If iCloud syncs badly or too slowly your photos, try this!

Part 1

iCloud synchronization too slow

With MacOS 10.14 Mojave, the most annoying thing is that iCloud doesn't always sync fast and correctly enough: photos can take hours or days to appear on the Mac as an exact reflection of the Photo Library on iCloud.

So how do I restart the iCloud synchronization?

Start by logging out of the iCloud account and then log back in.

  1. Select Apple Menu > System Preferences.
  2. Select iCloud > Log Off

Then log back into your account, and see what happens then in Photos.

 

Part 2

On top of all this, you should stop two iCloud related processes in Activity monitorIf the iCloud is not synchronized, it will restart the iCloud synchronization:

Go to the Launchpad > Activity monitor (or in the Utilities(in the Applications folder, under the Applications folder)

  1. Type in "cloudd"in the search bar above
  2. Click on the big button (X) Which is at the top left of the window

Repeat the same steps for the process "bird“.

Reboot the Mac and see if anything is moving on the Photos or iCloud sync side.

Moreover, since the synchronization ofiMessages has been added to macOS Mojave it's also possible that it doesn't work very well: to solve this problem, you need to stop and restart the process, simply disable, then re-enable iMessages synchronization via iCloud to get everything back in order.

Part 3

If you are having problems with the Photo Library (Photo Library 1) on your Mac and you have located all your photos, either in iCloud or on the Mac in other folders outside of this library, you can also :

Step 1: Create a new, blank library and connect it to iCloud

  1. open Photos with the ALT-OPTION key pressed to create a new empty photo library on the mac, name it Photo Library 2
  2. go to Photo Preferences and click on System Library
  3. the iCloud Photos will come down in there by themselves... with time.
  4. close the new Photo Library 2 thus created.

Step 2: delete the old library (Photo Library 1) Photos of the Mac because it is then useless and takes up spaceAt the end, a new library is connected to iCloud and will receive the photos from this space, then it's up to you to add what you want.

 

Since the synchronization ofiMessages has been added to macOS Mojave it's also possible that it doesn't work very well: to solve this problem, you need to stop and restart the process, simply disable, then re-enable iMessages synchronization via iCloud to get everything back in order.

Don't forget that the iCloud Message Synchro also requires the iPhone to be plugged into the power supply at a certain time and be connected via wifi .
