If the iPad Pro is a capable device with the Apple Pencil?

iOS is a closed system unless jailbroken, can you load Presets into Lr and Actions into Ps on iPad Pro?

If you use Affinity Photo, drag/dropping textures and overlay is actually super easy. And the Apple Pen is actually very pleasant to use, the crazy low latency makes it somewhat better than Wacom.

I recently bought an iPad Pro for that purpose. Currently testing it to retouch a full wedding and it's looking good for now. I might end up selling my Macbook Pro retina 15.
- Lightroom Mobile is MUCH faster. Zooming in and working on ajustments is much faster
- Using the selective brush tool with the iPad pen is amazing
- If you are subscribed to Adobe CC, all RAW files are directly synced to your main PC and only smart previews remain on your iPad
- Have to upload raw on iPad before uploading to Lightroom
- Some options missing, there are the ones I miss but found alternatives
- Presets: you can apply the preset on a synced pictures and then copy/paste the settings on new photos instead.
- Skin smoothing: you can just apply the brush and reduce clarity, it's the same thing
- Healing brush: You can use Photoshop Fix for iPad for that and there is direct access from the Lightroom app
Also have Affinity Photo to replace Photoshop and did not have time to play with it enough but looks powerful enough to replace Photoshop for my advanced needs.
Lightroom for PC/Mac is annoyingly slow no matter how powerful your system is, that's why I did not go for Surface Pro.
Well I saw their review, before the iOS 11 update and the recent Adobe update.

Not really mobile reason, I just enjoy editing pics while sitting on my couch watching tv shows drinking beer . Unfortunately cannot work with a reference image, that would be great but usually don't have trouble matching all my photos.AncasterRFD wrote: ↑Sep 25th, 2017 11:33 amHey aerok, this for mobile reasons? I'm editing a wedding right now and doing it in my grey room (light controlled). I've got undiagnosed ADD lol, desktop windows open playing youtube music, check/replying email, watching a video seminar in the corner, have reference images open for white balance/colour, and have RFD open replying to you lol. I'm on a 27" 5K iMac and wouldn't be able to do that in the space of an iPad Pro. When I ordered my refurb iMac, I lucked out and Apple sent me one with the best CPU which they sometimes do with whatever is in stock so it's zippy with anything I do in Lr/Ps. I don't usually edit camera photos on vacation (just iPhone) maybe an iPad Pro is a great way!

I find that even with a beast of a workstation, Lightroom can be annoyingly slow, everything is just so much smoother on the iPad, even with heavy RAW files.

Most photographers look into the iPad Pro for a mobile alternative, I'm just crazy enough to completely replace my main workstation.

I agree, I have a beast rig with 64 GBs of RAM and i7, and LR still crawls at times.

How do you upload your raw files to the iPad?
Sep 25th, 2017 4:44 pm
Tried over cloud, didn't like it so now using SD adapter.
