I have nearly 40,000 photos in my library. I cannot use Cloud as storage option and to sync between desktop and iPad because online connection via very slow satellite (live in remote location) and depletes our allowed bandwidth. Ipad cannot hold complete library, but I always need most recent photos available there. So I decided to make a new library just for ipad with only most recent years (2014 to present) but I want it to include all albums made. Some albums, including smart albums may have some photos from earlier years, e.g., 2008 etc. How can I keep them intact with those older photos, or is that possible? Does anyone have a recommendation? I do have access to a Google cloud drive and Adobe Creative Cloud. Perhaps I should put those older years there or something? Also, I keep photos library on a separate hard drive because it’s so big. Please help!
I have a MacBookPro for desktop and ipad mini. Everything’s updated: Mac Os Mojave 10.14
ipad = ios 12.0.1
