Cleaning Up My iCloud Photo Storage jayeless.net

@jayeless I reckon you’ve hit a problem everyone will have at some point!

@jayeless I can’t seem to find the courage to delete some photos as well. Multiple shots from the same situation, I’ve edited the one I like best, and still can’t delete the others. Some faces turned out wrong, but I still like the look at them, at the different ways movieStar acted on that particular day. I have thousands and thousands of those.

Also, already upgraded storage, a long time ago, and it’s one monthly bill I can’t find a way to stop paying.

@jayeless Not an easy thing to do... as @maique said, I have countless photos about the same scene and cannot find the courage to delete the worst one. iOS 16 brings the Merge feature to merge identical images which could help a bit, though.

@maique @numericcitizen Glad I'm not the only one struggling with this, because I had been trying to convince myself I was being silly and it's no big deal 😅 Outright identical images I felt OK to delete, but the "bad" shots out of a series… harder.

@jayeless I can’t say I’ve faced this problem, not just because I still have enough storage but that my photos aren’t exactly quality. I can totally understand the debate though, and hopefully when I get better at photography I may end up facing the same dilemma.

@pimoore I wouldn't say I'm a great photographer either; I'm mostly clearing out outright unfocused shots (or duplicates) 😅 And despite this, on pCloud where I have more storage, I keep everything…
