ok that's not quite what I'm looking for. The tutorial you mention requires the installation of the hazel management software. I call a proper solution if it works by using lightroom and macOS utilities only.

No need for Hazel. You can do the same with Automator

I don't understand your meanings. You do speak about the MAC PHOTO.app? if it's correct, that app is creating a DataBase using picture files being under the image folder. If you send images in one of the folders being into the main folder called "images", you will get them inside the image DB after having made a sync of your DB.

Is that what you are looking for?
