If you are selecting photos already on the device or from camera roll you can tap to select and then create a named collection. It will appear in the collections panel of Lightroom desktop as a sub-set of “From Lightroom Mobile”
Right ... I'm talking about where Desktop Lightroom actually puts the
pictures on my computer.
They will be in a creative cloud data file.
I know what you mean (image below). They go in the Lightroom folder, under pictures, in a randomly named folder. You can always drag them from this folder into your catalog, but I don't know of any way to reset the location or name of the folder. It is a different random name for each mobile device you connect (in the example shown, I have two iPhones and an iPad).
No, they are not in a proprietary folder.
LR makes it look like a drive "John's iPad" but in fact there is an Explorer/Finder folder. Simply right click an image and choose Show in Explorer/Finder.
You can't change this folder. But in LR you can drag these photos into other folders.
I did, and they show up in a Lightroom catalogue in the finder ...?
