I need help with a problem that I have been searching for an answer for quite some time that pertains to photos. I'm sure I'm not the only one to ask but I can't find an answer anywhere in the Apple support pages. The basic issue is that I take a lot of photos and want them backed up to the cloud, so far this is ok. The thing I want to do is have them backed up to the cloud AND my iMac, I but want them off my iPhone and iPad to have more available storage. When I try to erase it says that it will be deleted from all devices which is not what I want. This has been driving me nuts for a long time and the only thing I can think off is quit paying apple for iCloud and just use Amazon to store everything. I rather avoid this since I just rather have everything tied together on one ecosystem.
