Question: iTunes not syncing all photo albums to iPhone

Using MacBook 10.13.4 version and iPhone 6s. for some reason my photo albums are not syncing to iPhone anymore. most of the albums sync but not all the photos in the albums. i use iTunes to sync with iPhone not iCloud. if its not one thing with mac stuff its another. starting to think its time for an android!! Anyone have any ideas?? I have already reboots both devices, all updated, deleted all photos and reinstalled a dozen times with same results of only partial albums syncing

Do you have more than one Photos Library? iTunes is syncing only with your System photo Library. While browsing the library, that you want to sync with iTunes, check, if "Use as System Photo Library" is grand out in the Photos > Preferences > General, as it should be.

If it is not graded out, click "Yes as System photo library" and restart both iTunes and Photos. Then try to sync again.


Sometimes the Photo Cache folder in your Photos Library becomes unreadable. In that case it will help to remove the Photo Cache from your Photos Library as described here: About Photo Cache folders - Apple Support

Ok - but since you refuse to tell us what you have ad what you are doing we have to make guesses - why not just answer the question and when we can actually give intelligent answers rather than just make wild guesses?


again

what are your iCloud settings and status on each device

Not refusing to answer anything . I obviously don’t understand the question in related to what I am doing . I plug my phone into the laptop and sync my photos via tunes . Only about half the photos sync in the folders . Most folders seem to sync . I noticed a few months ago a few photos in each album were Missing . Now about half the photos from each album are missing . Each time I resync the numbers of photos changes .i don’t use icloud . Only sync to Mac
