    l dont understand how to use it , what l have in the icloud and how to get the photo/videos out off lcloud so l can put them on a usb stick.

    Id look at how to use iCloud since you have photos etc stored there.

    With not having used iCloud i cant direct you but im sure theres a guide on the internet on how to use it or a youtube video.

    If its anything like google drive, dropbox or one drive you open the app and select what you want to upload and choose upload.

    To download you choose to download the photo.

    To view what you have stored use the iCloud app to view them.

    When I am on holiday I often e-mail my better pictures to friends, they are available to me in the "sent" folder in my gmail account. Each free gmail account comes with 15 GB of storage and you can have several. In gmail you can create as many folders and sub folders as you like...

    I'm sure there are better solutions (Drop box? Etc), but I like the simplicity of gmail and I tend to send pictures to friends anyway...

    OP here's some more information on iCloud (via Apple U.K):

    http://www.apple.com/uk/icloud/

    I have one these myself (it was reduced to clear at the Tesco where I work a few months back):

    It's not your credit score that counts, it's your account conduct and credit history.
