I want to take all photos off from any and all Apple clouds, devices, apps, computers-everyrhing!
the only way i can find to do it is one photo at a time.
at this point i hate photos app-it is so difficult to use. you get one setting wrong and you end up with thousands of photos in icloud which is what happened to me apparently.
i just want to get all photos off my machines without having to delete them one at a time

You don't need to completely log out of iCloud to remove photos from iCloud Photo Library. See the following instructions from Get help with your iCloud Photo Library - Apple Support
How do I remove all iCloud Photo Library content from iCloud and my devices?
To turn off your iCloud Photo Library everywhere, follow these steps:
- On your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch:
- If you're using iOS 10.3 or later, go to Settings > [your name] > iCloud > iCloud Storage > Manage Storage > iCloud Photo Library, then select Disable and Delete.
- If you're using iOS 10.2 or earlier, go to Settings > iCloud > Storage > Manage Storage > iCloud Photo Library, then select Disable and Delete.
- On your Mac, go to Apple menu > System Preferences > iCloud. Click Manage, select Photo Library, then select Disable and delete.
