Question: How can I download PHOTOs from iCloud to MAC?

Researched, checked support, and the only option so far: select individual photos and download individually.

No other leads. With over 4,000 photos, this is not feasible. Using Yosemite X, 10.10.5; Apple has deleted this option from earlier OS,

MacBook Pro, OS X Yosemite (10.10.4)

See this article iCloud Photo Library - Apple Support

When you turn on iCloud Photo Library, the time it takes for your photos and videos to upload to iCloud depends on the size of your collection and your Internet speed. If you have a large collection of photos and videos, your upload might take more time than usual. You can see the status and pause the upload for one day.

sorry if this is a "resend". iCloud Photo Library is already synched to Photos. My question concerns DOWNLOADING

to MAC or EXTERNAL DRIVE. I work with different libraries, hence I'd need to work with the same on each platform.

Thanks for trying.

The easiest way would be to export the photos from Photos.


You can do a manual download at iCloud.com/Photos. Hold down the command key while selecting the photos. Then click Download. Another option is to select a Moment, then click the Share button, and then cancelling the Share. The photos should remain selected.
