the detailed thread.
I think the problem is the lack of space on your Phone.Check how much space is showing up as available in Lr App.
It is expected from Lr mobile to take a maximum 10 secs to sync each image as it is syncing the Full Res DNG(if opted).
Also moving this thread to Lightroom for mobile & Apple TV
I have the same issue with same version and app. I've managed to speed up the sync from ZERO transfer rate to pretty consistent flickering of Syncing/Pending status on the iPhone LR.
What I did was to go to the iPhone LR and press on the "Lr" logo at the top left of the screen. It will take you to a screen with your name, email, and the status of subscription.
Then just scroll down on that page to the near end. Press on "Clear Cache"
This made a huge difference. But out of 160 image needing to upload, I had to clear the cache 3 times whenever it began to slow down.
I hope it can help your situation.
