Hey guys!! Sooo, I wasn't able to import my photos into the Lightroom app, for MONTHS. I had to delete the app, lost all my photos / custom presets. That seemed to solve the problem and I could finally use the app like before. However, after 2 days, the problem is BACK. I can't upload photos, so no edits possible. What can I do other than forever uninstalling and reinstalling? Logging out or rebooting doesn't change a thing either.
What exact version of Lightroom? What operating system are you using? Have you considered deleting the preferences file to see if that resolves the issue? The photos should still be on your hard drive if you are using Lightroom Classic.
Are you using the app as a free app, or are you using a paid subscription? With a paid subscription, all your synced photos should be available in the cloud, and you could download them back to your device after signing in with the same Adobe ID. If using the free version, your photos are not backed up and you're on your own.
As far as not being able to upload photos into Lightroom, can you provide a little more detail about your workflow, exactly what steps you are taking, and exactly what results you are getting? Any error messages, screen shots, and other detail will be immensely valuable in helping to sort this out.
& as for more details about the problem, there really isn't anything to add... when I try uploading photos, NOTHING happens. No error message, nothing. & if I wait and wait they never appear in the app 🙈 I've tried uploading with the usual little "+" or even if I'm in my camera roll and try sharing the photo directly to the Lightroom app, same thing. Nothing happens.
