Lightroom Classic: Ability to sync Smart Collections with (Desktop / Mobile / lightroom.adobe.com)

Collection synching / Lightroom Mobile is a great addition to Lightroom 5.4. Please extend this functionality to Smart Collections as well.

I totally agree. What kind of lazy ass reason do they have for not making smart collections syncable?

Up! Adobe, this is the most requested feature and it’s not even « under consideration ».

I just thought:

Hey I can have a smart collection to view all the new photos from a photo shoot on a tablet as they come in (LR Classic gets live jpgs via WiFi ).

And now its a "no, its not going to work" :(

There is a workaround:

(not sure if it's been mentioned already, because I can't search this thread only)

Use Jeffrey Friedls "Smart-Collection-Sync"-Plugin and then sync the mirrored/synced collection to mobile.

Then you might run into the next bug of the sort order, but the workaround for that is here:

Or use the Any Source plugin.

Or just create a dumb collection with the same name as the Smart, then in the Smart select ALL, and drag and drop to the dumb. Do this as necessary (like when you want to show an image on your phone). Note: it will only copy over new images.

Hello LR team,

It would be good if smart collections could be synced to Lightroom too. Not just the conventional collections. And the same goes to collection sets... Enable to sync a whole set.

Thank you,

Vidu Gunaratna

Until Adobe supports syncing smart collections, you might be interested in Jeffrey Friedl's Lightroom Classic “Smart-Collection Sync” plugin.

I would really appreciate synchronizing smart collections. Lightroom has so much metadata and smart collections are such a benefit, it seems a waste not to leverage them this way. It's an obvious step forward in automating photo management, in my opinion.

I concur.  I appreciated the comment on Friedl's work around.  After getting it set up...it has been a good way to wait for Adobe to make improvements on syncing smart collections.

I would like to be able to choose to sync a smart collection with Lightroom Mobile in Lightroom Classic.
