More about iCloud Photo Library:
I don't use iCloud Photo Library. I store most of my photos in cloud based apps like Box,Dropbox and OneDrive. iCloud Photo Library takes too much of the iCloud storage space. I only use iCloud to back up what is currently on my phone. I do have a few photo on iCloud Photo Sharing. But not many.
