Please be aware that if you have enabled iPhoto library, you may need to open the settings of the application, not the search summary. Please contact us if you need assistance.

There is also an iCloud Photo Library which stores every photo and video you take and keeps them up to date on all your devices. Any edits you make are automatically updated everywhere.  If you have enabled iCloud Photo Library, or turned on Optimize Storage on your Mac, some of your photos and videos may be stored in iCloud.  Currently, iCloud files can only be backed up by the Picture Keeper Connect device through your iPad or iPhone.  This is a restriction put in place by Apple.  Please check this article on how to get started backing up your iCloud pictures.
