What is the best synchronised photo library and the best way of editing photos both on mobile and desktop applications? I have recently been caught out editing photos via the Photos extensions app which has downscaled my edited images (more info here). This lead me to research into using new apps and workflows. I want to be able to edit my photos on my iPhone or iPad and have those adjustments synchronised to my desktop application. I then have access to full resolution edited photos on my mac as well as edited (and possibly downscaled/ compressed) photos on my mobile devices - *even when I have deleted the images off my iPhone* Many mobile apps use non destructive editing but only by keeping a copy in their library on the iPhone - this would get full, be emptied and then those adjustments are lost only giving me access to whatever I have on the Mac such as the original or the flattened jpeg. What are people using now? What will iCloud Photo Library change for us? Where will we go after the discontinuation of Aperture? Does anyone currently use Adobe Creative Cloud + Lightroom Desktop + Lightroom Mobile? Theres also the question of how and where to store the master library (300gb of photos) in the cloud? on a mac mini server? on a desktop? Where can we import photos to and have the originals sync'ed to the master library? (I'm thinking of unconnected devices like DSLR cameras, what if we don't have a mac and normally import onto the iPad directly?) I would prefer it if I didn't have to store all my high resolution photos on a cloud somewhere and instead stored the master library locally, but downscaled versions are uploaded to keep online storage cost low and when a photo is edited on a mobile device its just the adjustments which are synced/uploaded - and then when viewing the master via a desktop app those adjustments are applied to the masters.
