Photos for iOS
I hope this is in the right area.
I'm trying out the whole Photos for iOS with iCloud sync. I've been using google photos and it works great, but I really want to like iCloud photo sync. Here is my situation. I also like the idea of full resolution pictures when I use my "big camera". DSLR.
Let's say I'm taking photos of my kids. I get 20 shots in, and decide to delete 10 of them. That should leave 10 photos to upload to iCloud, assuming the phone doesn't HDR any of them.
iOS insists on uploading all 20 photos when I get in wifi range. To remedy this, I go into the recently deleted album and "delete all". iOS should now only upload 10 photos, but it doesn't. The indicator still shows "uploading 20 photos". Why?
I wouldn't have a problem with this at all if it wasn't for my asynchronous UVERSE internet (only option) with less than 1Mbps outbound. Not to mention that when I'm uploading any number of photos the rest of the devices in the house basically can't use the internet until the picture upload is complete. I guess iOS doesn't do a good job of throttling the outbound connection.
Anyone else having these problems? Why does the phone insist on uploading all the pictures even though I've deleted and emptied the recently deleted album? Why can't I have the option of NOT storing deleted photos in a recently deleted album!?!
