My son, an avid amateur photographer, takes photos on a DSLR and processes them on a Windows PC using Lightroom CC. He needs to send these on a regular basis to his daughter (my granddaughter) who uses an iPad Pro 11" to create content for Instagram and Youtube.
Can anyone recommend a good workflow to share image files and occasional video files between the PC and the iPad Pro?
They currently use Dropbox to transfer the photo files, but this is a bit slow considering the upload/download bottleneck.
I plan to purchase a portable SSD (Samsung T5) for my granddaughter to use with her iPad Pro. She needs more storage for her growing collection of video files, processed with Luma Fusion. Could the proposed portable SSD be used to share batches of photo and video files between the Windows PC and the iPad Pro? I don’t know if the iPad Pro could read the same disk format as that used by the Windows PC. The Samsung T5 SSD would use a USB-C connection; I’m not sure if the Windows PC has a USB-C port
Would a NAS device be worthwhile? How would the iPad Pro access files on a NAS? My son has an Airport Extreme (the latest wifi-AC version) - would it work to connect a portable HDD to the Airport Extreme to function as a low-budget NAS? The Airport Extreme is set up in bridge mode, functioning as a WAP, not as a router.
Any other ideas?
