Is it possible to import pictures to Lr CC then later move to Lr Classic and folders?

I want to start my editing in Lr mobile then send everything to Lr Classic with all the sidecar, settings, and original raw files to my Lr Classic folder structure. Is this possible?

Yes, if you enable cloud sync in Classic, it will download any originals you add via LR mobile, complete with the editing you've done. If you only have 20GB of cloud space, you might want to think about upgrading to 1TB, as it's a bit of a pain to have to keep clearing out the cloud every time you get to 20GB.

However, Victoria failed to mention that some things don't you can edit in the LR Cloudy apps don't come back to LR Classic. Somethings can't be added at all in LR Cloud such as Job info and copyright details, but also one main thing you can add in LR Cloud that does not come back to LR Classic are Keywords.

All edits come back, as Victoria stated. Some added metadata does not, notably keywords and the people data.

Copyright - that's incorrect, it can be added in LR Cloud, both when capturing and after, and this syncs back to Classic.

What I meant by "Copyright Details" are: copyright status, Rights usage Terms, and Copyright URL. As far as I can tell, LR Cloudy only has a single field called "Copyright" where you can enter some text.

Ah, agreed. Basic Copyright is fine. More extensive metadata (such as that and some location data) is not in LR Cloud.
