I am fairly new to the whole Adobe Creative Cloud Service thing, and I get a little confused about how images are stored and accessed.

 

Libraries in the Creative Cloud application share the same images on tablet and desktop. This I think are images I uploaded to the Libraries folder.

 

Cloud Documents also share the images on the tablet and desktop version. However, this seems to have photos added though Photoshop on the tablet.

 

However, that is where it stops.

 

On the iPad, it looks like I can access photos I have added to Lightroom under Your Work and Lr photos. However, I can’t find this option anywhere on Creative clouds for desktop.

 

Mobile Creation also has photos in Creative Cloud on the tablet that I can’t find in the desktop version. I can’t find these photos added in any of the applications, so how are photos added to this folder?

 

The only app I easily can open images added to different folders are Photoshop Express. Which list photo roll, and options for open Creative Cloud, CC Library (which does not show preview of HEIC files) and Lightroom.

 

I was hoping for a more streamlined solution where there where one folder structure and you could open and close and save all edits from one place regardless of device and application used. Now it seems like photos and changes are added everywhere.

 

Does this mean that if I add a photo from for example Cloud Docs to Lightroom, it will take up space as two images, stored in two different places in Creative Cloud?
