When my iPhone 5c is connected via lightning cable the photos are showing up on one of my macs - which has El Capitan. The photos do not show up on another one that has High Sierra (and it did not show up earlier when that computer was on Sierra either).

Here is what is available:

What configuration is needed to get the photos tab?

  • Is iCloud Photo Library is turned on? – Pratik May 19 '18 at 11:56
  • iCloud photos is enabled. Is that what you are talking about? – javadba May 19 '18 at 12:08

You have to disable icloud streaming photo on settings, otherwise you cannot see the photo menu below others. After disabling it you will be able to see all folders of photo

  • Please show or describe where is that setting. If it is on iPad then why is it working on the other mac to see the photos? – javadba May 21 '18 at 14:21
