When using the Auto Add new photos feature now Lightroom Mobile searches in every folder in the device. I'd like to choose which folder to look for. I don't want Lightroom sync WhatsApp images.

Yes please! I currently only have it set to sync DNGs, but have to manually import another folder of JPGs that I'd like kept on Lr. But I want to exclude downloads, WhatsApp images, etc.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Lightroom Mobile: Choose folders for auto add feature.

When I turn on auto add function on Lightroom CC mobile in order to automatically upload photos taken with mobile, it also uploads junk from everywhere else, especially images received by WhatsApp.  So I would like to enable auto add function only for Camera Roll.

Yes please.... This is a major pain and privacy issue.... I don't want to auto import not so save pictures. Allow us to choose which folders auto import.

This really messes up trying to move to Lightroom cc where I save everything In the cloud... I don't want to save the junk pics in folders I don't care about.
