I put more than 1000 photos from my roll on LR5 mobile (on IPAD). When I came back from vacations to my desktop in order to sync them with LR5 on my Mac, a collection appeared with 16 photos and then all my other photos desapeared (from my collection on LR mobile) with the all the modifications I've done during my vacations on the Ipad. Is it possible to recoverer them and what happened?
Did I get you right that you synced the photos within a wifi network from Lr Mobile to Lr Desktop? Could it be that you connected your Lr Desktop with a different catalog but the same Adobe id? Could you send me the collection name then could try to have a look at the back-end.
