Most people probably won't have these issues, but power users might, including some here... The problem is that I can't use everything I want to use without having conflicts or frustrating workflow problems when it comes to capturing and managing photos & videos workflow. Here are some examples: 1) I want to be able to use both iCloud Photo Library and Google Photos backup, but there are just too many issues if you do. For one, Google Photos starts uploading thousands of photos once I turn on iCloud Photo Library on my iPhone, even though these are already backed up from previous devices (iOS and Android). This not only wastes bandwidth, but it takes FOREVER and will have to be done every time change phones if you use iCloud Photo Library. 2) If I have "Optimize Storage" turned on (which I have to do because of having so many photos in iCloud Photo Library), it creates duplicates in Google Photos (some at full resolution and some at the reduced resolution that the iPhone downloads). I thought it was supposed to request the full version from iCloud before uploading to Google Photos, but it is not doing that. It's uploading the smaller optimized version and makes a duplicate in my Google Photos library. 3) However, if I turn off iCloud Photo Library and just use Google Photos, then I lose out on the features that are specific to Apple in my library. For example, Live Photos won't back up (just the single photo backs up). Also, slow-motion videos don't remember the points I've selected for slow motion... Google Photos just uploads the regular video at the higher frame rate without slow motion. 4) I really wanted to use Live Photos, but there are a couple of other issues that is prompting me to just turn it off. One is that frame rate is just too choppy. Secondly, when I transfer photos from my iPhone to Lightroom, it transfers them as JPG and MOV files, which I guess is okay but then I have all of these little 3 seconds MOV files in my PC library. Obviously Lightroom can't do Live Photos, so the little MOV files are just wasting space and creating workflow issues. If I had them in iCloud Photo Library, I can see the Live Photos on my Mac or phone, but then I have to deal with the Google Photos issue. There just isn't a good workflow that satisfies what I want to do. I want to have my photos and videos backed up to both iCloud and Google Photos, as well as importing them into Lightroom once in a while for PC backup. Usually when I do that, I would just wipe my photos and videos from my phone to free up space. But if I try to use iCloud Photo Library, it messes that workflow up entirely. The best method I have right now is just to turn off iCloud Library and use Google Photos for online backup. Then just transfer the photos and videos to Lightroom once in a while and clear my phone. At least Google Photos doesn't make you download ALL of your library to your phone. So this workflow works out okay, especially if I jump back and forth between iOS and Android. But it means I really have to just ignore the Apple photos features like Live Photos. How are you guys handling photos and videos workflow?
