    So I chose to have my photos in the cloud to show on my iPad Pro and they all synced but they are blurry and look blown up. Is it supposed to be like this?

    Unless you open the photo, it is usually a low-res placeholder to save storage space; if you open it, it will be downloaded and you'll have the full-res version that looks nicer. See if that's the issue.

    If you have an Internet connection, you should see a little circle indicator at the bottom-right showing progress as it downloads the full-res version.

    Go to Settings<Photos & Camera<Optimize iPad Storage. Is it checked? If so, you'll view lower resolution versions.

    Thanks, I can't check until later when I get home from work but if I have it optimized to save storage can I tap to view a picture and have it full resolution while I am viewing it then when I exit, it return to a low res thumbnail? I only have a 32 GB iPP and I don't want to waste storage with photos.

    I "think" so but I'm not sure. But I'm sure others know . . . . :)

    I can say that I can view what I know to be a higher res photo on my iPad with high quality detail. What happens after I close it, I don't know.

    I use Photos only for my lecture assets, studio process shots for social media, and personal photos and never give quality much thought. I can say that my optimized Photos library on my iPad is 1.5 GB and the iCloud version is 6.6GB so overall my Photos library is pretty "small". (I use Mylio for my professional archives and that library is much, much, much larger.)

    Correct.

    Keep in mind you need a wifi connection to view optimized pictures in full resolution or else you'll keep seeing blurry photos when you click on it.
