I have all my photos in Google Photos. I recently downloaded the Lightroom app to have more editing options. However, when I'm in Lightroom and want to add photos from Google Photos, Lightroom only shows me a small fraction of all my Google Photos, and they're pretty random at that. Why can't I view all my Google Photos from Lighthouse? Is there a way to do that? Or do I have to send photos from GPhotos straight to Lighthouse?

Your google photos are stored in the Google cloud. Lightroom is probably seeing the handful that have synced to your local drive. The images have to be on the local drive before you can upload them to the Lightroom cloud.

Right. That makes total sense. Thank you. I guess I'll have to share them from Google Photos to Lightroom, or load my photos to an external harddrive/memory stick, and try and import them from there.
