Disable Automatic Import


Today’s Question: Is there any way to prevent Lightroom Mobile from syncing images from my iPhone’s Camera Roll?

Tim’s Quick Answer: You can turn off the automatic import of photos on the Import page of the Settings within the Lightroom mobile app.

More Detail: The Lightroom mobile app (for iOS and Android devices) includes the option to automatically import the photos you capture using the camera app on your mobile device. This provides a convenient method of adding those photos to your Lightroom Classic catalog, for example. However, it is possible to disable this automatic import if you prefer.

Start by tapping the gear icon that appears at the top-right of the Lightroom mobile app. That will bring up a Settings page, where you can tap Import to access the settings related to importing photos. There you’ll find individual settings for Photos and Videos. Tap to toggle the setting to on or off based on your preference for importing photos and videos automatically.
