If I take a photo with the just updated Lightroom CC v.4.1.0. camera on my iPad Pro it will be saved ONLY into the Lightroom camera folder (and in "all photos", of course) instead into the folder where I am when I started the camera. (The Lightroom camera folder is and should be only an intelligent folder recognizing photos taken with the Lightroom app.) This is very annoing, because I now have to import every single photo I have taken afterwards into the folder I want it to.

I understand it was an intentional change, but I agree it has disadvantages.

As a potential solution to put forward, would it solve your issue if it respected the "auto add" album? So you could pick an album to put those photos into, and change it to a different album anytime you wanted to? What kind of albums are you shooting the photos into?

Hi Victoria, thank you for your reply.
Changing the auto add album is an option when you mainly save to one single folder. But changing folders frequently only shifts the problem to changing the auto add folder every time before taking or importing photos. The way it was solved before - saving the photos in the album from where you start the camera app from - was simple and logic. The button to take new photos is placed next to the button to add photos from another folder to the album, so to add newly taken photos to this album too, is obviously logical (and was therefore used that way before).
