I'm a (former?) Apple Aperture user who just bought Lightroom (v6 - not the CC version) a week ago after never using it before - AND my son just gave me his old cell phone (never had a cell phone either) to use like a mini iPad in WiFi zones. I thought one of the uses for the phone could be to hold pictures, so I've started syncing some photos from LR to the phone, and I've come across 2 things I'm not sure about:
1) I've moved over about 500 photos (just moving whole folders at a time) - but I really only want to keep about 100 of them on the phone. If I go through and delete the ones I don't want on the phone (but still want to keep on the computer), will that work - or the next time I sync the phone will it either put the photos back on the phone again, or remove them from the computer because now it thinks I want them deleted?
2) When I look at the LR app on the phone it says that I have 25 days remaining in my trial. What would that trial be? I haven't signed up for anything, and I'm not using the CC version - so I thought the photos were syncing to the phone because I get 2 GB's of cloud storage for free as part of owning the application. Is that not the case?
I just want to be sure that (assuming I can get the photos how I want them on the phone via #1 above), that 25 days from now all the phots are just going to disappear off the phone - especially since I'm not planning on subscribing to CC anytime soon.
Thanks in advance for any help with the above questions.....
The trial notifications referring to the trial of Lightroom Mobile. Lightroom Mobile is an application that you can install on your Apple or android mobile device and then can look at images that you have chosen to share by creating collections. But after the trial finishes you will longer have access to Lightroom Mobile because it is for creative subscribers only.
Thanks Jim. Glad I asked before I wasted a bunch of time moving stuff that will disappear in 3 weeks!!
