Not sure what you mean by Upload. In LR you Import images into the Catalog file. When doing that you can copy them from the camera and or memory card to a folder on your computers hard drive, yes even the One Drive folder.
Nothing is Automatic unless you take the images on the phone using the LR mobile app and it has been my experience it doesn't work every time. But then I don't use my phone for many images and rarely use LR mobile to take the images I do use my phone for.
From the camera you must Open LR then click the Import button.
You review images in the Library module and Delete from the Library module.
You can put images into a collection during the import process, Not recommended IMHO, or afterwords.
Thank you for the response.
By "upload" I guess I meant, from a LR perspective. I comment is more scenario-focused (I want an image uploaded to the web service) than app-focused
That's a bit of a drag about the automatic upload and the need to use the LR Mobile app. Right now (sans Lightroom) I just take an photo from the regular camera app and it is automatically uploaded to OneDrive.
I may be missing your point but the Library module doesn't quite address my scenario. If I just delete the images I don't want, the ones that I do want to retain just grow over time. I want to effectively prune the list to zero every time I review - images are either deleted or moved / filtered out. In short, when I review I want end up with a view that has no images in it, till the next batch I import. I am thinking this may be possible through some form of tagging where I either delete them or tag them - and the "To be reviewed" collection only shows images that have not been tagged. Something like that...
LR/mobile has the option to automatically import any image you shoot with the built-in camera app. You do need to open LR when connected to wifi to make it sync to the Adobe CC cloud though (after which it will sync to your desktop). You can make it do this on a cellular connection but it is not the default to save you bandwidth. The LR camera app allows you to shoot raw on many recent phones which is absolutely amazing in how much better quality you can get than jpegs from the built-in camera app.
Cool! Yes, just ran through that and it all worked great. Took an image using the regular camera and it showed up on the web and, soon after, on the desktop version of LR, all without going anywhere near LR Mobile. Great stuff and that's a key part of my scenario covered. Thank you!
The RAW thing was news to me too - will check that out.
Regarding the "To be reviewed" workflow, what I think I will settle on is this...
. Have a smart collection looking for images that do NOT have the keyword "Reviewed".
. When I want to review recent images I either delete or associated that keyword with them, in which case they disappear from the smart collection
That would seem to work but this while idea of reviewing recently taken images seem such a common scenario that I am still wondering of Lightroom has some feature or concepts that specifically focus on this scenario.
There are many ways in which to do the "reviewing" thing. Most people will use pick flags and filters for this. Julianne Kost from Adobe has some awesome free videos that detail a lot of this. There is one on selecting and picking images here: Lightroom 5: Select, Rate and Prioritize Your Images - YouTube
Thank you, Jao. That is very helpful.
