I am an old, old Lightroom (from the very beginning) user . I use a Windows based desktop and laptop and an Android phone.  All of these are up to date as are my Adobe aps.  I would like to use Lightroom Cloud to store photos when I am on location and then move the photos to my desktop when I arrive home.  At that point I would like to clear my Cloud storage in order to save Cloud space.  Could you please give me an idea about how to do this?  A workflow?

4) Delete the photos in [All Synced Photographs].  (The downloaded files will remain i

And you can find a similar discussion here- where @JohanElzenga suggests adding the photos back to the Adobe Cloud (as Proxy files that don't use any Cloud space!)
