When I bought CC I was assured by the sales agent that I could store my images locally (on a portable hard drive). But after beginning to use the program I cannot figure out how to do that. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

On Lightroom CC Desktop (OSX/Windows) you can select a location to store all originals (including external HD). If it cannot connect to the Cloud to upload, I assume it does first, but am unsure.On Lightroom CC Mobile (iOS/Android) you cannot select an external HD for storage. It imports into the App.
When I purchased LR CC I was assured by the agent that I would be able to store my images locally (on a portable hard drive). I have been unable to do that. I often travel to locations with no internet access and need to be able to store and edit my images.
Thanks for your help. It turned out that the reason I couldn't make LR CC save to local disc was that the portable hard drive was formatted as MS Windows instead of for an iMac (despite me taking the steps to do that before I used the drive). Ultimately, the correct solution for me is to not use LR CC but focus instead on LR CC Classic.
