Delating pictures from synched collection between LR CC and LR Classic both ways

  • Updated 2 months ago
I've a good workflow between CC and Classic Lightroom and I've small problem with my collections synchronized between them. If I erase a picture in Lr CC in an album, the picture will be remove from both Lr CC album and Lr CC "all pictures" and on my sync collection in Lr Classic. But the opposite doesn't work : If I remove the picture from Lr classic, the picture will be removed from the Lr Classic sync collection and in the Lr CC collection but not in the Lr CC "All pictures" file. And I also presume that the file is still on my cloud which is a problem for me dealing all my data.

Thanks a lot for all your great work

Remove the picture from 'All Synced Photographs' in Lightroom Classic.

Thanks for your quick answer but I presume that's what i did. I'm using a french version, so the name is "Depuis Lightroom CC" (stands for "from Lightroom CC") in the Collections with all my synched collections between Classic and CC. And it's working properly, it's deleting the picture in my Lr Classic collection and in my synched album in Lr CC but not in Lr CC "All pictures".

No, that is not the same collection. There is a 'All Synced Photographs' collection at the top of the left panel.

Thanks a lot,
Do you see a reason why it's working this way and not through collections directly? It would be easier to work on collections, especially if you deal with a lot of them (looking for one or two amongst all synced pictures could be a complete waste of time)?

It makes sense. Your ‘From Lightroom CC’ collection set contains synced albums. What is an album in Lightroom CC is a collection in Lightroom Classic. Images do not have to be in an album in Lightroom CC, however. That means they also do not have to be in a synced collection. ‘All Synched Photographs’ is the Lightroom Classic equivalent of ‘All Photos’ in Lightroom CC. That is why you need to delete photos from there.

Thanks again for your time and precious answers.

I'm trying to improve my workflow between CLassic and CC both ways for many different configurations (tethered shoot, on set or on travel shoot, personal and professional works). I'm still trying to figure out what is the best place for Lr CC in my process (with Lr Classic/PS and my cloudy and web portfolio).

It's been a great pleasure to read you
