I recent ipgraded my phone to the iPhone Xs from the 7 plus and I’ve noticed that for some reason all photos taken recently have started to be auto imported into Lightroom CC. I have veri that “Auto Import“ for photos and videos is turned off completely, yet it continues to happen.
Not a bug! I figured it out. I also have Lightroom CC for Mobile on an iPad and for some reason auto import was turned on there (although I don’t know WHY it was turned on...unless it is a default setting) so when iCloud Photos synced, Lightroom imported them via my iPad.
The first (and original) setting is at the collection/album level in the main catalog view. Clicking the three dots next to an album/collection to open properties lets you toggle auto-add for that album/collection.
There’s a global setting (click the gear icon in the main view to open settings, and tap on “Import.”) Here you’ll find another setting to toggle auto-add of photos and/or videos.
If this setting is on, and no collections/albums have auto import enabled, the photos or videos will get imported into “All Photos” without being a part of an actual collection/album (which I think is really confusing).
