iCloud: View a shared stream on the web

View a shared stream on the web

As the owner of a shared photo stream, you can make it available at a public web address. This allows people who aren’t iCloud users to view your stream. For instructions, see Create a shared stream.

When people access your stream online, they don’t have to log in to see the photos and videos and download the photos. However, they can’t add comments to or “like” specific images.

View a shared stream on the web

  1. Click the link for the shared stream in the invitation email you receive.

  2. Scroll through the photos and videos in the stream, or click one to view it larger.

  3. To use controls for the enlarged photos and videos, move your pointer over the webpage, then do any of the following.

    If controls don’t appear, click the browser window to make sure it’s frontmost.

    • To view a slideshow of the shared stream, click Slideshow at the top of the webpage. To end the show, click Stop Slideshow.

    • To go through the photos and videos manually, click the forward arrow or back arrow on the side of the webpage, or press the Right Arrow or Left Arrow key.

    • To download a photo, click Download at the top of the webpage.

    • To view the photos and videos full screen, click Fullscreen at the top of the webpage. To view them in a window again, click Exit Fullscreen or press Escape.

    • To hide the controls, move your pointer away from the browser window, or hold it still while it’s over the window.
