Using the Case Air Wireless Tethering System with Adobe Lightroom
One of the most frequently asked questions we get is…How can I use the Case Air with Adobe Lightroom? The answer is watched folders. This will work on Mac computers and Windows computers. Once setup, after each photo is taken using the Case Air and Case Remote application, the image will automatically import and show in Adobe Lightroom.

To set it up, it’s a simple two step process.

  1. Set the download location in the Case Remote application. In both Mac and Windows this is in the settings option. For specific instructions read the Mac version here or the Windows version here. Make sure that you have set Auto Download to on in the settings.
  2. In Adobe Lightroom Classic CC (does not work in Lightroom CC), set up your watched folder.


A couple things to note:

  1. This only works with the desktop versions of Case Remote and Adobe Lightroom. It does not work with on iOS (iPhone or iPad) or on Android. Adobe Lightroom Mobile doesn’t support watched folders or auto importing.
  2. You must have both applications open at the same time. The Case Remote application will transfer the file and Adobe Lightroom will import it.
  3. The first time you setup a watched folder in Adobe Lightroom, the folder must be empty. If you already have images in the folder, you will need to clear them out or choose a new download location.
