Photos for Mac

Uploading from Photos Library Stored on External Drive to iCloud

Hello. I use an external drive to store my Photos library, and have been attempting to upload this library to my iCloud account for a couple days now. The iCloud status bar has been proceeding slowly, and (after two days) it says I've uploaded 35.42 GB out of 194.26 GB so far. However, when I check Photos in iCloud, I don't see any of the photos I've been supposedly uploading.

Any ideas for what's happening here? I have enabled "My Photo Stream" and have disabled "Importing: Copy items to the photos library" (because I want to leave these photos on the external drive and do not want to save copies of these photos to my MacBook Air's HD).

Many thanks in advance for any suggestions/advice.
