Lot's of good info in this podcast by +Derrick Story on the iPhone 4S

an class="proflinkPrefix">+Derrick Story on the iPhone 4S. He also mentions a great app called PhotoSync that I absolutely love. PhotoSync works with both Mac and Windows and allows you to easily transfer your photos from your iPhone/iPad to your computer (or multiple computers even).

You download the app via the App Store and then you need to download and install the free client on your computer. The client runs in the background and needs to be on for the transfer to work. By default, a folder is created in your Pictures folder called PhotoSync, and this is where your photos are saved into.

For Lightroom users: I imported that PhotoSync folder into my Lightroom catalog and then I use +Jeffrey Friedl 's Folder Watch Lightroom plugin (http://bit.ly/cXN83F) to watch that folder and automatically import new photos as they appear in the future. This makes it a snap to keep your iPhone/iPad photos flowing into your Lightroom catalog.

    So if I am on the road and transfer raw files from my camera to ny iPad (which I have done), and edit them in Filterstorm pro, I can send them via Photosync directly into LR for further editing when I return home. But will I end up with raw or jpg in LR? If raw I assume no changes, if jpg I assume changes made? Do I understand this correctly?

    Hi Bob, I don't know if PhotoSync can handle raw files. I'll have to test that. I've only used it for JPG. I'd also venture a guess that anything you save out of Filterstorm is going to be a JPG copy of the original plus the new edits you made. Most iPad/iPhone apps use the JPG preview of the raw file for editing. I don't use Filterstorm, so I can't say for sure. The solution I was talking about is something I just use for getting the JPG photos from my phone/camera into Lightroom.

    Rob – Thanks, I'll try to test it also. I'm trying to get a head start on LR processing of raw photos. The added benefit of getting them into a LR folder and having them waiting there for me is interesting – I use a lot of Jeff Friedl's plug-ins but had missed that one.
