    Welcome to iMore!

    Here is a guide that will assist you in doing just what you want. Then put the photos on a flash drive once they are on your Mac.

    On Your Mac:


    1. Go to the photos app.
    2. If you already have pictures in the app that you don't want to upload, move your library file and create a new one. Set the new one as your system photo library by going to Preferences->General->"Use as System Photo Library".
    3. Make sure that Preferences->iCloud->"Download Originals to this Mac" is checked.
    4. Check Preferences->iCloud->"iCloud Photo Library".
    5. Now all your iCloud photos will download.
