Super easy, right? I know. Pretty cool!

Have a great Monday, everybody!

    I would love to know a quick and EASY way to download a few images to my iPhone 15. I use Merlin on my iPhone and I have many bird images in LRcc. Merlin will not download to my desktop because it does not have the M1 chip. Appreciate any inputs. Dale

    This is the opposite of precook in my eyes. We all take too many pictures with our iPhones. Now we have to clean up the pictures in the foto app and in Lightroom. Any bad point, Adobe does count the space used by JPEGs. Not sure about HEIF. So my Acobe cloud store was filled with Gigabytes of unwanted pictures.
    I think it is a better advise to disable it and import just the few pictures you really want.
