ICloud photo storage

Hello

I will be backpacking for a month or two and probably will not have enough room on my phone to store all of the photos I take. I intend to upload them to iClould whenever I had the chance to connect to the Internet. I would ask if I wanted to delete the photos on my photo automatically deletes the photos on iCloud (I don't want it)?

Thank you.

With iCloud library enabled, you cannot delete a photo on a device (or iCloud.com) without deleting each device which uses iCloud photo library (iCloud.com). In order to save space on your mobile devices (and indeed your Mac if you want to) turn on the optimization of the pictures on these devices (settings > photos & camera > optimize storage on your mobile device and Photo preferences > optimize storage on your Mac)

Dynamic optimization, it reduces the resolution of your photos, if necessary, so that you don't notice it occurring initially. However, when necessary, it is very effective, and users have reported libraries being optimized for much less than 10% of their original size in some cases. My own library is about 9% of its original on my phone size.

  • A small question about iCloud photo storage

    Hello

    I was wondering if once the internal memory of the iPhone is full iCloud will continue store photos? Or the phone must have storage for iCloud to store? I just want to know before you buy an extra 50gig.

    Thank you

    iCloud is NOT a hard drive in the sky.

    iCloud photo library is designed to synchronize photos between your device and your iCloud-storage space. If you choose the OPTIMIZATION setting, the device will have files small size phone while files are in iCloud. This can drastically reduce the needs of storage on your phone.

    The number of photos and videos on your device is always synchronized between your phone and iCloud. Remove deletions from one place to another.

    iCloud "will not continue storing the photos...» "for you.

  • On photos on iphone with iCloud library storage

    How can I limit the space used by photos in ios9 without deleting icloud?

    With iCloud library enabled, you cannot delete a photo on a device (or iCloud.com) without deleting each device which uses iCloud photo library (iCloud.com). In order to save space on your mobile devices (and indeed your Mac if you want to) turn on the optimization of the pictures on these devices (settings > photos & camera > optimize storage on your mobile device and Photo preferences > optimize storage on your Mac)

    Dynamic optimization, it reduces the resolution of your photos, if necessary, so that you don't notice it occurring initially. However, when necessary, it is very effective, and users have reported libraries being optimized for much less than 10% of their original size in some cases. My own library is about 9% of its original on my phone size.

    In most cases, optimize your photos should be enough to raise the space related issues on your device. However, if you have an exceptionally large library you may need to disable iCloud photo library on your mobile device and use instead the photo stream. You can then use a computer to manage the photo stream photos and have them automatically imported into you iCloud photo library.

  • deleted despite many storage iCloud photos

    I have a lot of storage iCloud and still when I delete a photo from my iPhone it says it is also removed from my albums to iCloud on all devices

    That's the way iCloud library works by design, remove in a single device removes them all. See the iCloud Photo library FAQ for details.

  • storage of complete Mac, optimize is on but icloud photos paused

    Hello

    I can't update my iCloud photo library of my Macbook Air. I get the message "update of the photo library of iCloud is suspended. Your Mac storage is full. "I understand that stay that copies low resolution of my pictures on my mac, but I don't know why he can't continue to upload photos high resolution to my iCloud library when converting to other files on my mac for the versions low resolution. About 400 pictures sync before I got this message. I have still 46GB of available storage iCloud. Any help would be appreciated! Thank you.

    Your Mac can not work and convert photos in versions optimized, so only 2.3 GB free on the system drive. The conversion must also storage.

    Try to release at least 10 GB by moving temporarily files on an external drive - video, audio, or similar.

    Your options are

    Select who will take your library and expand when you add new photos.

    Note: for you husband to use the same Photo to iCloud library it should be connected to the same Apple/iCloud ID and would thus, share the same e-mail account, contacts, messages, etc...  It's probably not what you want.

  • Removed all icloud photo library, 1.9 GB still in use

    I deleted all of my photo, My Photo Stream etc. flows including shared library iCloud.

    I have also ensured that the recently deleted album is empty. I disabled iCloud photo library on each device. It should not be a trace of left.

    However, I always told my library back 1.9 GB of my storage iCloud. There is an option to turn it off completely but it will take 30 days, which is a long wait when I don't know if it will work.

    Any ideas that he could be taking all this space? Or if there is a way to reset all empty without waiting for 30 days?

    I use the latest version of iOS on my iPad and the iPhone, and the El Capitan on my Mac if that helps.

  • Should I Photostream if I use iCloud photo library

    Hi, I use iCloud library on my MBP, two iPhones and iPad and I still active Photostream.

    I'll try to find our knowledge if I need Photostream as well as use iCloud.  I have more than enough storage for the moment in the cloud then from what I can tell Photostream is not something that would fail me if I turned it off.  At the same time, I can't find a definitive answer anywhere!

    Grateful that if ever I decide to stop using the cloud, I can turn Photostream for my last few thousand photos.

    I also try to work if there is anyway that I can reduce the amount of space on my iPhone which currently takes about 13 GB of photo library.

    Any help would be welcome.

    Thank you

    If you do not use my Photo Stream, turn off all devices.

    You need my photo only, stream if you also use older devices with iOS 7 or more, which can not support iCloud photo library. But if all your devices are set to synchronize with iCloud photo library, you don't need my photo stream. It might even cause problems.

  • iCloud photo library and FIRST photos in iOS

    I would like to enable capture of RAW files in iOS 10. I have a 256 GB 7 iPhone +, but at 30 MB per DNG, storage will be used quickly if I don't get the photos on the phone regularly.

    It is true that I am still unclear on iCloud photo library works. I activated on my iPhone, but I think it means it stores the photos on the phone and also downloads in the cloud?

    If I had to come home every day and transfer the DNG on my Mac and remove them from my phone, I assume that they will have is no longer a storage space on my phone, but would take place in iCloud if they were downloaded before I moved out of my phone?

    Looks like I should cut iCloud photo library if I am shooting RAW, since I would like to download very large photos that I don't necessarily want to keep?

    iCloud is a synchronisation/mirroring service and not a traditional cloud solution based.  If you are looking for a more traditional based cloud solution, then consider using an application third, for example Dropbox, Flickr or Google Photos.
