Right, but doesn't it sync it in the cloud? So basically I can have as many as I want? Also, is there a way I can download the previews for offline on the iPad?
Answer 1: Lightroom for mobile is not a backup service. Lightroom desktop does not sync your original raw files to the cloud and to Lightroom for mobile. Lightroom desktop creates and syncs images to the cloud in the form of Smart Previews. Smart Previews are smaller versions of your original files, roughly 1.5 or 2 MB in size, and retain all the flexibility of a raw file. Changes made to Smart Previews automatically sync with your originals.
Answer 2: Yes, you can Enable Offline Editing in the Lightroom Mobile when you are in the extreme locations, then you will not be able to rely on downloading the Smart Previews on the fly. Collections can be enabled for off line editing. The three dots on the bottom right hand side of the large tile, allow selection of “Enable Offline Editing”.

Well, I knew it didn't save Raw files, I know it's saving smart previews. Maybe I should word my question better. What I'm saying is, since it syncs in the cloud, it doesn't care how many I sync? Also, if I don't download for offline use does it take up space on my iPad? Which won't be a problem, I'm just trying to figure it out. I have a 128GB iPad as well as Fiber Optic internet with a really fast upload speed.
The reason I haven't done Lightroom Mobile before is because I did not have this kind of internet and I had a data cap. Now that I have this, I want to use it.
I can also import photos that I take with the iPhone or iPad and put them in Lightroom from the device also correct?
Yes, you can sync as much as previews to the cloud.
If you don't enable the offline editing it will not take any space on the Mobile Device( Tablet or IPAD), however as soon you turn off the Internet on the Mobile device you won't be able to edit or access any Previews.
Yes you can add Images from the Mobile device and put them in Lightroom.

Hope it helps.
It must be a limit. In one of my collections i have 6000 photos and only 1795 are synconized, Why is that?
In another i have 2100 and all is syncronized. I dont understand this and i want to re-syncronize if possible to get all in.
