Is there a way to remove the 'Lightroom Mobile' folder in my folder list in Lightroom Classic?

Is there a way to remove or move this folder?  It seems to be all my synced lightroom mobile / CC images, but it's also causes a ton of duplicates to show up when I do a search and also has all my iPhone photos (I think I have my lightroom mobile set to auto-import).  Does it need to be here or can I move it or somehow disconnect it from being in my "active" folder list? 



I want to keep using synced images, but don't really like having the synced photos (which are already in collections in LR already) here again.

I'm not sure how you'd expect it to work or be able to access the images if it wasn't in your active folder list, but you should be able to change that location, if you'd like.

Go to Edit --> Preferences --> Lightroom Sync (might say Lightroom Mobile, depending on your Lr version) tab and look in the Location section for the current path and a Change button.

Yeah, you're definitely causing your own problems with that workflow.  Why aren't you simply sending from Lr Mobile to the native IG app?

Mostly because you can't (AFAIK) add a watermark on export from LRM.  Course there's tons of discussion on watermarking, but that's the reason.  Unless you know of a way to do that, because that would eliminate a TON of issues.

Brilliant!  Glad I could help.  And don't feel bad...the watermarking feature has only been in Lr Mobile for a few months.
