Hi, I've recently upgraded to LrC. Importing all originals from Lr to LrC was very painful but after a full week, I now have a working LrC library. I've stopped syncing and after backing up everything once again for safety, I've completely and permanently deleted the Lr cloud library.


So I'm now left with LrC alone and I've synced many pictures again but this time, only smart previews are uploaded to the cloud.


However, I also make pictures with my smartphone. Thanks to cloud sync, my DNG files are properly synced and go to a particular folder on my computer's drive. These are full size DNGs and not only smart previews, which is nice. But what's next ?


I want these new smartphone pictures in my library just as other pictures, and if they get synced, I want that ony smart previews are sent to the cloud so it doesn't eat my 100GB cloud storage. How can I do ? Sorry if this is a dumb question but there is someting I don't get.
