    Hi all,

    Everytime I transfer my Photos shot with my normal camera (SLR) on my Mac (about 200-300 pictures) these will also display in my iPhone photo libary, with no chance to filter these Photos away from my normal iPhone camera libary.

    How can I get my iPhone photo libary only to display my iPhone pictures, with iCloud activated on both devices.

    Turn off iCloud library. If photostream is activated, it will still upload to your iCloud Library.

    Correct.

    The work around is to set the storage location to your iCloud Drive folder. You still get a backup but without the photos transferring back to your computer.

    This is what the "Hide" feature is for. It hides photos from your "moments", "years", etc., but not in your album views.

    Select all the photos you want to hide, then open the Share Sheet. Click "Hide".
