Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Synchronizing photos to a mobile device, part of Lightroom 5: 03 Basics of Image Sharing.
…If you have a mobile device, you may very well…want to share some of your images via that device.…For example, I have an iPad Mini, and I'd like to save some of my favorite…images to my iPad Mini so that I…can actually share those images very easily with others.…This is essentially a two step process.…And the basic process is the same regardless…of what type of mobile device you're using.…The first step is to export the images in a particular way.…And the second step is to actually then synchronize that…folder full of images that you've exported onto your mobile device.…
Let's take a look at how that process works using my iPad Mini as an example.…I'll go ahead and start off by selecting the…images that I would like to add to my device.…So I'll click on one image and then Shift-Click on…another image in order to select a range of photos, in…this case, just three images that I would like to…add to a folder that I will synchronize with my device.…I'll then click the Export button at the bottom of the left…panel in the Library Module, and that will bring up the export dialogue.…

Q: When I access the Identity Plate Editor dialog, I get a message in that dialog that says "No options for Lightroom identity plate." This is different from what I see in the lesson on modifying the identity plate. How do I resolve this issue?
A: The difference you are seeing relates to changes Adobe made in version 5.4 for Lightroom, related to support for the new Lightroom Mobile application. The new "Lightroom" option for the Identity Plate popup enables access to the sign-in and synchronization for Lightroom Mobile. To personalize the identity plate you can choose the "Personalized" option from the Identity Plate popup, which will reveal the set of controls for changing the identity plate.
