  • How do you delete photos from an iPhone but keep them on a mac

    I want to delete some photos from my iPhone 6 but keep them on my MacBook - how can I do this?

    Hey Jill,.

    This should be possible as long as you do not use icloud photo library.

    With iCloud, photo library, your devices are giving you access to your library, which is stored directly in iCloud. Therefore, when you delete a photo of iCloud photo library on any device, it removes from everywhere.

    When you turn off the iCloud photo library, each device is its own independent photo library. You must manually import pictures from your phone to your MacBook, then you could remove your phone at will.

    If you wish to continue using iCloud photo library, but also want to save space on your phone, consider turning on Optimize iPhone storage in the section Photos to your phone settings iCloud!

  • is it possible to delete pictures off I phone while only keeping them inside the cloud

    Hi can anyone tell me if you can delete photos from your phone I free up space, but still have them in I cloud, & if so, how?

    Thank you Dr. Beat

    iCloud is supposed to be a device synchronization and not simply used for external storage.  You can use iCloud photo library to "optimize" the storage space on your iPhone if:

    iCloud: use iCloud photo library on your iOS device

    Optimization of the storage on your device

    When iCloud library is turned on, your device can optimize its storage keeping smaller versions of your photos on the device. All your original high-resolution is stored in iCloud photo library and can be downloaded at any time.

    • Go to settings > iCloud > Photos (or settings > Photos & camera), then click on [device] Optimize storage to activate it.

    When your device needs more storage, it automatically replaces certain original high resolution with optimized versions. If you want to replace the optimized with original life-size versions, press download and keep the originals to activate it.

  • I am able to remove a photo from my iPhone, but keep it in iCloud?

    Thank you

    Free space on your iPhone, you must choose Optimize iPhone storage.  Unfortunately, iCloud was not designed in the way you thought and that means, and not as a backup storage.  To do this, you must choose an option of third parties such as Dropbox, Flickr and my personal Photos of Google favorite.  If you use one of these options, you can completely remove the pictures from your phone and free up your storage space.

  • How can I transfer photos from my iphone 3 g on my computer

    How can I transfer unlimited for my iphone 3g to my computer.

    Hello friend.  If you mean the iPhone camera pictures, connect your iPhone to the computer via the USB cable and then open 'My computer', click on that should say 'Apple iPhone' (possibly having a picture of a camera beside him). And then go to the folder "internal storage-> DCIM-> 800AAAAA '. You should find all your photos and videos that you have recorded with your iPhone.

    For Mac users, you can use iPhoto to transfer the images from the camera.

    If you mean the pictures that sync you to iTunes. You can see this step by step guide, it's on the way to copy photos from iPod/iPhone to computer. It is easy to understand and works well enough for my iPhone 3gs.
