    Which files can I get rid of?

    Hi, I'm doing some file tidy up work on my machine before my nice shiny new M1 Pro arrives early next month and in my Lightroom directory I have the files shown in the screenshot. I know I can get rid of the V10 files now I've updated to V11 and I know there are older backups in the backups...

    Cloud storage being used by what?

    Huzzah! All back to normal! Apologies for the multiple consecutive posts. Appreciate all your help to allow me to resolve this. I shall be more careful when next transferring images from LR Mobile to Lightroom Classic. I think I need to complete the move to Classic as one task, followed...

    Cloud storage being used by what?

    So it does look like the above appears to be working. I'm taking it slow to ensure I do it correctly. My method so far: 1. Filter all photos in Lightroom CC by "Synced and Backed Up" - This shows all photos that have an original stored in the Adobe Cloud. (I think that's right!) 2. Find a...

    Cloud storage being used by what?

    Jim, Ok, i've installed Lightroom CC on my machine. What should I be looking for in there to identify non Smart Preview images? Would the photos I'm looking for appear under a filter of "Synced and Backed Up"?

    Cloud storage being used by what?

    I don't have Lightroom desktop installed. I checked the CC folder in Finder and it's empty apart from a .webloc file.

    Cloud storage being used by what?

    Jim, Many thanks for that. Makes perfect sense. Once you've managed to select all the synced collections it works perfectly. I have A LOT! The issue is, that the difference was only 11 images. I have removed those 11, but those 11 100% do not make up the space being used on the cloud...

    Cloud storage being used by what?

    The above sounds pretty much like what I'm experiencing. I have a lot of Collections ticked to sync and therefore a lot of photos in the "All Synced Photos" special collection. Is there a way to find any photos in the special collection that are also not in any other regular synced...

    Cloud storage being used by what?

    Hi, I have the basic 20Gb of storage and use LR Classic. I only use LR Mobile as a way to take a photo on my phone, import into an album in Mobile and then when I get back to my laptop with Classic on, I move the photos into a folder on my local system and add it to a Collection on there. I...

    Lightroom process to custom photo gallery setup (my workflow)

    Thanks Paul, Yes, it is a complex process but it works for what I'm aiming to achieve and there's reasons behind each part. It's something that's evolved over time and will continue to do so. I'm quite proud of the way I have managed to get it to work so I do hope others who read this...

    Lightroom process to custom photo gallery setup (my workflow)

    Hello, No question to ask, just wanted to post to show a part of a mini project i've been working on for quite some time now. I've had my personal website in the works for a very long time (10+ years) and I keep saying to myself it'll eventually go live but it never does because I keep...

    Lightroom has encountered problems reading this photo.

    Thanks Jim, I did spot all that but it appears that the connection between the version Mobile sees and the version in LR Classic has broken down somehow. No matter what I do to either version, the change is not synced. I can see LR Mobile adding the plus icon and I move away and then back and...

    Lightroom has encountered problems reading this photo.

    Hi, On my recent trip away I decided to test out LR Mobiles auto import features. I took photos on my phone. Periodically opened the LR Mobile app and let it import the days photos and sync to Adobe Cloud When at home, I let the cloud photos sync down to LR Classic. Now I am starting to go...

    Lightroom Web move Album out of Folder

    Perfect! That works! Looks like a strange edge case scenario to me. Thanks all!

    Is Lightroom Cloud Storage reliable?

    Oh absolutely. I think I need to get her an external disk to back them up onto. Is there a nice workflow that allows backups of the photos onto a local disk?
