    I recently set up iCloud Photo Library and got everything synced. Right after I noticed the photo app added 'items' to the total at the bottom. Does anyone know what these items are?

    Yeah I believe panoramas & slo-mo count as photo and video and I have way more than 8 screenshots. Scrolling through and I'm not sure what wouldn't be counted as photo or video.

    Gifs might be possible. Although I'm not sure how I could find one to see.

    Edit: Saved a gif image through GifIT and the 8 items didn't change. Gifs fall under photos.

    Your iPhone might not have everything from the photo library downloaded. I had a similar issue and called apple. They said that that number might not be accurate until all the photos are downloaded to the device or from the device to the cloud. The data transfer is only active while the phone is plugged in and on standby. When my photos all downloaded to my iPhone 6plus the number was again accurate.
    Does that make any sense?

    Go to your usage in settings and check how much data you have stored on the device. Compare this number to the actual amount of data that is on iCloud. If these numbers do not match, it is probably because the data hasn't all transferred to the device, or from device to iCloud.....

    I'll check tonight and compare numbers with my photo library on the Mac.

    Just checked. The "items" were pdf files that had somehow worked into the photo library. I deleted those on the Mac and the 'items' disappeared on the iPhone.

    I really like the iCloud library. I am not crazy about having to pay for iCloud storage, but it is what it is. Hope you got it all figured out. Did you have some pdf files from a scanner app, maybe?

    Any idea on how the PDFs got in there in the first place?
    They must have been in the same folder as my photos. Not sure but I've deleted them now.

    I do have the 'Genius Scan' app so it's possible they were scanned.
