O.K., today i've installed 8.1.1 on my wife's 5S. I've run across two problems.
1-How do i get iTunes to open up when i plug in her iPhone? Right now, it's opening iPhoto.
2-She has waaay to many photos on her phone. I've downloaded Google Drive, to save phone space. How do i get her photos onto Drive?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
P.S. It's been a long time since i've owned an iPhone, and i've forgotten a lot.

How can I remove some data off of my phone to make room for the 8.1.1 update?
She can download Box, Dropbox and OneDrive to store photos. You can create folders and subfolders and keep the photos organized. There should be a place on all those, including Google Drive to upload photos from the Photos app. No need for iTunes, unless you're backing up the phone. I back up to iCloud. Once she gets her photos uploaded to Google Drive or the other apps, she can delete them from the camera roll.
The cloud based photo storage apps are all a little different. I don't use Google Drive. I do use the others.
With Google Drive, tap the + in the top right corner. Then you have options. Tap Folder to create a folder. Tap Upload Photos to upload all the photos. You can choose which album to upload from. If you want to upload all the photos, then tap Camera roll.

Re: 8.1.1 updating
Or you can let iPhoto open and use that to download the pictures.
What I use is Google +. It automatically backs up from my phone just like iCloud does but I have a 20gb limit. It's accessible from any device with Internet and it backs up photos and videos at same resolution.
