Lightroom Mobile gets copies of the originals and syncs those to Lightroom Desktop.
Ok! Thank you for the fast answer. That means when i take a photo with my iPad the lightroom mobile app sents the original image to my desktop?

Yes, the original images are synchronized to Lightroom Mobile in the cloud and copied down to your desktop.
I don't know if this is exactly the case. Correct me if I am wrong.
If you take the photo using the device (Ipad or mobile phone), especially using the Lightroom mobile camera, a local file is created and stored on the device. This file remains on your device even when you sync or try to remove the photo from within the app. If capturing in .DNG it can very quickly become a storage space issue on your device. The mobile app doesn't have the capability to delete photos from disk either if you try to remove them within Lightroom Mobile. I have spoken to adobe techs about this and they admit there is no ability to delete from disk within the Lightroom Mobile app.
I am using Lightroom on Android however, perhaps it is different on apple devices.
