Correct. The original folders with photos are obsolete as soon as they have been imported in Lightroom. Local copies made by Lightroom should (eventually) be deleted when the cloud copy is deleted, because Lightroom considers the cloud copy to be the original.

Where are they on your computer? If these are images you imported from your hard disk into Lightroom, then the answer is negative. Lightroom does not know the images are still there and does not manage them. If these are local copies that Lightroom saved on your disk, then theh will automatically be deleted (but that may take a little time).

Thank you! I think I understand. So, first, I do not need to keep my photos in folders created by me in my HD, just to import them to LR CC directly from the downloaded pictures creetd by my camera, which will send the pictures to a LR CC folder created by the programme. Second, when I delete a photo from LR CC, the photo will stay in that folder (created by LR CC in my HD) for 60 days, then, the photo will be gone. Am I correct, JohanElzenga, please?

Thanks. And am I right that what I delete stays 60 days available and then it is gone for ever?

I believe a deleted photo stays in the cloud for 60 days. I do not know if the same period applies to local copies.
