Q&A In Lightroom Mobile

you have to have the IPhone seven to shoot raw. What about? I've had compatibility. You have to have the latest IPad. Yeah. Thank you for asking. That's actually great news. You don't have to have the IPhone seven. All you have to have is IOS 10 to shoot raw. So if you have IOS 10 on an IPhone, you can shoot raw. Which means that my IPhone six that I've been using I can shoot that now. Not all IPhone. Six s is what I've been shooting s I want to say, in addition to the IPhone seven. Um, the success. Five s c. I believe you have to look and see what supports IOS 10. But IOS 10 is the gating factor More than the device. The IPad. You run the risk of looking like a tourist at the Grand Canyon when you take pictures of it. But it's a really nice screen. This has This is a brighter screen and a less reflective screen than this. So this is actually a great capture device if you don't mind looking a little funny. And the 9.7 ipad has the same lens camera as the success. It actually has a real...

ly good camera built into it. I know it's tough to keep track of all the different hardware and software, but yeah, for all of you who haven't upgraded your IPhone, I'm not an apple salesman or something. There's absolutely nothing wrong with the last IPhone you had, but you should be shooting raw with it. My question about the IPad was to do the editing on the IPad, and to have it connects to the cloud and everything. Do you need the latest IPad? No. No. Okay, that's that's a good question to you. Do not you do not, Um I think for the sake of consistency, while you might not want to capture, um, the same format, being up to date on your OS is always a good idea. But you don't need some brand new IPad to do all the stuff we've been doing. I've been working on a, uh and IPad pro. I've got a mini at home that I use. I've got an air that I often use. I would say there there is less need the benefits to an ipad pro. Just so you guys know, um, keyboard, um, being able to use a stylus, the apple pencil and it's really the display. The display sort of does this auto white balance thing and its a lot brighter. Um, so I certainly enjoy the benefits, But don't feel like you need it. Yeah, that's I'm glad you brought this up. I don't ever want people to feel like they need to buy more gear. That's not as much as we all like here. It's not necessary. It's it's You can do amazing things on the stuff you've got in any of the cloud applications, including portfolio. Is there any notion of sizes baked into it? Like some of the other cloud places we might put our photos, Our clients can have, you know, a Web version or print version kind of baked in? Yeah, yeah, so sort of, depending on where the file comes from, that dictates the size. So if you have, if you dump your huge raw files into the desktop, you're gonna get a proxy file on the Web and on the mobile device. We're not gonna try to pass some enormous Haas obliged medium format file to your little I device, but when we're coming from a mobile device. We're always taking the full resolution file on making sure you have that else. Where when you share something on the Web. For instance, when I shared those downloads with my dad, I'm not sharing multiple 24 megapixel captures. I'm sharing what we consider a mid range resolution appropriate for sharing their all high fidelity and precise. They're not all the very full risk. So mobile Desktop is full rez. Desktop to Mobile is a proxy.

This class was my favorite of all the 2016 Photo Week post classes. Bryan is a great teacher approaching his topics from a working photographer perspective, as well as an Adobe insider viewpoint. I starting using all the material Bryan covered immediately after the class, and have already sold a stock photo. I am completely sold on his reasoning about taking the time to organize your catalog. I highly recommend any class past or future Bryan is teaching.

Bryan's passion for the Lightroom Mobile workflow makes it easy to understand and adopt. He demonstrates with easy-to-follow examples how to capture and edit in the field on the IPad or IPhone. (Though not mentioned during the class the Android app is equally facile.) I am now ready to fully adopt LR Mobile and apply is to my workflow. Bryan is an articulate and natural trainer, and makes this topic completely transparent and approachable.
