Let me see if I can explain this clearly.
On my Photos app(on icloud and Photos) I have about 20 ALBUMS. I only want to share ONE album on my iphone6.I know how to do that and it works, EXCEPT NOT ALL PICTURE FROM THAT ALBUM GO TO MY PHONE.
For example I have 74 photos in my album on Photos app but only 40 go to my phone.How do I make all 74 go over?
I have been trying for weeks, both from Photos app and my iCloud photos.ALL are there on imac in both places, but there is NO ALBUM marked with ceramics for one, for another when I do find them all scattered by date, they are still not all there.I need this album on my iphone6 to show my students.I hate the new lay out of Photos on my iphone6.
Does any of this make sense and can you give me a very simple answer to follow.
Right now on my phone, 26 photos of the 74 in album only show up on 'HOME'. I HATE HATE HATE how this was changed.I want to just click on 'options' on itunes and click the album I want on my phone and I want ALL pictures in there.There are actually NO ALBUMS per say on my phone.
The photos only show up under PLACES or DATES.I am so confused.
I even tried airdrop and got no where. PLEASE HELP.
Everytime I come here one of you can solve my problem:'(.Anyway to get the old layout back, but mostly how to transfer my CERAMICS album in its entirety.

It sounds like you're doing it correct. Are you sure there is enough space on your iPhone 6 to accommodate all 74 Photos?

Yes I have gobs of space,I just dont understand why they wont all go over. Thats all I use my phone space fpr is a couple of apps and pictures to teach my students with. I have over 3000 on iCloud, but only want the one folder in its entirety.

What are the OS versions for both devices? Your iMac specs say you are using macOS 10.10 on it, and you didn't specify for the iPhone.

I am still having this problem, I needed a photo today to show my students in my 'ceramics' folder'. On photos and icloud,the albums are complete,however when I go to itunes and select this: 27026 The album on my phone only has half of the photos in the album.
It doesn't matter if I sync with USB or wireless, all of my albums are only half full. I do not want all 3000 plus pictures on my phone,I want to choose the albums only. Yes I have the latest OS on both my imac and iphone.
PLEASE HELP.

@royalpei

I sympathise with your frustration, and I certainly don't want to add to it.

You appear to be doing everything correctly.

My suggestion is that you try a different method - AirDrop - for example.

In the link below is an article detailing just about every way there is of getting pictures from your Mac to your iDevice. At the beginning of the article, you may/may-not need to click on the link: "How to use AirDrop to transfer photos from your Mac to your iPhone or iPad".

The article includes the iTunes method you are currently using - just in case.....

Just to rule something out - are all the photos the same format? i.e. ar they all jpegs, etc?

You know I never checked that, BUT I would think they would be if all taken with my iphone 6. Thanks,I'll give it a shot.
I just checked only 2 and one was .jpg the other .jpeg could this be a problem? Wow would love it if it were that simple as to change the format :Mischievous:

Well all pictures with the problem do have both formats, .jpg on top and .jpeg on bottom (of info.) I need more time to play with it.

Sadly that did not work...................any other ideas? It happens in every folder, but I really only care about this one.

AirDrop is usually available under the Share icon, the square with up arrow coming out of it?

It does not exist on my icloud photos.Only two options, e-mail or Facebook.
OK it is on my photo program.I will try it.

Which iPhone do you have and what version of iOS is it running? I have an iPhone 7+ running iOS 10.3.3 and "Air Drop" is located in my Control Center which I can access by swiping up from the bottom of my screen.

You should be able to sync those photos by using iTunes. Just attach your iPhone to your MacBook Pro, open iTunes and sync the photos. If you have enough room on your phone there should be no problem.

Thats my problem.I have 117 photos in particular folder, but it only syncs with half of them to my phone through itunes.
I did however FINALLY figure out how to get all 117 through airdrop.Only thing I dont like is they went into my camera roll instead of a separate folder.

When you update to iOS 11 you should be able to move them from the camera roll to the photos folder. Of course that's going to depend on which iPhone you have since not all iPhones will be able to take advantage of the new features of iOS 11.

where is 'airdrop on my phone?

As our Admin said:

Swipe up from the bottom of your iPhone. You will see this:

27038

Tap on AirDrop: Receiving

This will open a new field, as shown here:

27039

I suggest you select "Everyone".

Then you should be ready to go.

The exact details I posted above in this link: https://www.imore.com/heres-how-copy...d-ipad#airdrop

Good luck!

Playing with the Photo and Camera settings on my iPhone, I find that if I set iCloud Photo Library to "On" that I get a message saying "Photos Synced from iTunes will be Removed" and "Syncing photos via iTunes is not supported when iCloud Photo Library is turned on"

Could it be that this is your problem?

If this option is set to "On", what happens if you set it to "Off"? Are all your photos then displayed?

I really appreciate all of your help, I finally got airdrop to work, only it put all of the pictures I sent into camera roll :( I will work around it somehow).
I sent a picture of how I am set up in Itunes, I dont want ALL 3-4,000 pictures, too hard to find what I want at a glance.So I just have this 27040 set up.The problem as stated waaaaay back is that ALL folders show on my phone, but only HALF (or so) pictures are in there.They are all jpeg,so I have no idea

did you try my suggestion above?

yours is exactly as I have my iTunes set up to sync, but if I turn iCloud Library "on" on my phone, I lose the images

I truly am sorry to be so dense, but when I turn icloud images 'on',I get all of them on my phone? What am I doing wrong.

I don't think you are doing anything wrong and certainly not being dense :-)

My photos are set up exactly like yours - to sync selected albums via iTunes. I only have one album synced that way.

If, however, on my iPhone settings I set iCloud Photo Library to "On" I lose the contents of the synced album. I don't know why this happens but suggested you try it just in case it yielded the same results for you - i.e. you had iCloud Library set to "on" and it was causing your missing images and that by setting it to "off" might make your images re-appear if you re-sync them. It seems in your case that this is not the cause.

Back to the drawing board....

Sad, but true :( I wish I could resolve it, I have done as you suggested previously and it did not work.
It is so frustrating.
