Sharing Photos With iCloud

With iCloud we can share photos with others. On our devices like iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch we can do this from the Photos app. Let’s open the Photos app and select some photos to share through iCloud. We can share a moment, or we can use the select option to choose the photos we want to share from different moments. In this example, We’ll tap on the select option to select photos from different moments.

If the images are not on the device, we will see a preparing progress box. This means the images are being downloaded to the device.

An iCloud Posting box will open. In this posting box we can add a comment about the photos. This comment will be visible to those that have access to the shared album. The box also selects the last album we used to post images. If this was our first share, then we would be prompted to create an album.

After providing a comment, we’ll need to create a new album to share these photos. To create a new album tap on the Shared Album link.

The same holds true if we begin to type an email address. If the email address is not in our contacts, then we will need to provide all the information. Once we’ve provided all the recipients, tap next.
