I’ve gobs of images in iCloud, robotically uploaded from two completely different telephones. Most/all of them are redundant, as I’ve additionally imported them into Images on my Mac. I would like the iCloud area to again up these telephones. I really feel sure it must be potential to mount the iCloud storage as a digital drive from my Mac, or entry my iCloud photograph storage from Images, in order that I can examine the images are duplicates and delete them, or obtain any I do not have already got on the pc — and delete them.
However the images do not seem beneath iCloud in Finder. I attempted enabling Images beneath iCloud in Settings, considering that may let the iCloud images present up in Images, however evidently that tries to sync my native photograph library as much as iCloud, which in fact fails as a result of iCloud is full.
I’ve learn I ought to have the ability to entry the images by going to icloud.com with a browser, however that does not appear to be working, both.
I do know I may pay to get extra iCloud storage, however I do not need to do this, as a result of I’ve no need or have to maintain all these images in iCloud anyway.
Replace: Possibly I am going about this the fallacious manner. I finally managed to get in to iCloud.com, and I see that if I delete images there, it is also going to insist on deleting them from all units, which isn’t what I need. I suppose I’ve to inform my telephones to cease synching images to iCloud, after which possibly fear about expediting their deletion from iCloud.
