where are hidden the photos taken with LR camera ? when i connect my pc to my iphone, i see only the standard DCIM folder.
is there an application to access these or just LR mobile ?
If LR mobile, how can i get dng files and store them in a "photo2019" folder on my pc ?
I am a dinosaur and don't like hidden things inside LR. i want physically my dng on my pc in a folder i select.

I made a mistake adding iphone camera roll (2500 jpg) to LR on my iphone (300dng taken with LR camear) and started sync in LR classic.
I didn't know we could specify dated folder in LR classic parameters.
all camera roll and jpg/heic have been sync on my lr classic in a messy folder i have found in Pictures\mobile.lrdata of my pc
i see the 2800 images in a "sync" folder of lr classic.
i have downloaded all camera roll via usb and deleted all on my iphone but they are still in the strip of LR camera roll !

I could filter images by "dng type" and create an album with these DNG that i see in lr lcassic and lr mobile.
how can i copy them in a known folder of my pc ?
goal is to have my 300 dng available, not mixed.

You cannot access the photos taken with the Lr camera from outside the Lightroom system. After you take a picture with the Lr camera it will sync to the cloud, and if you have your Classic catalog sync-enabled it will also download into the catalog and will be stored on a hard drive like any other Classic image files. Where they are stored is controlled via the Classic Preferences>Lightroom Sync tab.

Those 300 images therefore should already be in your Classic catalog, which you should be able to find by filtering in Classic and move them to a different folder using drag and drop within Classic.

I suggest you have a read of the "Cloud Sync" section of your Classic Missing FAQ book, which explains how to set things up.
