LR Cloud: replace with original/smartpreview function

I would really like an easy way to decide what to backup in the cloud fully and what to store as a smart preview. So an easy watch to switch between storing full sized originals or smart-previews.

So first, that would need the ability to filter in an album or in all photos for "smart previews" and "original".

Then I could select a whole album I shot on a phone, and switch it to "smart preview" deleting the originals from the cloud (that are stored in LR classic locally).

Or the other way around, I have some albums shared as smartpreview, I just go in there in LR mobile and select all photos and hit "replace smartpreviews with originals" and LR Classic then pushes the originals to the could as copy.


At the moment it seems I can only look for original files manually and deleted them manually, which will removed them from all connected albums, so if I reupload them as smartpreview I have to check all albums I had it linked with and add it back in there.

Aller simplement dans LR Classic, sur la collection partagée correspondante à l'Album dans LR, clic droit sur le titre de la collection, duplique, une copie non synchronisée de la collection est créée.
Ensuite clic droit sur le titre de la collection synchronisée, Supprimer, et une nouvelle boite de dialogue vous invitera à supprimer cette collection, et vous proposera de supprimer ou conserver les photos dans le catalogue du Cloud ainsi que les Raws dans le Cloud, choisir 'option de suppression. Les Raws et l'Album seront supprimés du Cloud.
Si vous souhaitez avoir les aperçus dynamiques, synchroniser simplement la copie de la collection, un nouvel Album sera créé sur LR et vous pourrez simplement renomme cette collection, l'album portera le même nom.

Simply go to LR Classic, on the shared collection corresponding to the Album in LR, right click on the title of the collection, duplicate, an unsynchronized copy of the collection is created.
Then right click on the title of the synchronized collection, Delete, and a new dialog box will invite you to delete this collection, and you will propose to delete or keep the photos in the cloud catalog as well as Raws in the Cloud, choose ' delete option. Raws and Album will be removed from the cloud.
If you wish to have dynamic previews, simply synchronize the copy of the collection, a new Album will be created on LR and you can simply rename this collection, the album will have the same name.

That's only doing a quarter of what I intend and I don't see the part where it's simple. :p
