    I wanted to know if we can use the Photo App without using the Cloud. Because the only other way it's to go to the computeur App.

    Thanks.

    The Photos app works in tandem with iOS and macOS Photos, and works very well that way. In what other way were you expecting to use it?

    It doesn't work for me using iCloud photos unless I create a shared folder. The default all photos shows nothing.

    Sadness.

    You don't need to use iCloud at all. Just open iTunes and in the File menu enable How Sharing... then in that same menu select the Photos you want to share. Then on the ATV in that orange Computer icon you can drill down to your Mac then photos and see all your photos.

    The Mac needs to be on with iTunes running to do this.
