I have recently done the following experiment to try a new workflow.
Download the raw files using the camera kit on the ipad on to Photos
Once all photos are in
Open lightroom cc on ipad
Sync the few photos you wish to sync
Once the computer:
Save a copy of the photo from the sd card on to the drive
Save that photo on to lightroom classic
Wait until the lightroom cc syncs down a copy of the previous file you uploaded from the ipad
Now compare both files on lightroom classic
Files have different spectrums
I would've thought there would no changes when the files travelled on to the adobe cloud and back down
Are others experiencing this?
I am probably not going to do this since it takes a great amount of time to sync up using the lightroom on the ipad.
probably use it as a separate outlet and have a second set of photo backup when on the go
but not for serious workflow
>Files have different spectrums
Do you mean histogram? What you are likely seeing is that on the iPad, Lightroom can only use the Adobe Standard profile for your images. You might have set a different default or applied auto tone on your desktop. I am quite certain that Lightroom if you goi through the cloud does not touch your raw data in any way and that you just get a plain raw file as if you downloaded it directly to your desktop. It also automatically applies lens corrections on the iPad while it won't do that on your Desktop Lightroom by default. Bottom line is check if all develop settings, including those in calibration, are actually the same on both raw files.
Thanks a lot.
That was the thing. I was looking at the histogram changes and indeed the ipad had lens correction by default (good catch)
