So let me see if I understand this correctly. In IOS 8 when you turn on iCloud Photos, it removes any existing Photos you have. It also removes the ability to transfer photos manually from your Mac using iTunes. So basically you are starting all over as far as pictures go on your IOS 8 device. Any new pictures you take are stored in the new iCloud Photos system. Until a Photos app comes out there is no way to transfer old pictures from your Mac to your IOS 8 device. Do I have all this correct? I hate I lost access to all my old wallpaper files that I have accumulated.
