    how to move mobile downloads folder

    rarewolf Level 1

      I see that Lr CC (Mac) has recently allowed for choosing where to keep photos exported from Lr Mobile.  However, while I have used preferences to change that location, changing the location doesn't appear to move what already exists.  I cannot seem to find more information on it, so I'd appreciate some help ...

       

      Lr's library "Folders" browser is also not showing the designated folder so I also cannot try option clicking and choosing 'Set as Lr Mobile downloads location'(?)  Also if I am finally able to move what already has been downloaded, is there a way to organize the folders iaw my chosen preferences?

       

      TIA

          The new preference setting only works for new photos/videos.

           

          Just drag the existing mobile photos/videos from the old location and drop them where you now want them.

            Thanks John ... sounds easy enough.  Except the Lr library browser isn' showing the folder in which they are now, nor is it showing the preferred folder. I can see the existing mobile uploads in a "collection" but I'm not sure if it shows all possible image files (as if I created the collection and it may not be up to date), but I still don't have a folder to which to drag them, leastwise in Lr...did you mean drag'n'drop with Finder? I suppose I could also create the new folder with Lr and then redefine the location via option click(?)
