Slow Photos sync to iCloud

I just signed up for enough iCloud space that I can sync our 250GB library in Photos.app.

I have a very fast upload connection, but the Photos app is only using it in spurts. I recall years ago that TidBITS had an article that talked about different upload speeds based on how you did things. Is there any trick I try to speed this process up?

Those articles are pretty old, so I’m not sure they’d be applicable anymore, but they’re worth reading:

My general experience has been that making sure the Mac doesn’t sleep overnight and being patient will work in the end, and only the initial upload is an issue.
