I subscribe to the cloud-based LR and have also started to use the LR app on my iPhone to take and upload photographs. On the app (but not on the Desktop version) there is a folder called Lr Camera Photos which holds a copy of all the photos taken with the phone camera. These photos are synced to the cloud and so are also under All Photos on both desktop and mobile app. I thought that I would delete the photos from the Lr Camera Photos but it seems that if I try to do this they are deleted everywhere. Is this correct? And if this is just another automatic folder (like Recently Added), is there o way of showing the same folder on the Desktop?
Thank you, Roland

Yes, that's correct. You can't "remove" a photo from such an automatic album, you can only delete it, which means delete from the cloud.

No, that special album doesn't figure in the desktop app, though using the faceted search (selecting the camera facet) is fairly easy to do. I really do wish, though, that smart albums could be introduced.
