So...this may be an open-and-shut case of "you did it wrong" but I'm going to ask before I start all over again.
I'm designing a photo book in InDesign. I'm doing it on multiple devices. Without looking into it as much as I probably should have, I uploaded a couple thousand photos to the "Photos" section of Lightoom on Creative Cloud, assuming I could get to them from InDesign. I can't, as far as I can tell. Apparently, I should have uploaded them to "Files" instead. (I think.)
Is there a way to move them to a Library in Creative Cloud? Everything I am finding online seems to suggest that I am going to be deleting them from the Photos section and re-uploading them to a Library. That would suck, so I am trying to avoid doing that. I essentially curated them from my archives into Photos in Lightroom CC...in the cloud, not on my desktop.
I also thought about re-downloading the originals and THEN moving then into a Library (probably syncing with the desktop app) but I haven't found a way to just download a whole collection.
Photo image files should be resized and output sharpened in the LR Export module for the placement size used inside InDesign, target printer and paper type, and its specified dpi. InDesign has no output sharpening capability. It can resize placed images, but does not apply output sharpening to the resized image. This can cause softening of the photo image.
If you have full-size images uploaded to the Cloud they should be resized and output sharpened using LR or PS for placement in your InDesign book. I do this real-time while working on the book since each photo may be placed at a different size. You can also simply place the full-size image files inside InDesign and the after the book is completed go back, resize the images at their placed size, and apply appropriate output sharpening using LR or PS. Whichever is easiest for you.
