    If I understand correctly, with iCloud Photo Library turned on on all my devices (iPhone, ipad, mac/Yosemite), any new pictures I take on any of the devices will reside in the library and be viewable from all devices. Is that correct?

    But what about the 3,000 photos I have in iPhoto? How can I get them in the library too?

    And how is iCloud Photo Library different than the Photostream?

    I haven't had a chance to play with it yet, but I think for the last question, photo stream is your last 1000 photos added, and iCloud photo library can be used beyond that (depending on how much iCloud storage you have).

    Early next year, Apple will launch Photos for Yosemite that will integrate with iCloud photo library, then you should be able import all your photos and add them that way. I say should as Apple hasn't released any other details aside from what was said at WWDC.
