How does one manage their photos coming from a Mac LR 6 to an iPad w/ Affinity

Recommended Posts

My current work flow consists of using a MacBook Pro with a external HD that has my LR 6 catalogue on it.  I want to utilize my iPad and Affinity Photo. What I can’t figure out is how to manage my photos using both softwares while keeping all my photos in one place. I do not mind moving my photos back and forth but I do not want to use apple photos.

Hi Ki Moto,

Welcome to the forums :)

One way you could achieve this is by using Lightroom Mobile on your iPad. You can find the file in Lightroom, then use
 “Open In” and send it to Affinity Photo.
Here you can do your edits etc and o
nce you have finished editing the image in Affinity Photo, you can use Export > Share to save a copy back to Lightroom. However this will be a new separate image in LR, which you won't be able to undo the adjustments made in Affinity. More functionality may be added to Affinity in the future to allow direct write-back to existing files.
