If you’re ever in a bind and need to access photos from your iPhone or iPad that you’ve transferred to your laptop, be aware that there may be some complications. In this article, we’ll go over how to do it and what to watch out for.
Can I keep photos in iCloud and my computer?
Photos are a big part of many people’s lives, and many people want to be able to keep their photos safe and accessible anywhere they go. Apple makes it easy to keep your photos in iCloud, so you can access them on any device you have an account for. You can also save your photos to your computer if you want to keep them there.
Can I sync pictures from iPhone to computer and iCloud both?
Yes, pictures can be synced from your iPhone to a computer and then to iCloud. However, if you want to keep the pictures on the computer and not have them sync to iCloud, you will need to save the pictures to a folder on the computer before syncing them to iCloud.
Are my photos on my computer or iCloud?
If you’ve got photos stored on your computer, they’re probably safe. Your computer’s hard drive is a physical place where your files are physically stored, so transferring those photos to a different device wouldn’t be an easy task.
Photos stored on iCloud, on the other hand, are backed up regularly and can be accessed from any device with an internet connection. If you want to move photos from your computer to your iCloud account, there are a few things to keep in mind:
– Photos that are password protected will require you to enter your password to access them.
– Photos that have been shared with others will appear in their respective social media accounts.
– Any photos that have been deleted from your computer will not appear on iCloud.

Why can’t I see my photos on iCloud?
If you have photos stored in your iCloud account, but can’t see them on your computer or device, there may be a few reasons why.
First, make sure that the photos are actually stored in iCloud and not just backed up to iCloud. Photos that are only backed up to iCloud won’t appear on any device or computer.
Second, make sure that the photos are transferred to your device or computer in the correct format. Photos that were originally saved as JPEGs may not show up properly if they’re transferred as MP4s.
Finally, make sure that the photos have been synced to the iCloud account on the device or computer where you’re trying to view them.
