Adobe Lightroom for iPad now can import photos directly from memory cards

From CNET: Lightroom for iPad can now directly import photos from a memory card with an update Adobe released Tuesday to its image-editing and cataloging software. The move brings the tablet version of Lightroom closer to the version for PCs running Windows and MacOS -- and improves tablets, too.

For years, Lightroom users have wanted direct import abilities for iPads, something that's particularly useful when traveling without a heavier laptops. It wasn't possible until Apple improved file management features on iPadOS, released earlier this fall, however. Until now, iPad customers could import photos using a laborious detour through Apple's camera roll.

The new import ability works with USB-C or Lightning-connected memory card readers and works on iPhones as well as iPads. With it, "All of your photos and edits synchronized via Creative Cloud and accessible on all of your other devices connected to the same account, including both Lightroom and Lightroom Classic," Tom Hogarty, Adobe's photography product management leader, said in a blog post Tuesday.

You can see how it works in Hogarty's video of direct photo import. I've been testing it for a few weeks, and it works well for me.
