Adobe Light­room CC for iOS just added the short­cut Ap­ple promised

Sun.Star Pampanga - - TECHNEWS! -

Im­port­ing pho­tos just got a teensy bit less ridicu­lous

Last Oc­to­ber, when we first got our hands on the new iPad Pro, we saw a frus­tra­tion com­ing a mile away: though this tablet is sup­pos­edly built for pros, you can’t do some­thing as sim­ple as im­port pho­tos di­rectly into Adobe’s Light­room CC.

That was still true when Ni­lay re­viewed the tablet in Novem­ber, but Ap­ple said a work­around was com­ing — a Siri Short­cut that would au­to­mat­i­cally im­port pho­tos from the cam­era roll into Light­room, then delete them from the cam­era roll.

Now, two months later, it ap­pears that short­cut is here for both iPad and iPhone with an up­date to the Light­room app:

Only it doesn’t ac­tu­ally delete the orig­i­nal pho­tos from your cam­era roll after im­port­ing them. You’ve gotta set that up your­self by cre­at­ing a se­quence of Siri Short­cuts. “It is le­git in­sane that im­port­ing a photo to Light­room on a 1000 dol­lar tablet takes two steps and writ­ing a macro,” Ni­lay told me in Slack just min­utes ago.

Also, he says it doesn’t let you spec­ify whether you only want to im­port RAWs or JPEGs, and you can’t have Light­room ap­ply one of your own user-gen­er­ated pre­sets to each photo — only the de­fault ones.

It’s a start.
