How To Use the New iCloud Shared Photo Library

You can now have a shared photo library between you and other members of your family. Each person can edit and manage the photos in the library and you can view photos in it alongside photos in your own personal library.

    Another great video, thanks
    On my Mac I have a large Photo Library - about 300GB run from a separate SSD and backed up to a 2TB cloud service. I have the 200GB iCloud package but been reluctant to move up to the next level as never had a need. However, I like the idea of Shared Photo Library but if I enable iCloud to use Photos (which I need to do to use the Shared Photo Library feature) this will use up all my storage. Is there any way round this or is 2TB icloud storage the only option?

    David: You'd need to up your storage, yes. No way around that. You can't fit 300GB into a 200GB space.

    Excellent video. Great pacing. Only thing I'm not clear on is Favorites and the Shared Library. Are ALL (even past) Favorited photos automatically shared, or just from now on, or something else? And it this configurable?

    Paul: "Favorites" is a tag, essentially. Anything tagged as a favorite and is in the Shared Library will show up for everyone as tagged a favorite in their Shared Library.

    Hi Gary, I have combined my and my wife's photos about 10 days ago. It showed about 10 duplicates but no more? I am certain there are at least 200 duplicates. Can't figure out what I have done wrong. I am choosing both libraries but doesn't seem to matter...

    Randy: Perhaps you overestimated. Or, maybe you just haven't waited long enough for it to find them?
