iPads and similar tablet style computers are the future of photo editing! We’re not going to be tethered to our desktops and laptops for much longer, so this week I wanted to share with you the photography workflow I’ve been using with my iPad to fully manage, edit, retouch, and share my photos.
One of the really important things that I have been doing is using Siri Shortcuts on the iPad to automate parts of my editing workflow to make them MUCH easier!
This includes everything step I take on the iPad! Including:
- Getting RAW files onto the iPad
- Importing those photos into Lightroom CC using Siri Shortcuts
- Deleting photos from the camera roll once imported into Lightroom CC
- Organizing the photos in Lightroom CC
- Culling & making edit selections
- Editing the RAW files
- Retouching photos in Affinity Photo for iPad
- Saving the retouched photo into Lightroom CC on the iPad
- Saving copies of the photo to Dropbox, editing all the way through exporting and sharing images via cloud services like Dropbox
There’s a lot going on here, so strap in!
Lightroom is a powerful photography tool, but the problem with powerful tools is they’re often complicated and intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be that way.
