Syncing Google Photos to desktop and sorting into folders - without altering anything in the cloud 1 Recommended Answer 12 Replies 42 Upvotes
Last edited 8/8/18
I have this workflow that I'm trying to sort out, which is creating a combined catalogue for both mobile and camera shots.
I'm having the hardest time figuring out how to get my mobile photos synced to my local drive. I want to keep my google photos intact and don't want to upload my camera phones to google photos. I just want to view combined assets in lightroom or whatever, essentially just combined into a local folder - keeping google photos for all the goodness it has, untouched. The purely copying portion is easy if I weren't sorting the photos outside of the folder it copies too. I just don't want to keep downloading copies that have already been sorted...
I've drawn a workflow, for which to me makes sense, but perhaps I'm doing everything wrong. I hope this makes sense.
