This will have to be quick.....
To sync images from Lr Desktop to
Web and Mobile (Lightroom's Cloud) you have to turn on sync to Mobile in Lr Desktop.
You have to create a Collection and turn on sync for it.
Lr Desktop only syncs Smart Previews to
the Cloud whilst Lr Mobile syncs Originals (you can also upload them into Lr Web via browser).
The storage in not stated and often said to be unlimited although its not advised as a back up solution.
So it sounds like there are two methods of getting photos into the cloud:
• turn ON "Sync to Mobile" in Lightroom Desktop, or...
• click the "Make Public" button for any collection
Is this correct?
As an aside, Adobe's terminology strikes me as vague, because most people (IMO) have different definitions for "syncing to mobile" and "syncing to the cloud" (though technically I get that they're both "the cloud"). In my case, I want to sync to the cloud NOT so I (or anyone can view on a mobile device), but so my colleagues can view specific photos and collections on their desktop computers via a browser.
And I definitely do NOT want every photo I import into Lightroom to be synced to the cloud-that would be disastrous (and likely destroy Adobe's servers, LOL). I only want to syn *selected* photos and collections to the cloud.
RE: Cloud storage for Lightroom mobile/cloud sync: if this is truly unlimited, that's HUGE. I'd like to try to get clarification on this, because it's obviously critical when I could be using this for business/organizational purposes.
