1 Upload from iOS

Us­ing your iOS de­vice, take a photo. Next, connect your de­vice to a Wi-Fi net­work. That’s it – your de­vice will upload the photo you took to iCloud. You can con­firm this is done in Set­tings > iCloud > Pho­tos, which shows a count of how many up­loads are pending.

2 Upload burst pho­tos

All shots in a burst photo (where, on a re­cent iOS de­vice, you hold down the shut­ter re­lease to take sev­eral pho­tos and then let iOS pick the best) are up­loaded by de­fault. To save space in iCloud, turn off Upload Burst Pho­tos so only shots marked as favourites are up­loaded.

3 With other cam­eras

If you use an­other type of cam­era, don’t worry – pic­tures you im­port to your Mac’s photo li­brary will be up­loaded to the on­line one, too. Af­ter im­port­ing, open Pho­tos’ pref­er­ences and click iCloud if you want to mon­i­tor the progress of the upload, or if you want to post­pone it.
