And yet I do keep answering you, accepting I need to answer on your terms rather than mine....
If provding no answer and no workflow justifications for the design and use of LrM are answers on your own terms, I'll stop asking you questions. I see I'm not the only one here who's awaiting such answers.
So, I say what's more convenient than a single click, in those very words, and yet you still claim I've not told you how it's convenient.
Ignoring the steps and time necessary to get to that one click represent IMHO a very poor answer.
Q: How Do You Get To Carnegie Hall
? A: Easy, practice!
And now we'll dismiss the joke and the bit about the real work of practicing...
But I don't need to answer on your terms, do I?
You don't answer the question at all on any
terms. The data just magically and quickly finds it's way onto the iPad, it's hardware and software inabilities and the lack of functionality of LrM versus just using a tool that's far better (a Laptop) isn't on your terms in the answer because if you did address these flaws, you'd see they are massive problems in the product's current design architecture. Will it get better? Of course. Is it ready for prime time? Not at all. Even the monetary cost (the subscription) is dismissed because part of that cost additionally provides Photoshop but many people don't need or want Photoshop. Or being forced to build Smart Previews and load them onto a cloud they don't use, another set of points that are not on your terms and thus not under discussion because they are on my terms.
LrM doesn't provide a single useful feature or advantage today that I need and apparently I'm not the only person who feels that way.
LrM isn't a sweetener or even a bad toy, it's a badly implemented product. And as long as it doesn't suck the resources of Adobe such that LR6 is a worthy upgrade, I'll be fine with it. And I'll ignore it until it provides something useful. Today that's not the case and I told you more than once why.
I think the problem here is that you are trying to place LrM too firmly on the critical path.
No, I just want a solution to a problem that isn't a complete waste of my time. LrM 1.0 is just that, a huge waste of my valuable time and I told you why. I also have a vastly better tool to do that work without the restrictions of the tablet (it's a laptop). If like you I had the laptop in the car instead of the iPad, and
if I felt that was a great time to be working on my images, I could do that better and faster than you did and that's the rub. The tablet + LrM (1.0) is a sick joke compared
to even an older MacBook and LR5.4.
Bottom line for me and I suspect many others: LrM doesn't provide a single compelling advantage over older solutions that don't require the extra time, the use of only the Adobe cloud, a subscription, or a faster and more efficient workflow that existed long before people used tablets. Not one. As I've said, it's at this point a solution in search of a problem. What advances we see in tablets and LrM in the future doesn't change those issues today
. At such a time those limitations are lessened, LrM may be a very viable product. Today it's not even a toy, it's a joke built by and large by Adobe marketing. I'm sure I speak for most that I hope that changes. I'd love to be even a bit enthusiastic about the product. The product has to earn that enthusiasm and 1.0 doesn't. End of story.
