Lesson 7. Using iCloud with Your Photos

Lesson 7. Using iCloud with Your Photos

In this lesson, you learn how to take advantage of iCloud’s Photo Stream to automatically have all of your photos on multiple devices.

Understanding Photo Stream

If you have more than one device with which you take, store, edit, or view photos, you’ll probably find that Photo Stream is one of iCloud’s most useful features. Photo Stream stores your photos in the cloud so that you can access them on any device. The great news is that this happens automatically; you don’t have to worry about syncing your photos among your devices because Photo Stream handles this for you.

Each of your devices can add photos to your Photo Stream (sender) and download photos from the Photo Stream (receiver). (Note that an Apple TV can only receive photos from Photo Stream.) For example, you can take photos with your iPhone; the photos you take are automatically uploaded to your cloud. Those photos are then automatically downloaded, via Photo Stream, to all your devices on which Photo Stream is enabled (see Figure 7.1). You don’t have to sync any of the devices to work with your photos; Photo Stream brings photos to and receives photos from each device automatically.
