ICloud deleting deletes photo library photos from iCloud, photo sharing

I have iCloud photo library on my Mac and on my iPhone.  I created an album of photos and videos to spend several weeks going apartment hunting in my neighborhood.  I have friends who are also looking for apartments in my neighborhood and these photos and videos would be useful for them.  So I want to share all these content with them using iCloud, photo sharing.  However, I have this great set of photos/videos over on my Mac or my iPhone, because I have an apartment and my use for these photos.

So I want to:

1. create a shared album (let's call it 'Videos apartment').

2. Add all my photos and videos of my apartment hunting that is currently in my library to iCloud.

3 share only iCloud library with my friends (they can add, comment, do what they want)

4 delete the original files from my library to iCloud I don't don't need or want these photos over on my personal devices.

My question is: if I delete the photo in step 4, which will also remove the same pictures of the iCloud Shared Library?

It would be useful to know if the iCloud share photos are copies separated from my photos of the library, or are the same.

Sharing albums and Photo library iCloud iCloud different services and are stored independently from each other.

When you create a shared album and share with your friends, you will see the shared album and photos in your photo library, but you can remove the originals from your photo library, as long as you do not remove the shared album photos. In the shared album photos can be slightly smaller than your original photos, because there is a limit of size of pixels for shared photos.

  • OMG: Deleting photos in iCloud library does not work, all my deleted photos were stored by Apple!

    Today, I used the iCloud for Windows App (PC) to use the new feature of upload/download to iCloud photo library.

    I activated the automatic download feature, and I'm still shocked!

    All my deleted photos (even older then 30 days) are still there. All the pictures I deleted on my iPhone before, in aid of the iCloud photo library, is always there. They are now on my PC in the download folder.
