iPhoto for iOS (iPad): Share your web journal as a webpage

Share your web journal as a webpage

If you have a free iCloud account, you can share your web journal by publishing it as a webpage. For each journal you publish, iPhoto creates a unique web address that you can share with others. iPhoto can also create a home page listing some or all of your journals; visitors can use the home page to view any journals you add to it.

You can view your published web journals on any devices that are connected to the Internet and set up to work with iCloud. You can edit a web journal only with the device you used to create it. For example, if you create a journal on your iPhone and publish to iCloud, you can view your journal in iPhoto on your iPad, but you can change the journal only using your iPhone.

You can also export your web journal to iTunes as a folder of files, which you can upload to a web server.
