Syncing Dropbox and LR Cloud

While LR cloud's interface is not directory based, is there some way to sync a Dropbox folder to a dedicated LR cloud album?  My wife doesn't have an adobe account and I would like to be able to combine our photos using LR cloud as a repository, but I need the ability to carve out the junk as new photos come in.  I was skeptical about the cloud version but am enjoying having access to everything from my iPad.

Being able to combine, control, and sync family members' photos from different devices within a cloud repository that links with a powerful editing app would combine the unified solution of classic with the mobile access of cloudy.  That would be a big missing piece that overcomes some reluctance to switch from classic to cloudy.

No, you cannot integrate Lr and Dropbox or other cloud services.

If you wife is using a smart phone, just install Lr and have if automatically upload.

Otherwise, create a few shared albulms for her that she can access over the web; I think she can access them with Lr app on her phone even with no account but not positive since I have not tried it.

She can then upload the images to a single shared album you call import here. Then you can manage them and move them to the correct albums as you deem appropriate.

Thanks, Tim. She doesn't have an Adobe account, so there is nowhere with sufficient room to automatically upload. But sharing an album with edit rights *might* be a workaround. I'll give it a shot and follow up.
