Lightrom Mobile - Syncing to Desktop

  • Updated 3 years ago
I've just installed Lightroom C 2015 and have been setting up the mobile apps.

I can sync photos from the desktop to my Nexus 5 and Nexus 9 without a problem and I can then apply edits and they sync back fine too.

The problem arises when I have photos on the phone or tablet that I then add to a collection, whether it's a new collection created on the device or an existing collection from the desktop. These photos are not syncing back to the desktop app at all.

I have checked the website at and the photos from the mobile device show up there fine, so the issue doesn't seem to be on the mobile side. The desktop app seems unwilling to download any new photos (although it does download edits).

It knows they are there - I've cleared them out and started again with 2 test images and it just sits there saying 'Syncing 2 photos' but nothing happens.

I was hoping this would enable me to massively simplify my workflow for any photos that I've got on a device but it appears not. Is this a bug?

What version of Lightroom CC are you currently running? Can you launch Lightroom and go to the Help menu and click on System Info and respond with the full information shown in that dialog?
