    If photos and catalogues are moved within Lightroom Classic, is synchronisation automatic.

    Thanks to Victoria and Paul awhile back, I got my Lightroom Classic, Lightroom CC on laptop, Web Lightroom, Mobile Lightroom on ipads and mobiles to synchronise after everything went pear shaped and synchronising had stalled completely after panic attacks on my old 2012 Macbook pro. It took...

    Traveling drive for originals

    I use Lightroom (the Cloud version not Classic). I want to change the drive that LR saves the originals to from the static drive attached to my Mac to a traveling WD 5TB drive. I don’t want to take the existing originals with me, but merely save the new originals of photos which I take whilst...

    Synching metadata between LrC and Lr (and vice versa)

    I'm currently in the midst of a fairly massive project to digitize all of my family's slides and negatives going all the way back to 1940--perhaps 10,000 images in all. My work flow is to import the new hi-res scans into Lr, then let them sync down to LrC where I can use the date plugin to...

    LrC and LR synching woes

    Great original content, great forum, thank you, Victoria. I feel I have wasted too much time trying to find answers on my own or going to the semi-official Adobe support forum. I see that there is an LrC and an LR subforums. There should be one for "Trying to live in LrC and LR at once and...

    How do I delete synced Cloud data on one machine, without removing from LR Cloud?

    My Mac's disk is nearly full because I set up Lightroom Classic to sync the originals from Lightroom Cloud storage, and since then, hundreds of gigabytes of RAW images have been synced to Lightroom Cloud from an iPad. Lightroom Classic on a different machine (PC) is the single source of truth...

    Revisiting using LrC and Lightroom together

    I posted several questions back in Oct/Nov about how to use LrC and Lightroom together. The history is that I was a LrC user for many years, but a couple years ago I started using Lightroom. I did not migrate my LrC catalog to Lr, so I've had two separate catalogs since then. I would like to...

    Is it now possible to store Lightroom images on a local drive?

    I was just reviewing this page of Adobe's website, in preparation for migrating my LrC catalog to Lightroom. I came across this passage in the "Local Storage Preferences" section: Is this new? I was under the impression that there was no way to store full-resolution copies of images imported...

    Sync Where is "Delete All Synced Data" documented for Lightroom Classic

    I am trying to find documentation about "Delete All Synced Data" in Lightroom Classic on Mac, to understand its behaviour, and any options it may have. I have searched for it in Feb 2022 edition of "Adobe Lightroom Classic Missing FAQ" and the Adobe online docs, and cannot find any write-up of...

    "Deleted" photos still on iPhone?

    I recently got an iPhone 13 and am determined to use it to shoot more. In the downtime in hotel rooms, I have sync working form iPhone to Classic on my notebook. I rearranged the sync'd images in CC, renamed folders and moved them out of the sync folder chain. I assume they are safe form Sync...

    Re-Sync LR Classic Collections

    I recently switched from LR CC to LR Classic and synched all the files to LR Classic. I was able to break the sync between LR Classic and LR Cloud and sync from LR Classic to the Cloud. I deleted all files on LR CC, but found several files which did not get synced so I needed to restore. Now my...

    Sync a folder with a collection of that folder

    I would like to have a collection of images (from one folder) that is synchronized with it's parent folder so, if I add or delete an image in the parent folder the collection reflects the changes. Any thoughts how to do this?

    Library module Does Lightroom classic continue to sync when I log out?

    I am making a lot of changes in my synced collections on LRC and adding new ones. Will the collections continue to sync when I log out of LRC or should I leave it running all night?

    Sync Speed

    After braking Cloudy desktop (I broke sync) and starting over and being more patient. :) I have a question, how fast are others seeing the sync work? I have a gigabit connection, a fast desktop and Cloudy is only using a couple percent of the CPU/GPIU, memory is only at 40% and disk is at 2%...

    Confusion around Lightroom Sync

    Hello, I set up the sync option in Lr mobile on my iPhone to add photos from my photo roll to Lr mobile and to sync. As I understand it, this has added them to an "All Synced Photographs" catalog in LrC and they have been backed up to a folder on my computer hard drive. This is fine (kind of)...

    Classic Sync Issues (no pun intended)

    I need some help. I got 6k images in cloud sync, but no sync'd collections on either laptop. I think I imported photos into my ipad via sd card reader and that is what is syncing.

    (UN)syncing or (RE)syncing to a new location

    Hi, I recently uploaded all my photos to the cloud via CC. I subsequently installed the LRC on my desktop and began to sync. I got few thousand pics in and decided I wanted them to sync to a portable hard drive instead. How can I restart this process? I see a butto that says delete all syncd...

    Sync to Lightroom option missing from Lightroom Classic

    I've been using Lightroom Classic for years and have created many collections that I've synced to the cloud. As recently as a few hours ago, I was able to create a new collection and check the Sync with Lightroom option. All of the photos synced fine. I closed Lightroom and came back to it a few...

    Having sync issues between Lr (Cloud based) and LrC (Classic)

    I used to be able to create albums in the cloud based version of Lightroom (Lr), and since my Lightroom Classic is connected to the cloud, I would see a new collection in LrC that would match the newly created album in Lr. Now, this doesn't happen anymore. I only noticed yesterday, but it might...

    Syncing with LR Classic created empty folders but stored images elsewhere

    I recently got a new Desktop PC and so I transferred my Catalog from my laptop (which up until now had been my primary Lightroom device). This meant that, along with my main images, it also transferred all the synced images on the laptop. I wanted my new Desktop to be the device that synced via...
