Lightroom Mobile: Storing Photo Library in Creative Cloud

I’m interested in backing up my photo library to folders in the Adobe Creative Cloud app. I want to reserve the Lightroom library for recent work only. Is this a viable solution? Also, is 1 TB the maximum storage space offered?

Some features I’m looking for:

1. I would like to be able to store RAW and HEIC as well as video file types without conversion or compression.

2. I would like to be able to upload files directly from my iOS photo library to the Creative Cloud storage.

3. I would like for my wife to be able to view all of these files from her phone.

4. I would like to be able to see all file thumbnails without having to download original files.

My experience so far:

- Very smooth and fast upload process.

- Nice organizational layout with the dark background and timeline slider that displays month and year.

- Unfortunately, video thumbnails don’t appear to render.

- Images don’t seem to retain the metadata necessary to revert to their original non-edited state after re-downloading from Creative Cloud. (Many of my images have been edited in Apple Photos. In Apple Photos, these edits are non-destructive). I’ll have to see if I can batch revert my library to all originals before uploading...
