Question: One way iCloud from iPhone
I really would like to use iCloud on my iPhone so that it would upload all photos and videos to the Cloud. But I DON'T want everything in Photos on my Mac to download to my iPhone.
As I understand iCloud, if I have it turned "on" on my phone, and have it turned "on" on my MacBook, everything goes to iCloud and then shows up on both of the devices. I have almost 8,000 pictures/videos on my laptop and I don't want them to all be on my phone - even in the smaller format. I just want all of my photos/videos on my phone to upload to iCloud and then to my MacBook. But I don't want everything in iCloud to show up on my phone.
I currently have iCloud turned off and PhotoStream on. But PhotoStream doesn't upload my videos, only the photos. And I take quite a few videos.
Is there some work around or script that would accomplish what I'm after? I can't be the only one that has way more on their laptop than they want on their phone ...
iPhone 6s, iOS 11.2.6
