Try as I might I can not find a tutorial that will explain how to get selected photos from my icloud account into lightroom classic.  I recently went to africa and took photos with both my Nikon camera and used my Iphone 11 pro max, for local shots.  The Iphone 11 pro mac, takes excellent photos and the editing program is quite good.  I can see  my icloud photos under my Icloud photo icon on my mac computer but  I can't figure out how to import selected photos from Icloud into lightroom.  I don't want to down load several hundred  unrelated photos just the african ones.  I hope to put some of these photos onto my adobe porfolio web site.  Surely some one has made a youtube tutorial giving a step by step way to do this.  Believe me I've looked but haven't used the correct request language to find it.  I have seen some that say you can import all your icloud photos originals.  By originals does that mean my icloud editing will not be imorted? I am kind of a visual person and need to hear and then see what to do. Thanks for any help.

Hi there,

 

In general, there is no integration between iCloud and Lightroom as of now and there are a couple reasons why it's not posible yet.

 

iCloud is the cloud option from Apple, Lightroom Classic needs the images to be locally available.Also, those images are all write protected within a folder on your Mac and cannot be read by other apps unless you export them locally on your computer from iCloud.

 

To Import photos into Lightroom, they cannot be in "the cloud". They must exist on a local disk (internal or external), camera card, USB thumb drive, or network drive.

Come on. LR never seems to play fair with the Finder. I totally understand why you need the photos stored locally once they are imported into LR, but why can't you import from icloud? Like other users in this forum, I use apple gear, have multiple computers and wind up with image files taken when away in icloud. The lack of import from the cloud function is ridiculous. So now I have to make a local copy of images to import them, and since I have LR make a new copies of the photos on import, I have to go and delete after import or else I wind up with duplicate photos all over the place.
