Lightroom Mobile iOS: Imported RAW is not cropped.

Environment:

  • iPad Pro 11
  • iOS 14.2
  • Lightroom v6.0.1
  • Canon PowerShot G5 X Mark II

Procedure:

  1. Import RAW to Photos (In my situation: Canon PowerShot G5 X Mark II)
  2. In Photos, tap the RAW, select "Edit", and crop the photo.
  3. Open Lightroom, import this photo.
  4. The photo imported is not cropped.

Expected:

The imported photo is cropped.

Could you try to disable the RAW-filter from the to 3-dot menu within the Lr import dialog and have just the Photos-filter enabled. Afterwards Lr will import the cropped rendition from the photos app.

Hope this helps - Guido/ Lr Mobile QE

Probably because the iOS crop is non destructive, as is Lightroom.

FYI: you can import directly into LR, you know?

Thank you for the reply!

I see in VSCO and Polarr, the photos imported is already cropped. Would you give it a try to make it possible in LR?

(I know it can be imported directly into LR, however it doesn't suit my workflow.)

Imo, it’s not a LR bug (for this time) but a workflow.

By the way, using VSCO or any other destructive editing software BEFORE importing in LR is probably not the best way to work ;)

Sorry for the confusion😂

I mean:

A photo which is cropped by built-in Photos app, if imported in VSCO or Polarr, it is correctly cropped. Whereas in LR, it's imported uncropped.

"(I know it can be imported directly into LR, however it doesn't suit my workflow.)"  is talking about me "using Photos do a preprocessing, other than importing to LR directly"
