Set Up iCloud’s Photo Stream Feature to Work with Your New iPad
If you’ll be using your new iPad in conjunction with a Wi-Fi Internet connection, you should also set up the iCloud Photo Stream feature. When turned on, any photos you add to iPhoto ’11 on your Mac, take using the cameras built into your iPad or iPad, or import into your iOS mobile device, for example, will be automatically uploaded to your iCloud Photo Stream.
The Photo Stream will hold up to 1,000 of your most recently shot images for up to 30 days. While a digital photo is part of your Photo Stream, you can access it (wirelessly) from any iOS mobile device using the Photos or iPhoto app, as well as from any Mac running iPhoto ’11, and from your Apple TV device. Thus, your digital images are readily accessible whenever or wherever you want to view them.
iCloud’s Photo Stream must be turned on initially from within the new iPad’s Settings app. Once again, launch Settings, select the iCloud option, and then turn ON the virtual switch that’s associated with the Photo Stream option.
As you access your Photo Stream from the Photos app, you can then tap on the Share icon, select one or more images from the Photo Stream and save them on your tablet, share them with others via Email or Message, print the images using the iPad’s AirPrint feature, or delete them from your Photo Stream altogether. Any changes you make to your Photo Stream from your iPad (or any computer or iOS device) will be reflected, almost instantly, on all other computers and devices connected to the same iCloud account.
