I had the 50GB storage program from ICloud and i wanna downgrade. My photos cover 16GB in ICloud and in order to go back to the free version (5GB) i need to remove some of my photos from ICloud. I wanna download all these photos in my phone or laptop, but it doesnt seem possible to choose all photos and download them, but 1 by 1!!! This is going to take ages! Any ideas?

Do you wanna downgrade because of cost or anything else?! It’s only £0.79 per month! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Apple intentionally designed the iCloud interface to make it as difficult as possible to move multiple items off of iCloud at a time for this very reason. You can delete entire folders easily, but not transfer them off iCloud in a single action. They did this to trap you! iCloud is kinda a horrible way to store photos online.

I think the photos app on a Mac will let you also. But yes the browser way works
