Photostream not updating on macbook pro
We’ve discussed how to disable Photos’ sync settings on OS X in a past article so if you want the full low-down, we recommend you read it.
Today we want to focus solely on the only settings that matter.
This means that even though we see all our photos uploaded from our Mac on our i Pad, we won’t see any photos on our i Pad on our Mac.
Therefore, make sure “i Cloud Photo Library” is enabled so when you take a picture on your i Phone or i Pad it is not only automatically uploaded to i Cloud, but it is then available on any other devices hooked into that i Cloud account.
That said, you still need to make sure that your devices are connected to the same i Cloud account, and all your settings are correctly enabled.
If you have any questions or comments you would like to contribute to this article, please leave your feedback in our discussion forum.
If you choose to do so, it will import all your photos (in a clever way that avoids duplicating the files on your disk) and then, if i Cloud Photo Library is enabled, sync the photos from Photos to the cloud.
The first thing you must make sure of is that whether you’re using a Mac, i Phone, or i Pad, that you’re signed into the same i Cloud account. The usual way you will probably want to check to make sure your i Cloud sync settings are correct is to open Photos’ preferences and verify that “i Cloud Photo Library” is checked.
Alternatively, open the i Cloud system preferences, then click on the Photos “Options…” button.
Photo sharing is a great way to make sure that no matter what device you’re using, you always have access to all your precious memories.
It means that if you’re showing someone pictures on your i Phone, you don’t have to stop and grab your laptop to show them anything stored on it.
(For that matter, you don’t have to use Photos at all, if you already have i Photo, Aperture, or a similar app you like.) Q: Is there any reason I can’t continue to sync photos via i Tunes?
