I bought my wife an iPad Air 2 with 128GB, this is where my problem starts. She wants all her old photos be uploaded to iPad so she can show to her friends and relatives as and when she wants to gossip. That went all well just upload it but it took a while (hours). That is all the photos I must loaded to my local drive not on external network drive at home.
My local drive is a SSD disk only 256GB. I switch to the SSD drive whne the original 500GB drive crashed on me. It works well until I loaded all her photos and occupied the disk space. This is the point I am having problem. I need to remove some old folders away to make way for the new photos to come in. I still need working space for my work space too.
iTunes does not like this. Photo folders went off, when I sync to upload the new folders, the removed folders will go off from iPad also. I realise I need to compress the photos on my local disk. I need to do two things. One is to compress all the photos in original JPG about 1 to 2MB large down to smaller size. it will result to more working folders I need either in the network drive or local drive. Any way to do it with a simple command rather than I use the software to convert one more time to a smaller size photos?
Second is that can I keep the folders on the iPad yet I remove from my local disk to make way for the new photo folders? I do not seem to have the way to control it. Once I unchecked those uploaded photo folders, it will disappear from iPad after the fresh upload.
Your kind advise is highly appreciated. My hair already white enough do not wish to have it all fallen off.
Thank you guys.
