In 2017, I headed off to France for a Trafalgar tour of northern France, and a few side trips to places like Bruges and Monet’s Gardens. I captured most of the trip on my DSLR but also many shots on my iPhone X, often using Lightroom.
What I wasn’t aware of at the time was that those photos I was eagerly snapping weren’t syncing to Adobe Cloud despite my editing them, at some time I must have paused it doing so and hundreds of photos were waiting for upload.
Late 2019, I upgraded to the latest and certainly greatest iPhone, the iPhone 11 Pro. The upgrade was a worthy upgrade with the additional lens and its night mode, I was excited what it might bring for my photography. I loaded Lightroom and to my utter horror the pics from France and Belgium weren’t there.
Never was I more glad to not have on sold my old phone more than now, for typically I would have done this relatively quickly. Tonight I decided to update the iPhone X to iOS 13.5.1 in preparation for the eventual release of the iOS 14 public beta, the first time I had the luxury of a second iPhone I could do so. Thankfully, I am now syncing all those missing photos from my holiday, and other missing photos, to Adobe Cloud, should be done in about a week and a half 😂
I will certainly make sure I won’t be caught out like this again, nothing like losing your holiday photos to give you a real sense of loss.
