Adobe Lightroom on macOS : Manage cloud storage & Selective Sync

I'm using Lightroom and am getting a message that my cloud storage is nearly full. I would like to address this by only having some of my library included in the cloud storage and the rest on my hard drive. I can't find anyway to access/manage the cloud photos though. I've downloaded Creative Cloud and it shows no libraries. I've tried to follow the instructions about deleting on this discussion board but none of them seem to align with my needs/functionality.

 

I don't mind having some of my files stored on the cloud, but no need to have my entire library up there.

Hi there,

 

Thanks for reaching out. We are here to help. I'd love to help you figure this out.

Adobe Lightroom is a cloud-based application and does not have a selective upload option, as it syncs everything as original & keeps your images on the cloud as a full size back up.

 

You can find my recommendation to have the ability to selectively sync images to the cloud on this community thread: https://community.adobe.com/t5/lightroom-ecosystem-cloud-based-discussions/about-cloud-storage-image...

 

We hope this helps,
Thanks!

Thank you Sameer,

I've setup Lightroom Classic on my computer and now would like to have it utilize the lightroom catalog. All my photos are already on my computer, but I do not see the Lightroom catalog. Is there a way to convert catalogs so I don't lose the Lightroom edits that have been made without having to download the whole photo set again?
