    What is the "Lightroom Pictures" collection on Lightroom Mobile?

    Ecclezz Level 1

      Whenever I sync a collection with my Android all the synced pictures seem to be automatically added to a collection/folder (?) that is named "Lightroom Pictures". Even after I stop syncing a collection all the pictures will still be visible in the "Lightroom Pictures" section. How can I stop this? Since the "Lightroom Pictures" is not a real collection (and also not visible in the desktop application but only on my adroid) I cannot delete it or do anything else with it. All the options I have are "add picture" and "start slide show".

          Hi Ecclez,

           

          Lightroom Photos is just a timeline-based view of all the photos in all Lightroom Collections segmented by year and that is why the synced images are added by to "Lightroom Photos" view. To stop this from happening, you should add images to a specific collections simply tap on the three dots next to that collection and select "Add Photos".And if you want to auto add images from camera roll to that specified collection select "Enable Auto Add".

          (Android) Collection options

           

          Refer Get started with Lightroom for mobile app on Android for more details.

           

          Regards,

            I am not sure whether that really helps. I always start creaing a new collection in the lightroom desktop app. Then I assign pictures to that collection. After that  I start synchronizing that collection by clicking on the respective icon next to the collection in the desktop application. What then happens is: All photos are visible under the collections name on my phone and in addition they appear in the "Lightroom Photos" section on my phone. Even after I stop synchronizing the collection via my desktop application all pictures still appear in the "Lightroom Photos" section. My phone is NOT set to "Enable Auto Add" and I do not have a problem with adding pictures that are on my phone to one of my collections.

              Lightroom mobile is just a view and should not be confused with Collections.

              Try adding an image on your Desktop in a collection that is also synced with mobile.

              You should find the image in the collection on your mobile once synced,and it will also show up in the Lr photos view.
