Hello all. Hope one of you guys can shed some light onto this issue:

I haven't been synching images from Lightroom Classic to Lightroom recently and needed to do so an hour ago. So I added anew image to a collection that apparently is set to sync with Lightroom. I opened the cloud LR and discovered the new image just added did not sync. So back again to Lightroom Classic, went to the collection and the doble sided sen arrow icon is on. I toggled it off than on again and this message appears:

Sync "collection" later

(Synching is currently off)

What could be the possible causes? This is driving me crazy...

Cheers

Hi hanil7up,

As you've mentioned that you switched the sync in Lightroom Classic on and off and getting a message that says "syncing is currently off".

Please navigate to the Lightroom Preferences> Lightroom Sync section and check if you're getting any error message there.

Also, if there are no pending sync(none of the images are in the process of syncing) then sign out of Lightroom Classic and Lightroom and sign back in.

Let us know how it goes,

Thanks,

Akash

Thanks Akash

There are three files "pending sync" according to theLightroom Sync tab. Can I delete them? How would I do so?

Also, there are 385 images downloading, from different iPhones I had!

Please delete the 3 pending sync images (if you can re-edit them by importing them again in Lightroom) and see if the sync process starts to work again.

I managed to delete all the synched images in the cloud Lightroom

Now I would like to sync again some collection, but the small window where the doble sync arrow used to be disappeared...

Please set a collection to sync to the cloud again and let us know if that helps.

Hey,

I have the same problem and it didn't fix it for me.
Don't know what to do. Turned it off and on and nothing does the trick. Log out and in. Nothing.

Found a way.
For some reason I had to change it on the little cloud within Lightroom CC. And I always went for the 'Preferences'. Had to hover over the top part so develop menu etc shows. And then went all the way to the right to change it.
