When dng files I sync to Lightroom Mobile from Classic and edit on my iPad, they sync back to a single designated Mac folder. Is there a streamlined way to get them back into the same folder as the original source file, either replacing the original file or not?

There's possibly some information missing from your workflow here....if you sync from Classic to the cloud, then edit on a device such as an iPad, only the changes sync back to Classic and are applied to the original file. There is no additional file created, unless you are doing something else on the iPad that you haven't mentioned?

My bad. Senioritis strikes even the most vigilant. I was looking at files *generated* on the iPad and the need to designate a destination folder. I can redistribute them into desired final homes in Classic at that point. Thanks for getting back to me so quickly.

You can change the location of the images that are downloaded into Classic, see the Classic Preferences>Lightroom Sync tab. Not only can you set your preferred location, but you can also set one of the standard Classic date-based folder structures for those downloaded files.

OK, I've got the location part - I have a "From Lightroom Mobile" folder. How would I then designate date-based folders within? This sounds like the "By Date" option for imports, but how would I apply that for uploads?

I'm ok with me being ignorant, but when I cross-over into stupid it's time to put the mouse down and go read a book. Thanks, Jim for chiming in.
