I understand where you are coming from, but physical file naming has been part of photography culture for a long time. I like when the name flashes on the screen or is exported in the folder that I can instantly know the data and camera because that is how I chose to do things. I think you are...
I just want to make sure I am not missing something. After 15 years of meticulously naming photo images, if I ingest with Cloudy there is no way to rename them from what the Camera picks?
In reality, I might not care that much, but still curious.
Any thoughts on this? Right now my Cloudy files are in folders like this:
I don't think that folder naming was my choice.
My Classic ingested are in:
Which is how I chose to do it over many years.
So I don't know if it is a better...
The filter does not do what i expected. I found a set of photos that I had ingested in Lightroom Cloudy. If i click on an individual photo and click the "i" icon, it says "Local: Original File Cloud: Original Backed up ". When I filter on "Original Stored Locally" nothing is returned. I guess...
Great answers, I learned a lot in just this thread!
I had never used the Square Grid, i use the one to the left which i guess is called the Photo Grid. Very helpful to have those icons.
I am using both Lightroom Classic and Lightroom (Cloudy) on my laptop, but I am cleaning up to no longer use...
OK, one more question. On LR Cloudy on my laptop, how can i tell which albums are syncing "down" from Classic vs. which ones I might have added from the laptop? If I imported from a camera (card reader), where locally would LR Cloudy put the NEF?
Great, I think it is making sense now.
So if i Delete from my laptop or iPad what were once the originals, do the NEFs from Classic get deleted? (I think you are saying NO in step 4.1 in the original post, but i just want to be sure!
So your Classic imported and your Cloudy imported are interspersed in the same set of folders (on your classic machine)?
Thanks for the further explanations. I am not sure why I didn't think the NEFs would transfer over to classic, I thought it was only SmartPreviews or I was just confused...
This is a really good explanation and is what I currently do.
I sometimes still do a LR Classic catalog and merge it manually to my Master.
Your step 3 makes me uneasy, It does sync them back but to a different folder right? And then I am left with an uneasy feeling of which set is the "real"...
I am trying to sort out an iPad workflow too and ran into the same problems as above. I was using a Temp laptop from work in this case and hit the 20 GB Limit. I mistakenly unsynced a lot of Classic collections thinking it would free up cloud space, that space doesn't count against quota. (just...
I know no one from Adobe is here, but how about this for a feature request:
If you are in an Album and you hit the camera icon and take a picture, that picture should get automatically added to the album you are in. So it is getting Organized *AS YOU GO*
Any downside to that?
