Tutorial Description

This week's show turns up some unexpected good news about the Shared Photo Stream feature, included as part of your iCloud account.

Shared Photo Streams are a brilliant idea, but most people feel nervous due to the highly publicised limits for Photo Streams - only the last 30 days and a maximum of 1000 photos.

Did you realise that these limits are only for your Personal Photo Stream?

The limits for Shared Photos Streams are significantly higher... incredibly higher in fact!

This special episode brings you up to date with the current limits surrounding Shared Photo Streams - I guarantee you'll be amazed!

This is the best explanation I've seen about the relationships between My Photo Stream, Shared Photo Streams and limits (number of photos, length of storage, and uploading limits).

Great coverage of Shared Photo Streams, Don. One important caveat to add is that, as far as I can tell, photos don't get stored at the full resolution in the Shared Photo Streams. For onscreen viewing this likely isn't an issue, but if people are relying on these streams for backup or printing it becomes an important consideration.
