Syncing between iCloud and my iPhone 12 Pro (now iOS 16.3.1) has always worked flawlessly.
I’d like to continuing using Photos on my iMac’s 27” screen, but my next step is to abandon the iMac and try syncing to my M2 MacBook Air; editing on its 13” screen would be better than on an iPhone, but not as good as on a 27” screen.
Does anyone have any ideas to jumpstart syncing Photos between my iMac and iCloud? (I need a defibrillator.)
This is a long shot, but are your photos stored in the default location (~/Pictures/Photos Library.photoslibrary)?
The reason I ask is that I had a long-term problem syncing my Music playlists that was solved by moving my library from its legacy iTunes location to the default Music location. Since this was non-intuitive, I wonder if something similar could happen with Photos and iCloud.
I just realized that despite my .photoslibrary files being located at the root of ~/Pictures/, maybe they are not considered in the standard location after all because my user directory is NOT on the startup volume.
Is is possible that Libraries must be located on the startup volume in order to sync reliably after exceeding some size threshold?
