    have an idea.

    Do a backup

    Re enable iCloud photo library and then delete all the photos.

    Restore from backup.

    Thoughts?

    I would do it but I am content with using iCloud photo library.

    Just upgraded from beta 2 to beta 3 and my photos are completely messed up. My iCloud photo library has shrunk from 10.3 gb to 4.6 gb. Only about half of the photos are showing up on my other devices even after a day of syncing. I have about 10.3 gb of photos and videos on my phone (Thats what it says under usage in settings) but now when I look at my backup size it keeps growing and it is at 19 gb of just photos and video. Please help me I cannot figure this out

    If you didn't create a discrete back up of pictures before putting beta software on your personal device...

    ...that would have been a good idea.

    Everything is all backed up, I'm not worried about losing anything, just frustrating I can't seem to get it to work. I have over 10 gb of photos and video and my iCloud photo library is stuck at 4.6 gb after syncing all day.
