Hi there,
I've been using Lightroom CC for couple days and already found a bug.

When Auto-Import is turned on, photos taken in burst mode does not upload correctly to Lightroom - only the main photo is being uploaded ! 
Google Photos has no problem with that - simply uploads EVERY photo taken in burst mode.


iOS 12.1.2.
Lightroom CC Mobile: newest 4.1.1

Thanks for the comments Adam. We are aware of the issue and working on a solution for a future update.  Since this is not currently supported I am going to change this to an Idea so we can monitor it as a feature request.

I also think this is a very relevant feature. My cumbersome routine (iPhone) is the following: (1) Lightroom imports all photos of a day/week/vacation, (2) I'm going to delete the photos from the camera roll, (3) wait - I remember there are still some bursts in the camera roll, (4) I select the correct photos from the bursts, (5) I go back to Lightroom to auto-import them, (6) I go back to the camera roll and delete everything in it, (7) I go to Lightroom and try to remember which bursts I just edited to delete the main photo originally imported for every burst as it usually is not among the photos I wanted to keep from the burst.

Even if Lightroom CC in general does not support a burst/stacking feature across all platforms, it would be just so much better to just import all photos from the burst in the first place so that I can easily clean out my camera roll and deal with the individual burst photos later. From a workflow perspective, this would be much more straightforward.

Thanks!

This is “must have” due to limited iPhone storage. Without this issue getting fixed auto import is just useless :(
