I changed my settings so only photos on my iMac are uploaded to the cloud. Since I regularly sync with the cable to my iMac, that seemed appropriate. But when I turned off the processes to up or download from the cloud on my iPhone and iPad, I had some problems getting everything clean. I won't go through all the steps, but I may have finally gotten that straight (or at least close), but somewhere along the line, in iTunes my "Other" category has jumped way up to over 15 gb. Along with this, when look at the other things (video, apps, etc) "Photos" doesn't show up at all though I can see them on my devices. When I do a sync, "Photos" does show up while it is syncing, but then immediately disappears. I tried, on my phone, to restore as new and then restored the backup, but the same thing is happening. Also, since I switched my devices back to syncing photos via my iMac, I see that when I "select" some, the trash can is grayed out. Don't know if there is any connection with these different problems. Could really use some help!
