Question: Photos Across 3 devices without iCloud (or partially using iCloud)
I have been trying to figure out a good way to handle my photos while travelling.
I have 3 devices:
- MacBook Pro with High Sierra
- iPhone 7 (latest IOS)
- iPad Mini 4 (latest)
I take most of my photos with my iPhone and a digital camera. When i photograph using the digital camera, i shoot raw (or raw + jpeg).
I have just decided to use Photos as my main photo asset manager (provided i can work through these issues), and as such I'm in the process of migrating from Lightroom. However, I've hit a stumbling block: cloud sync is not an option for me while i'm travelling - the raw photos are just too big, and the wifi networks too slow.
My ideal workflow is something like this:
- Take photos with iphone, sync to MBP and Ipad via iCloud (or iTunes).
- Take photos with SLR, sync to Photos via MBP, then to iPad via iTunes.
- Sort photos on iPad, including favouriting and organising into albums. I would like this work to sync to my MBP Photos App.
- Edit photos in Photos app, and on iPad. For this, I require the raw files (So can't sync to ipad using icloud).
- Edit photos on MBP in Photos (after sync from iPhone).
I don't need all my SLR photos on iPhone, but don't know of any way to only sync up to the cloud on a device, instead of up and down.
If i weren't shooting in raw, there wouldn't be a problem as icloud was working fine before until i started trying to sync my camera photos.
Can anyone recommend a potential solution to my problem?
