Great video Todd; but I will still eschew this app. I got weary of Apple deciding how my photos should be organized and how I often had to struggle to find what I wanted, so I use Lightroom and Capture One Pro to manage my photos. Also, I really dislike how iCloud photos are still handled; i.e., if you just take a couple of shots on your iPhone, they get uploaded before you decide if you want them uploaded! That plus the fact that iCloud storage outside the US is really expensive, one can get iCloud photo library bloat really quickly!
A much better alternative to iCloud for iPhone photos is to either use AirDrop to transfer the photos YOU want or an app like Photosync which makes managing YOUR photos much easier. Apple really needs to come up with a better way of sending photos to could more under one's control; I know, how about applying AI THERE???
