Question: Synch photos from a mac to an ipad when icloud photos are turned on on the mac

Hi -


Random question...my mac has my entire photo library on it (full resolution), and that library is synched with iCloud photos. I have an iPad with a ton of storage and I would like to put my 30GB photo library on it. I realize that I can turn on iCloud photos and synch it over the internet. Can I synch my ipad with my mac (iCloud photos is turned on on my mac), synch all of the full res photos, disconnect and then turn on iCloud photos on the iPad. Anyone do this?


Thanks!

I haven't tried doing what you describe, but I do know that photos synced via cable using iTunes are treated very differently[*] from photos then with the device camera or imported from a camera or memory card, so I doubt that iCloud Photo Library will accept them as equivalent to photos it holds. What it will do about them, I couldn't say.


[*] For example, photos synced using iTunes can only be deleted by a subsequent tunes sync that omits them.
