    Hi all, I'm looking to make the jump onto iCloud for my primary photo storage to free up space on my devices. I currently have over 10,000+ photos & videos all in a windows folder structure. I’ve worked out how to upload the photos into iCloud using the same folder structure, but I can't find a way to download them all to my PC in the same folder structure easily.

    it looks like iCloud photos don’t let you ‘select all’ and you have to manually click each photo to select before downloading. Is there a way I can regularly backup my iCloud photos onto my PC whilst keeping my folder structure intact? Or at the very least a simple way to get a 'dump' of all my photos and copy over to my PC. I just can't bring myself to trust iCloud 100%, I prefer a safety net of a local backup as well.

    Any help/tips would be appreciated

    Thanks for your help, I'll have a look. I wish Apple made it easier / more flexible to manage the photos stored on iCloud
