How can I remove photos from the iPhone but save on iCloud/desktop mac?

I have an iPhone 6 and I'm constantly short of room because of my photos.  When I go to delete a picture from my pictures it says "this photo will be deleted from iCloud photo library on all your devices" and I have NO IDEA how to disable this dang thing.  So when I delete a photo that it clears too my computer then I constantly tries to free up space on my phone in other respects.

I wish I could take a picture, saved it on my computer and iCloud and then remove it from my phone without losing.  Any ideas?  Thank you!

You can go to settings > Photos & camera on your phone and do the following:

1. turn off iCloud photo library

2 turn on my photo stream

Then on your Mac, you can open pictures and under preferences, perform the following steps:

1. on the general tab, make sure that "Copy items to the photo library" is checked

2. by virtue of iCloud, make sure 'My Photo Stream' is checked (you can also have shared Photo also controlled flow)

This should cause all photos of photo stream to be shared between devices as well as to import into your photo library.

See you soon,.

    I went back to Lightroom after opening was abandoned by Apple and I'm happy to be back. I can easily import photos from my iPhone 6 on my desk, but what to do with the pictures on my phone. With opening could easily automatically delete photos from the iPhone. I don't see anything similar in Lightroom. Do I have to remove my photos manually by selecting one at a time?

    I ran a test, import of some of them and by checking the box "delete after importing", and it was successfully deleted photos off the phone. BUT each of the imports is now duplicated in my photo library. What a drag! I don't want to have to go manually by the bias of 2000 + photos, manually remove duplicates when Photos already know that they were already imported at first.

    In iPhoto, you can plug in your phone, import your photos but not the remove immediately after the import, and the next time you connect your phone, iPhoto would say "XX pictures have already been imported. You want to remove them? "It's ideal for cautious people who wanted to verify that the photos had successfully transferred before deleting.

  • When can I remove photos from the iPhone by making sure they are saved in the cloud?

    When I can I free up space on my iPhone 6, deletion of photos/videos, ensure that they are saved in the cloud?
    When I buy more space on the cloud, it is to iCloud, iCloud Drive, iCloud photo library?
    Too confusing...

    iCloud is a synchronization service, not off of storage of the unit. That means that it is not designed to "free space" on your phone by moving your photos and videos to iCloud. All photos will remain synchronized between your phone and iCloud.

    You can select the feature to OPTIMIZE, significantly reduce the space that take your photos on your phone.

    When you upgrade your iCloud space, it's for all features in iCloud, as backup space, iCloud disk space and so on.

    If you really want the maximum space on your phone, you can import your pictures and videos on a PC and then delete them from your phone. It does use icloud photo library.

  • How to remove pictures of the iphone but not on icloud?

    Hello, I have an iphone 6 and I have a backup to icloud. I need to free up space on my iphone, I noticed when I delete a photo on my phone its disappear automatically icloud. Is there a way to remove photos from the phone, but keep about icloud?

    Thank you!

    iCloud Libray Photo is not a backup service; It is a synchronization service. Whatever you do a device is synchronized with all other devices, including your computer and iCloud. That's how it was designed to work.

    If you are running out of storage space on your device, choose to use a local library optimized photos. This will dynamically adjust the size of the library based on how much storage is available.

    Otherwise, you will need to disable iCPL and return to the management of your image sync via iTunes.
