I downloaded Lightroom CC recently and imported about 1000 travel photos, but I decided I much preferred the more familar options of Lightroom Classic CC.  I have an external HD that I use for all my Lightroom Classic photos.  How do I safely move my recently imported travel photos in Lightroom CC (I assume in the cloud) to my external HD so I can edit in Lightroom Classic CC?

I would prefer to keep all the edits and flags I already created in Lightroom CC.

I'm new to "Creative Cloud" and I'm not opposed to syncing and upgrading in the future. I just want all my photos in one place as my workflow requires that I can easily flag pictures and then view the selected flagged pictures afterward. I understand this is not possible in Lightroom CC, which is a shame. Thanks!

Hi ryans98103, I would recommend you to let those images sync to Lightroom Classic CC, enable the sync in Classic CC and it will download images from the cloud into your desktop Lightroom Classic CC catalog. You may refer How to sync Lightroom Classic CC desktop with Lightroom CC You may refer this similar discussion Using Lightroom CC with Lightroom Classic Hope that helps.Thanks,Akash

Hi, I had exact the same question; but after that can I delete the photos from Lightroom (cloud) or are these deleted too in Lightroom Classic after the next sync? It comes really handy to use Lightroom (the new one) on my laptop on vacation but i generally keep my library on Lightroom Classic.
