How to move Photos from iPhone to iPad using iCloud photo library?
Last Updated :
There are many ways you can transfer or move your iPhone photos to your iPad. If you have set up iCloud photo library on iPhone and iPad, you can upload your photos to that. Setting up iCloud photo library on your iOs device is easy. Once it is set up, transferring your iPhone to iPad becomes a cake walk. Follow the step by step process to upload or transfer your iPhone photos to your iPad using iCloud Photo Library.
Open the Settings app on your iPhone. The iCloud Photo Library is a feature that allows you to upload your entire photo collection to your iCloud account, which allows you to access them from all of your connected devices. - This requires iOS 8.1 or later for both the iPhone and the iPad. - Turning on the iCloud Photo Library will remove any images that have been synced from iTunes.
Select "iCloud" from the menu. This will open a menu allowing you to adjust your iCloud account settings.
Log in with your Apple ID if you aren't already. The iCloud Photo Library requires iCloud, which is accessed through your Apple ID.
Tap the "Photos" option. This will open the Photos settings menu.
Toggle the "iCloud Photo Library Beta" ON. After a moment, your iPhone will display how many photos it is uploading to your iCloud account. - Unlike Photo Streams (see below), this method will count against your available iCloud storage. If you don't have much storage available, you may want to try one of the other methods in this article.
Choose between "Optimize iPhone Storage" and "Download and Keep Originals". With "Optimize", your iPhone will keep smaller-resolution copies of the photos on your phone to save space. If you have "Download and Keep" selected, the original, full-resolution photos will be kept on the device after being uploaded to iCloud.
Connect your iPhone to a wireless network. You will need to be connected to a wireless network to upload the photos to the iCloud Photo Library. Any new photos you take after enabling iCloud Photo Library will be automatically uploaded the next time you connect to a wireless network.
Open the Photos app on your iPad. After uploading the photos to the iCloud Photo Library, you will be able to access them from your iPad's Photos app. - Make sure you are signed in with the same Apple ID on your iPad.
Tap "Albums" and then select "All Photos". This album contains all of the photos that are currently stored in your iCloud Photo Library. When you load this for the first time, it may take a few minutes for all of the photos to appear. - iCloud Photo Library disables the Camera Roll and Photo Stream albums, as all your pictures will be collected in the All Pictures album.
Find the photo you want. You can browse through the All Photos album, or you can tap "Photos" at the bottom and use the dates to find the photo you are looking for.

PicBackMan does exactly what it's supposed to. It's quick and efficient. It runs unobtrusively in the background and has done an excellent job of uploading more than 300GB of photos to 2 different services. After having lost a lot of personal memories to a hard drive crash, it's nice to know that my photos are safe in 2 different places.

LOVE this program! Works better than ANY other program out there that I have found to upload thousands of pictures WITH SUB-FOLDERS to SmugMug!
Thank you so much for what you do! :) #happycustomer
I pointed PicBackMan at a directory structure, and next time I looked - all the photos had uploaded! Pretty cool. I use SmugMug and while I really like it, the process of creating directories in is pretty laborious when you need to make 80+ at a time. This was a breeze. Thank you!
PicBackMan was really easy to setup and has been running for 3 days now backing up all my locally saved photos to Flickr. My photos are really valuable to me so it's great to be able to have them easily backed up to a secure location.
It's AWESOME!! I have tens of thousands of pictures...and they are now successfully uploaded to SmugMug, where they are safely backed up, and I can edit and organize them. If you are hesitating about using PicBackMan, hesitate no longer...try it...and you'll be glad you did!!
I started with the basic plan, went to premium and now on their platinum plan and it's more than worth the price for me. PicBackMan has saved me many tedious hours of effort moving many files between my various cloud and photo site services and my local computers.
I am very satisfied and surprised at the same time with Pic BackMan. The service is very good and useful. I used it to transfer my photos from Dropbox to my Flickr accound. I highly recomment it.
PicBackMan was an answer to many a prayer. How can I get this MASSIVE collection of photos onto a service that cripples uploading? PicBackMan. I uploaded approximately 85,000 photos in less than a month. It would have taken me close to a year to get all of those photos where they needed to go. Nothing short of brilliant.
I have thousands of family photos and it's always been such a pain to upload them to various cloud services for offline storage. Well not anymore! PicBackMan makes backing everything up a complete breeze. I don't know how I ever lived without it!
I was poking around the Internet looking for an easy tool to help me consolidate 15 years of my pictures from Google Photos and Flickr etc - this tool was very easy to use and was painless to setup.
