Hi everyone,

 

I'm fairly new to the game, so forgive me if this a basic question, but I'm not being able to sync any Smart Collections in Ligtroom Classic.

 

I've already created the collection, I have the sync turned ON, but I don't see the option to sync any Smart Collections. I've seen a bunch of videos on how to do this, but I can't find those settings on my software. Any suggestions?

 

I'm using Lightroom Classic v11 on Windows.

Hi,

Smart collections cannot be synchronized, unfortunately. Only normal collections (where you add pictures manually).

Hope that helps,

Michael

You could however look at Jeffrey Friedl's "Smart Collection Sync" plug-in: http://regex.info/blog/lightroom-goodies/smart-collection-sync

 

In his own words, it's a bit kludgy but it does work.

The Any Source plugin also provides syncing of smart collections.
