"Syncing your photos from Lightroom to iPad"


North Kingstown, US
          

What strategies do other people use to sync their Lightroom photos to IPad?

I converted from Aperture a year ago (great decision BTW). But the one downside has been how to get my pictures easily from Lightroom to my IPad.

I know you can export to your hard drive - and sync through iTunes. That's what I'm currently doing - but you lose the album capability. It only allows two levels of folders. I would really like all my collections to end up as individual albums on the IPad.

What do you folks do?

This is my general workflow for both personal stuff and paid shoots:

• Output web-res images form Lightroom to a new folder on the desktop.
• Import images form that folder into a new Album in iPhoto
• That Album is now available to sync with my iPhone and iPad

Right now on my iPhone and iPad I have twenty-something Albums, some personal pics, some by subject, and some paid shoots.

Another benefit of this method, for those few who may still be using iWeb, is that dragging the iPhoto Album to an iWeb page instantly generates a photo gallery.

This process is very quick. I can get a few hundred images from a client shoot on my portables and my website in an hour.

Thanks to another Nikonian, I started using the Publish to Hard Drive service in LR. This allows you to define albums, and add/delete photos from them. LR will sync each album to a subfolder of a folder on your disk and I have this folder defines to iTunes as the place to sync photos from. Each of our iDevices (his & hers phones/pads) can pick up the subfolders desired. I have the export preset so it is optimized for a retina ipad.

I further use keywords and smart selections to define each subfolder; for instance "Cory's Wedding'. This makes it easy to add or delete images from each set.

The big advantage of the Publish service over simple exporting is that it deletes images from the subfolders as well as adding new ones.
