Based on your described/preferred workflow with Lr CC and the iPad, then the only way, at present, to transfer the photos to your desktop or laptop is to sync via the Adobe Cloud.
Any reason for using CC in this workflow? Seems to me that you really need Classic CC.
Thanks, Ian. That was definitely what I thought but I was hoping that had changed.
John, I have been using LR for a long time both on desktops and laptops. I was hoping to switch my travel machine to an iPad Pro for size and convenience (as well as the fact that I am underwhelmed by the newest generation MacBook Pro).
I hope Adobe provides a way to do this sometime that doesn’t rely solely on cloud sync, LR on an iPad could really be fantastic but it‘s useless to me without it.
