I'm having a heck of a time uploading files edited in Lightroom Mobil to Instagram. the lightroom folder that is in the instagram dropdown menu only has three files, no subfolder etc. I recognize those files but don't know how they got there. So searching around in that submenu in /other I see the creative cloud icon and select it, no files are available and no option to select some of the folders that I know are stored on CC.
So opening the CC app, I see that there are tabs for Files, libraries, LR Photos… and sure enough I have folders in LR Photos with the images I want.
Back under CC/files, I created a folder named ToInstagram as a test. Back in Instagram, selecting CC as the source the folder ToInstagram is available. The folder is empty but if I hit the plus button, I can add files but it doesn’t take me to the lightroom mobile folder, which I can not find on my phone (android).
But the files are already in CC!!!! How do I move or copy the pics from “LR Photos” to the “Files” section?
This is really aggravating. Its seem that every option I tray has a broken link somewhere
Mike, thanks for replying and I'm sorry to take this long to reply myself. I should have made it clear in the first place but what I was originally trying to do is make a multiple image Instagram post when the viewer swipes left to see the additional images. So yes, your workflow does work I'm on android so its a little different but. If I select multiple images in LR mobile and select share icon, Instagram does not come up as an option. instagram is only an option if I only select one image. that's why I was trying the other options.
Save to device was not working for some reason. I reinstalled LR today and Save to Device works now so I can just do multi image post in the Instagram app referring to the LR folder.
