I can’t move photos taken on iPhone 6s to my iPad or my husband’s iPad or our iMac (el capitan).

    It depends. Are you using iCloud Photo Library? If so, then all of your photos will be shared on all of your devices without doing anything. That will be YOUR devices, so the photos you take on your iPhone will appear on your iPad and vice-versa. But they won’t be on your husband’s iPad because he would presumably have his own iCloud Photo Library. This is the best way to do it.
    Otherwise, you can sync your iPhone and iPad to your Mac, transferring your photos to your Mac’s Photos app. Then when you sync you would choose to have photos sync from your Photos collection to your iPad and iPhone. This is a setting in iTunes. This is the old-fashioned way of doing it, separating your “camera roll” (new pictures you take) with your photo library. This is how it has worked since the first iPhone and you can still do it, but it seems very backward now that we have iCloud Photo Library.

    I presume syncing would be with a cable. I’m leary of iCloud because without internet there isn’t iCloud? Is there an app not using iCloud but wireless?

    Margaret: Wifi syncing has been available in iTunes for years. But that is just ike the cable. iCloud requires the Internet, right. But you usually keep full versions of all your photos on your Mac, and then optimized versions are synced (automatically) to your other devices. So depending on space on your devices you can then see your photos even when you are offline. Of course doing it with old-fashioned iTunes syncing requires you have the space too.

    I have been using an app called PhotoSync with great success. It can be installed on iOS and also OS X. It uses wifi to transfer images between devices. Simple to use, just drag and drop. What I like is that I can select specific images I want to be shared. The devices don’t need to share an Apple ID. Just need the app.

    I should correct the term “drag and drop” as the process uses a selection process, but very simple. Not drag and drop, per se
