    My wife would like me to put our entire photo library in iCloud so that she can look at everything on her iPhone and iPad. Right now I have a small portion (around 4500 photos and videos) and on my iPhone 8 it says it takes up 555MB for the Photos App PLUS 4.66 GB for the Photo Library.
    Our FULL photo library (that I keep on my iMac) is over 75000 Photos and Videos. So trying to get an idea - from anyone who has a large photo library and stores it all in iCloud Photo Library - how much room does it take up on your iOS devices?

    Thanks. But when I look at that page it says 530MB but if I tap on the listing the see the size of the photo library in addition to the app size.
    Could you check that and tell me how many photos and videos are in your library. Thanks a lot.

    Thanks. But can you also check the actual iPhone storage because that is what I am concerned with as my wife’s devices have less internal memory than mine.

    572.3 MB on my iPhone
    572.3 MB on iCloud

    My photos get auto downloaded to Dropbox, where they're auto saved to both my laptop and desktop hard drives and in the Dropbox cloud (so I technically have 3 backups). I do not keep my photos on my phone, only downloaded wallpapers (31 at this time).
