    A command-line tool to download photos from iCloud

    As an idiot, I needed a lot of help figuring out how to download a local copy of my iCloud Photos to my Synology. I had heard of a command line tool called icloudpd that did this, but unfortunately I lack any knowledge or skills when it comes to using such tools.
