What I have run into is the following: 1. Load images from an SD card onto my iPad. 2. Open in LR Mobile, (with no internet, with synch paused). 3. Select/edit 3-4 images. 4. Attempt to export/share those images to another app. E.g. WordPress. 5. LR says “cannot complete. No internet connection. Images not synched.” Or words to that effect.
I do not want to synch my images to Adobe Cloud, I just want to manage my backing up and exporting/sharing on my own. I tried on one trip, based in part on your positive experience Bob. I used the Adobe system, created albums of 4-6 images, retrieved the web address, shared those albums via WordPress entries. OK so far. But then I got home, tried to put all the images from the trip on my local storage directly from SD cards, merging with downloads of the ones I had shared already, and wound up with a confusing mess. The Cloud-based approach is ok if that is all you use, if you always or usually have a robust connection to the net. I have found it too complicated to use in alternation with LR Classic. As I said earlier, I will give it another try just because I really really want to leave the laptop home on this next trip. Even though I distrust and dislike the app’s constant attempts to use limited bandwidth.
