Part 2: How to selectively transfer a photo album from iPhone/iPad to Mac

However, if you want to transfer a specific photo album from your iPhone/iPad to Mac, you can use iCloud to help you with it. Here are the steps to transfer a photo album from iPhone/iPad to Mac via iCloud.

Notice
With iCloud, you can just sync photo albums from your iPhone/iPad to Mac and it’s could be quite time-consuming to choose all photos. Thus, if you also want to transfer photos in Photo Stream and Photo Library or want to transfer photos all at once, you are recommended to use EaseUS MobiMover Free in Part 1.


Step 1: On your iPhone/iPad, go to Settings > [your name] > iCoud > Photos and toggle on iCloud Photo Library.

Step 2: On your Mac, open a browser and visit iCloud.com.

Step 3: Sign in to iCloud with your Apple ID and password. (The Apple ID and password should be the same as the one you have signed in to iCloud on your iOS device.)

Step 4: Choose Photos and you can see all your photo albums are listed on the left side.

Step 5: Click the Photo Album you want to transfer and choose the photos. (Use Command key for multiple selections.)

Step 6: Tap the Download selected items button to start to download photos from iCloud to your Mac.

By following the steps above, you can transfer photo albums from your iPhone/iPad to your Mac in an indirect way. What's more, you can also download iCloud photos to PC using the similar steps.
