I use Lightroom Classic and Photoshop in tandem. 90% Lightroom but the real intricate stuff in Photoshop. I have no interest in any otheother adobe program. I woulduse Cloud Storage if it could be addressed via the directory structure on Lightroom. That does not not appear to be the case so I will be using a 3rd party Cloud storage simply because you make it too hard. Not everybody wants to use apps on their mobile devices to share photos.. I am currently using a raid device but that does not give me complete security. It does allow me to address it from my Lightroom directories.

What do you mean by "addressed via the directory structure on Lightroom"?

I'm guessing Tony meant he'd like to see folders in the CreativeCloud storage shown as folders in the LR Classic Folders Panel (instead of using Synced Collections), so that shifting full image files (instead of - or in addition to - Smart Previews) to/from the cloud can be done with intuitive drag 'n' drop...

Like I said, that is not going to happen. That is why Adobe made Lightroom (cloud).

You could store the images in your 'Creative Cloud Files' folder. That is a part of the Adobe Creative Cloud that acts just like Dropbox: a local folder that is constantly synced with the cloud. Not sure if that is what you want however. If you only want cloud storage, and no local storage, then forget it. That is exactly why Adobe created Lightroom desktop, so that is not going to happen for Lightroom Classic.

Tony,  I work very similarly to you.  I use Dropbox primarily.  Works like a charm and much simpler, more reliable, and more versatile for the typical (is there such a thing?) photographer's workflow than Adobe's cloud.  I use Adobe's cloud for syncing Lightroom Camera photos from my phone or iPad.  Love it for that but for general image syncing needs... no way.
