    Honestly, is it just me, or is iCloud Photos on iOS (iPhone 6s Plus & iPad Air II), just the worst invention?

    I have around 3.5GB of photos. And, in review, most of them are duplicates. I certainly didn't take duplicates. But, in looking in iCloud, there are plenty of duplicates. Very frustrating. I tried turning iCloud 'off', and then back on again, and it appears, I'd need to wait 29 days plus, prior to turning it back on. Failing to do so, and all the photos I'd deleted, return to my iPhone and iPad.

    Currently, I'm in the process of testing Google Photos. One down side I see already, I can't take a photo, and merely 'store' it in a folder in Google Photos. Unless in due course, it will sync to Google Photos?

    Anyway, all this to ask, what Photo application local and cloud based, are you using?

    I'm using iCloud Photo Library and it's working great! I don't see any duplicates on my part.

    Maybe you don't understand iCloud and photos.
    iCloud is not a storage solution. It's a back up option. It backs up what is currently on your device. That's it. It's not like Dropbox.
