    You'll learn how to use the Lightroom cloud ecosystem to organize, edit and share your photos. You'll also come to understand the thought processes used by professional photographers when they're editing their own photos, so you can transform your photos quickly and easily. And better still, the eBooks are updated for every release, so it's always up to date.
  • 25 June 2024 It's Lightroom update time again! See What’s New in Lightroom Classic 13.4, Mobile & Desktop (June 2024)? for the bug fixes and new lens profiles. Warning... this is a minor dot release and does NOT fix some of the bugs introduced in 13.3, so if you reverted to 13.2 due to bugs (e.g. sync issues), we'd suggest you stay there for now.

I know I can do this on my desktop but I’m away from base for quite a while and want to automatically get iPhone photos from apple photos into Lightroom.
In Lightroom mobile, tap on the three dots in the upper right corner, choose ‘App settings’ then ‘Import’ and enable ‘Auto Add’.
Note that the auto-add option only works for all new captures taken after the option is enabled. For existing images in Apple Photos you can either do a manual import using the Add Photos floating blue icon, OR use the "Device" option bottom left of the LrM screen. This "Device" option lets you view all the images in the Apple Photos camera roll and selectively edit them (which would automatically import them to the Adobe cloud).
