    Hello can anyone tell me how to view the bursts photos behind the one that is placed on top? I just turned on iCloud Photos (Running latest OS late 2012 iMac). I want to get to the pictures behind the front one when may kids eyes WEREN't actually closed...


    I tried multiple searches and would appreciate any help!

    Select and expand the Burst with the space bar (or double-click) in Photos, and you should see a clickable "Make A Selection..." bar in the top-left.

    Selecting that (it's only clickable, and not obviously-so), you get your burst expanded with frame selection controls.

    Select the ones you want to extract by checking the circle in the lower-right, press done and either 'Cancel', 'Keep Only Selection' or 'Keep Everything'.

    Have fun <s>

    Thank you so much! That Make a selection button is greyed out tough to spot at first. Would you happen to know why all albums are not available on all my devices with iCloud Photo turned on? I'll give sharing it with myself a try but that seems un apple like. Really appreciate the tip! Happy Holidays!

    You're welcome.

    I believe the consensus is that Albums are not directly transferable without a third-party iOS/Mac app (better verify this through searches, yourself).

    My "Personal Jury" is still out on the Photos app, in general <smiles>

    Happy Holidays.
