- Checked out my acct in Preferences, which showed something about syncing being setup using a different, older catalog, though I have no recollection of doing this, haven't used that catalog in forever, and didn't even have a smartphone until two weeks ago. I switched it to my current catalog. (It said something about only one catalog can sync at time, which didn't strike me as a problem, since I was switching it to the catalog I wanted to upload photos to from my phone. I have zero intention of ever working on my DSLR photos from my desktop on my phone. I'm solely looking for a simple way to get my iPhone shots into my desktop LR.)
- All of the images that I took today are gone. I don't understand why syncing from my desktop would reach into my phone's memory and delete the images that I thought were on my phone
- That's where you created a new catalog that replaces the current catalog and its content saved on Lightroom mobile.
But, this never deletes or access your images stored on Physical Phone memory even if you shoot them using Lightroom's in app Camera.
- You could look for all your synced collection on your iPhone's Photos gallery as it creats a collection set called "From Lr Mobile" and one collection inside it called "iPhone Photos". You may refer Common questions about Lightroom for mobile and Lightroom for Apple TV for more info.
I have a similar question. Have LR mobile and 65 edited photos on an iPad. When trying to sync to LR desktop, I am informed that LR is sync'd to a different library (that I've not seen before) and wants to delete my mobile photos. What?
How can I sync my LR mobile photos to my current library WITHOUT first deleting them (which kinda makes the whole point useless, actually)?
Thanks Akash. Only trouble is that I don't have a "From LR mobile" gallery in my Photos gallery. And in "all photos" album none of the images I took with LR before syncing are present. Any other ideas?
Yeah, I have the "from LR mobile" folder on my desktop—and it's completely empty. Currently I have one single photo in my LR app on my phone, which I took after the 100+ photos disappeared. It doesn't appear on my desktop.
But at this point, I just want my 100+ photos back!
No help for me on this? Why did LR delete my photos? Can I get them back?
Do you see a folder named "Mobile downloads" in the location Pictures\Lightroom\ ?
Is so, open it and see if it does have some folders containing a cache of your synced images.
No folders there. There's an lrdata file there named mobile downloads, but no folder and no files.
