Thanks to some excellent input from this group, I learned that my iPad wasn't quite new enough to handle the Lightroom update, so I got a new iPad (and my mom inherited a nice iPad from me).

 

The new iPad Air is great, but I'm going to need to budget space. During the early days of the pandemic, I made it a habit to download photos directly from my camera to my iPad (wirelessly). 

 

QUESTION: What is the best procedure to:

  • Identify the photos that are housed on my iPad (the ones I transferred wirelessly from camera), and
  • Ensure those photos exist safely in my desktop library before clearing them from the iPad memory?

 

Thanks in advance.

UPDATE: In the short term, CLEARING THE CACHE creates quite a bit of space.

LATEST

All photos added to Lightroom on the iPad are uploaded to the cloud. Sometimes this takes awhile depending on the speed of your network. You can check the uploading process and the sync status by tapping on the cloud in the upper right corner of Lightroom. An even better way to confirm everything has uploaded, is to visit your lightroom cloud at lightroom.adobe.com. Everything you see here has successfully uploaded to the cloud.

Clearing the cache removes temporary local storage of your images and is safe to do because your images are in the cloud.
