Can someone explain how photos and icloud photo library works in simple terms and what has changed in iOS 8? I know i used to just click "photos" and it would store my photos in the cloud. Now it seems I have all sorts of options for using iCloud photos beta and downloading and saving originals and some other stuff. I'm thinking I probably will just save them on my phone and save them manually onto my MBA. edit to add: and what is this iPhoto for iOS option? is that to move stuff from my mac to my iPhone? Apple really went out of their way to make this confusing. I didn't even get into my questions about iCloud Drive!
