How do I remove photos from my LR mobile app but leave them in the cloud and on my Mac?
I’ve just gotten back from a trip, where I took my iPad as my only computer. At the end of each day, I imported the Raw photos into the iPad photos app, and then imported them into LR mobile. Now Home, the photos have synced to the Adobe Cloud (after upgrading my storage) and to LR CC “classic“ on my Mac. Now I want to free up space on my iPad, keeping only the best trip photos on the IPad, for now. (In the future they’ll need to go too, to make room for the next trip.)
What is the correct way to remove ”originals” from the iPad, while preserving them on my Mac and in the Cloud? I want to be sure I’m retaining the Raw originals.
Thanks in advance. Bill
Have you tried the Clear Cache option within the Lr Mobile setting->Local storage.
This option would purge the local copied original when they are not marked as "stored locally" and already uploaded to the server-side.
Hope this helps.

Once they are definitely synced to the Cloud (they don't even have to be synced down to Classic - although that would be even safer just in case you accidentally remove one from the Cloud) they can be deleted from the iOS Photos App. And as Guido says, also once synced, Clearing Cache should reduce the space taken up on the device.
