Apple Updates iPhoto and Aperture with Shared Photo Streams

Posted on September 19, 2012 by

A new feature in iOS 6 is the ability to create Shared Photo Streams. Shared Photo Streams lets you share a photo album with friends and family. When someone subscribes to your Shared Photo Stream, they can comment and “like” your images, similar to Instagram.

This is a much welcomed feature to those of us who used to share photos using MobileMe Gallery. Like MobileMe Gallery, you can share your photos on the web by turning on the Public Website feature in a Shared Photo Stream. But I do wish Apple would bring back the ability to password protect the gallery. But overall, this is a nice improvement and works great.

What’s new in iPhoto 9.4:

  • Adds support for Shared Photo Streams on OS X Mountain Lion
  • Comments can now be added to photos after publishing them to Facebook
  • New card and calendar themes have been added
  • A new File menu command can be used to open the current photo library in Aperture (if installed)
  • Includes performance and stability improvements
Direct link for non-App Store version.
