    I switched back to Apple after two years, and can't understand a couple of things. Can you help me?
    1) My pictures are in the cloud, but what happens if I delete one or ten from my camera roll once in iCloud?

    2) what's the difference between my pictures stored in iCloud and the Streaming Photos?

    3) I also own a Mac, synced with my iCloud account. I have hundreds of old pictures stored, but I don't want them to be uploaded to iCloud, because don't care and because all my storage would be filled. Can I choose the pictures to be uploaded to iCloud?

    Thank you for your advices.

    If your pics are synced to "iCloud" then if you add or delete a pic from one device, the results will sync to your other device(s). Streaming is more akin to sharing in a sense whereas syncing is keeping data on your configured devices the same. As for choosing what to sync to iCloud from your Mac, the answer is yes.

    When you say "the cloud", do you mean iCloud, or iCloud Photo Library?

    iCloud is for back up of your phone. All your data, photos, app info, Notes, etc. Everything that is currently on your phone. Each time a back up is done it may change, according to what is currently on your phone. iCloud Photo Library is like a storage for photos. I don't use iCloud Photo Library.

    Here's info on iCloud Photo Library:
