P: "Store locally" needs option to choose between smart preview and original

Often I don't have a good enough mobile internet connection. But I like to do edits on my mobile devices.

So the option to store "smart previews" locally is great.

But it does not work if I have original files in the cloud, then it will just download the whole files with the "store locally" option. And yea, most mobile devices don't have much more than 1TB available and it's just not always necessary to store the 50 megapixel raw files on the phone.

So having a choice when hitting that "store locally" button between "download smartpreviews" or "download originals" is a must.

There's an option in the main app Settings to "Only download smart previews", if that is enabled then only smart previews will be downloaded when you use the "Store Locally" option. I have my entire library downloaded that way to my iDevices, though I can on an individual basis choose the "Get this original" option.

Ok but that still limits me if I want to store a specefic album als original.

Settings per album would be more efficient than a global limitation.
