Last October, when we first got the hands of the new iPad Pro, we saw a frustration one mile away: although this tablet is supposedly built for professionals, you can't do anything as simple as importing images directly to Adobe's Lightroom CC .
It was still true when Nilay reviewed the tablet in November, but Apple said a solution would come – a Siri shortcut that would automatically import photos from the camera roll into Lightroom and then remove them from the camera suite.
Now, two months later, it seems that shortcut is here for both the iPad and iPhone with an update to the Lightroom app:
Only it does not remove the original images from the camera scrolling after having imported. You have to set it up yourself by creating a sequence of Siri Shortcuts. "It is legitimate to import a photo into Lightroom on a 1000-dollar tablet taking two steps and writing a macro," Nilay told me in Slack a few minutes ago.
He also says that it doesn't let you specify whether you just want to import RAW or JPEG, and you can't have Lightroom apply one of your own user-defined presets to each photo – just the standard ones.
It's a beginning.
