Lightroom taking up too much storage space on iPad OS

iPad OS Storage issues.

 

I noticed how, Lightroom on iPad takes up more and more of my local storage on iOS, on average 15-20gb. Interestingly, this is the same regardless whether I have 10 or 100 RAW file in my Lightroom library for editing.

When I check my local on cloud space I can see that there is barely anything used, and the application itself is supposed to only take up around 250mb. 

Deleting the app, force quitting, and force restarting the iPad do not fix the issue so wondering if anyone else has seen this on their iPad. My iPad is only 1 year old and running the latest OS.

 

any help or sharing of experience would be appreciated!

Also, with every photo that I export from Lightroom to my local photo library it then adds a whopping 2GB! Of storage onto my iPad. 

I export all my edits as .jpg with around 10MB of file size and I wonder why it adds 2GB for every 10MB photo, it doesn't add up.

How do you conclude this? Your screenshots show a completely different story. Local storage (your first screenshot) shows only 280 KB for local copies and 104.4 MB for cached files.
