Working with Photo Stream
With iCloud’s Photo Stream, devices can automatically upload photos to the cloud. Other devices can automatically download photos from the cloud so you have all your photos available on each device. The Photo Stream has two sides: a sender and receiver. Your iPod touch can be both! Photo applications, such as iPhoto on a Mac, can also access your Photo Stream.
Configuring Your iPod touch to Access the Photo Stream
To connect your iPod touch to your Photo Stream, you need to enable it:
Open the Settings app and tap iCloud.
Tap Photo Stream.
- Slide the switch next to Photo Stream to ON. Your iPod touch immediately downloads any photos available in your Photo Stream. Any photos you take with the iPod touch’s camera will be uploaded automatically.
Accessing Your Photo Stream on Your iPod touch
Accessing photos from the Photo Stream is much like accessing photos in albums:
- Open the Photos app.
- Tap Albums.
- Tap Photo Stream. You see all the photos from your Photo Stream. You can work with them like other photos on your iPod touch.
