Hi,

Just wondering if it’s possible working without saving or exporting any photo in iCloud.

If I export RAW files, I have very heavy files on pixelmator folder and if I’m using a mobile connection this is synchronised using too much data.

I would like use only the local storage of my ipad.

Many Thanks

Hey Pedro! Welcome to the community. To use device storage, go to Settings > Pixelmator Photo > Document Storage and choose On My iPad. The moment you do that, a Pixelmator Photo folder will be created in the On My iPad location in Files.

Hope that helps!

Hello. I do not see the option to save to iPad storage. The only option available is iCloud Drive which is automatically enabled. I am using a 2017 iPad Pro 12.9” on iOS 12.2, and have 80gb of free storage available on the iPad. Any suggestions on how to enable iPad storage?

Hello Andrius, thanks for the quick response. These screenshots are what I am seeing.

As you can see from the second image, there is no option for iPad storage.

Okay, I figured it out! See screenshot below, I had set On my iPad off in the Files app. For those who want to save on iPad, go to the Files app and click on edit and enable On my iPad.

Ahhh, well spotted! I'd forgotten it's possible to turn off iPad storage system-wide. Hopefully, anyone else having similar issues will be able to stumble upon this thread.
