The Lightroom syncing process is easy once you download the plug-in from the Photosmith app website. Once installed on your computer and added to Lightroom, the computer automatically sees your iPad photos. You can sync all photos, or only specific events. Your computer and iPad need to be on the same Wi-Fi network in order for the sync feature to work.
I found that I could only color code the photos one at a time, which was frustrating. It would be nice to select multiple pictures to tag all at once. I am hoping this will become available in a future update. Also, once you flag a picture, it will not sync over to Lightroom.
Before you download this awesome new app, you will want to make sure it is compatible with your camera. Canon and Nikon cameras with either RAW or JPEG files work well. Photosmith may work with other cameras so the developer has posted a compatibility list on their website.
The cost for the app is hefty at $17.99. However, for those of us who spend hundreds of dollars on camera equipment, Photosmith is a minimal investment to be able to leave your computer at home. If you use Adobe Lightroom as your main photo software and own an iPad, this app is definitely worth checking out!
