Why it appears after updating to Photos from iphoto, Which I don't get why Mac did that. As Photos seems to run so slowly compared to iphoto. It takes forever for pictures to appear when inserting a memory card with new ones and a long time to upload to photos compared to before I "upgraded" from iphoto. Yet some reviews state its fast. Though I am still confused by the main reason that lead to this move.

Is it currently uploading your photos to icloud?

I haven't used icloud for a while.I was uploading from my memory card into Photos

Photos if you are signed in will sync with iCloud. Do you have that setting turned on?

Ask Your Own Mac Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
I don't think so. We don't want to pay extra to expand icloud storage space therefore we turned off automatic update as there is no more space for it to do so.

Make sure:

On your Mac, go to System Preferences > iCloud > Options next to Photos, then deselect iCloud Photo Library. On your Apple TV (4th generation), go to Settings > Accounts > iCloud and under Photos press Select to turn off iCloud Photo

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
