“Hello, My iCloud storage is full, as all my photos and videos are in my iCloud, and I down know how to get them from there into my Mac desktop computer. How do I download the pictures on my computer and Stop them going to my iCloud. Thank You”
Just like the Apple user reported, when your iCloud storage is full, you may need to download photos from iCloud to your Mac computer, to free up more available space. But how can you make it? Since iCloud won’t allow you to look at backup details and select just pictures to extract. Therefore, in this post, we introduce you one comprehensive backup extractor, iOS Data Recovery to help you easily export images from iCloud backup to your Mac, iMac or MacBook.
With iOS Data Recovery, you are able to check the specific contents in your iCloud backup and pick up your desired photos to download. Besides, it enables you to extract many kinds of pictures, such as Camera Roll photos, pictures in Messages or Notes attachments, and images in other apps on your iDevice. And now, you can install this tool on your Mac computer, and start your downloading progress by following the 4 steps below.
Step 1. Launch this app and select “Recover from iCloud”.
Step 2. Click “Next” button, enter your Apple ID and pass code to log into iCloud account to scan your backups.
Step 3. After scan, there is a list of iCloud backups that you previously made for your iPhone, iPad and iPod, with the info of date and size. You can choose a relevant one based on the details and click “Download” icon. After the downloading ends, click the right arrow to proceed.
Step 4. On the left side, choose “Photos” to view your pictures, select which one to export, and download them to your Mac by clicking “To Computer”.
Note: If you find some photos are not in iCloud backup, you can go to iCloud.com and try to find them, because if you turn on iCloud Photo Library on your iOS device, your pictures will be automatically uploaded to iCloud.com, so iCloud may don’t backup them to avoid duplication.
iOS Data Recovery is qualified for downloading photos as well other data and files like messages, Whatsapp chat history and so on from iCloud backup to Mac. Of course, if you ever backed up your pictures to iTunes, it is also able to export them from iTunes backup files to your Mac computer. So why not download it now to give it a try?
