    Photos and iCloud
    This might be a dumb question but...

    Got a new mac. All my photos uploaded to Photos via iCloud.

    Alls good there.

    However, now I'm trying to upload the photos to Shutterfly. I can't. I believe it has something to with the iCloud.

    Does this sound right? Do I have to download the pics from the cloud to the computer some how? And if so, how?

    I don't believe you can upload directly to Shutterfly via iCloud. You probably will need to have those copies on your Mac before uploading to Shutterfly. Have you checked your Photos library to see what it contains?

    I guess what I'm trying to figure out is...

    How to get the pictures in the photo app to be downloaded on to the computer and not just showing up via the cloud.

    Do you have "Photo Stream" turned on?

    If you go into Photos > Preferences (the shortcut for accessing Preferences when in Photos is Command plus comma, that is hold down the Cmd key and press on the comma key).

    Within Preferences, click on iCloud.

    You will see a window, as below. I suggest that you might consider ticking the same boxes as I have. There is a brief explanation against each option.

    See if this helps. Feel free to keep coming back till you are satisfied.

    Would this thread get more responses in the proper forum?

    Had any luck yet?

    If you used the settings in my post #5, your pictures will download to your Mac, as you wanted, whilst still being backed up in the Cloud.

    My Photo Stream is explained for you - it does require that iCloud Photo Library is turned off on all other Devices.
