Here's my scenario: I have around 60Gig of photos on my desktop Mac. That mac is backed up regularly and I consider it safe for my photos. However I would like to be able to use my iPad to decide which photos to keep, to favorite, or delete.
I could use Apple's iCloud Photos but I have two problems:
- I don't want to pay for space that I already have at home
- I want to know for sure that all my masters are in my possession
I can sync my iPad with the desktop, asking for all photos, collections, etc to be synced. Now my iPad has all of them. But if I delete one on my iPad it won't delete it on my deskop. I'm not even sure that if I favorite it on my iPad that it will be favorited on my desktop.
Is there a way to get this done without giving Apple control over all my photos?
