    Hello all,
    I am seriously considering using iCloud photo library for my iOS devices cause it seems quite interesting. But how will it work with Mac? I know we will get the new Photos app next year, but how will this app work? Will it be like iPhoto where you can see all the photos you take with your camera and iOS devices, or will it only let you see photos in iCloud? I'm really hoping i can just put all of my photos in the cloud, and then have them automatically downloaded to the Photos app on my MacBook Air, where I can view them in addition to my photos taken with my camera. Anyone have any ideas on how this will work?

    it will work the same as on an iOS device. it downloads resized originals from icloud to your devices resized for that device's screen resolution.
