1. Yes if you import images from your camera card to Lightroom mobile then it would be sync to the desktop version of Lightroom.
2. No, the images from the collection you have synced from desktop version of Lightroom would just appear as a smart previews under Lightroom Mobile and would take some small space from your default storage on your mobile.
Thanks. So for my photos taken by my android camera, 100's of them...if I setup that collection to "import" them into Lightroom Mobile, does it just create a link to them in LR mobile like the desktop version? Or does it copy some version of those images into the main memory area.
As far as sync'd collections FROM my desktop TO the phone, it sure seems like it should be able to be set to use the SD card for this storage.
I must have missed something though. I have not installed the mobile version yet because I wanted to understand how much space it would take up.....
But I thought that I read that it now has an SD card "checkbox" now. What does that do or was the poster not correct?
The images that you have captured from your android camera can be directly sync to Lightroom desktop version using Lightroom mobile.
It is not going to sync the original file rather a smart preview.
Images from Lightroom desktop version to your Lightroom Mobile would take default storage space on your phone.

Thanks....Just trying to figure out the workflow for an image taken with a camera phone. I am looking through those links too.
So there really is no way to use LR mobile to take image taken by the camera on your phone (which these days might be a 16MB camera that produces 5,000kb files), sync it to your desktop, edit it with Lightroom desktop, and print a full rez print from it on your desktop? If it is just a smart preview, that is not going to cut it. Just trying to figure out what you are supposed to do if all you get is a smart preview. Sync the image, make adjustments, take your phone, connect it to your desktop, copy the full rez JPEG file to your desktop, then import that, and somehow marry that to the smart preview and then print???
I fully understand that desktop collections sent TO the phone are just smart previews. But I would have thought that although a smart preview might be used on the phone to make adjustments to photos taken on the phone, that eventually it would also sync the full rez. file. Or else I just can't see how that workflow helps....
