Shared Photo Streams on Your Third-Generation iPad
An impressive aptly named solution called Shared Photo Streams arrived on the iPad with iOS 6 (and a bit earlier on Macs running OS X Mountain Lion). The feature lets you share pictures with other folks and lets you in kind subscribe to the shared photo streams that they make available to you.
The Photo Streams feature that came with earlier versions of the iPad is a generally terrific and hassle-free way for you to make sure the pictures you’ve shot end up on your devices without you fretting about how they land there.
With Shared Photo Streams, Apple in its infinite wisdom recognizes that you also might want to share your best images with friends and family and have those pictures automatically show up on those people’s devices.
Tap Settings on your Home Screen.
Tap Photos & Camera on the left side of the screen.
Tap the Shared Photo Streams option so that On is showing.
Open the Photos app and choose the photos you want to share in a Shared Photo Stream.
Tap the Share button and tap the Photo Stream option in the Share dialog that appears.
Take note of some of your other options here: Sharing via Mail, Twitter, and Facebook.
