Hello I'm trying to move my workflow from LR classic to LR CC so I can get the full sync of keywords, tags etc across all my devices. I struggle to understand how Adobe wants me to import my photos : I can see the "add" functionality, but it doesn't do anything other than adding the photos to CC and uploading them to the cloud.
Before that step I do need to move the photos from my camera to a local disk, in that process I need to rename them, then I need to select the ones I want to keep. Do I need a separate program / plugin to do these operations ? Or is Adobe expecting me to do these operations in LR classic ? If I use classic I assume that all the changes I'll make on CC won't sync back to classic, and what's the point of having my photo catalog in 2 separate places ?
I'm trying hard but I honestly struggle to undertsand Adobe's vision of a photographer's workflow: is it documented somewhere ?
We're sorry about the trouble with Lightroom (Cloud). You can review your images while importing in the review window and select the ones you wish to import however, renaming them during import is not possible in Lightroom yet.
If you are using Lightroom Classic, you can sync the images with Lightroom by adding the images to a collection (note that while syncing images through Lightroom Classic, only the smart preview of the image would be synced and not the full resolution original). Any edits you do on the images in Lightroom or using Lightroom mobile, would automatically sync back to your Lightroom Classic catalog.
