    Hi

    Is there any way to download just one photo you want from your iCloud directly to iPhone? I dont want to download my entire old photo library and dont have PC with me.

    Open iCloud,go to photos in iCloud,mark your photo,then copy it to camera roll.

    I meant internal search on your device,but if you want a specific app,iCloud drive should work.

    It's not possible to access your photos on an iPhone using the iCloud Drive app, so don't waste your time trying to do that. Unfortunately it's also not possible to just get one photo from your iCloud library. You'd need to enable syncing the iCloud Photo Library and then you can do something with that one photo once your library has synced to the phone.

    It is possible to store photos and screenshots in iCloud Drive,I do that often. And when stored,I can access one at a time withouth syncing everything.

    Can you make a screenshot with your iCloud photos accessing by your iPhone? Blur your photos if its something so private.

    What photo editor do you use? Mine was uploaded to iCloud Drive from pixelmator,not from camera app.

    Well, thats something different. Your photo from the screenshot is in iCloud Drive, i want to access to my photos from “Photos” (Camera Roll backup)

    Ok,I don't use that folder that much,as I almost never use the iPhone camera. Most of my photos are stored in pixelmator,Lightroom or aperture.

    Of course you can save photos in iCloud Drive; you can save any file in there. You cannot access the actual iCloud Photo Library that way.

    I see,well,I don't have much photos in iCloud library,as I prefer iCloud Drive,because as you said,I can store everything there.
