Hey guys, I recently decided to get on board with iCloud and paid for the 20gb storage option, so far, it's been a bit of a disappointment, it's taken days to upload photos from iPhone, still got 2000 photos to do! But that's not the reason for this thread, I just need a little help! On my rMBP it gives me two options, one is to 'download originals to this Mac', this is something I don't want to do. The next option is 'optimise mac storage' which says photos will be stored in the cloud and 'originals will also be stored on this mac if you have enough storage space'. From what I can see one of these boxes must be checked. I don't want to save any photos on my macbook! I thought that was the whole point of the cloud ... I just want it to work, so photos I take on my iPhone will be uploaded to iCloud and when connected to wifi I can see them on my Macbook. Is this not possible? It says my hard drive I have 4.79gb taken from photos, this is a new computer (3 weeks old) and I should have zero photos on the computer really, so I can only think this is from my photos app. Any help here would be appreciated, I only have 128gb ssd, which is all I need, but I obviously can't afford to waste space by storing photos on my macs hard drive.
