You can now create and view shared albums on your PC. Depending on the version of Windows and iCloud for Windows, you can find your shared albums in the iCloud Shared Albums app, File Explorer, or Windows Explorer.
You can view shared albums in the iCloud Shared Albums app. Choose Start menu > iCloud Shared Albums.
From your Album homepage, hit that cloud icon at the bottom and select the shared album from the list that appears. Once that album is open hit the People button at the bottom right. You want to switch on the option that says Public Website. Once you do this you'll get a URL (like a website address) on your screen.
Starting with the release of iOS 12, Apple rebranded this feature as simply Shared Albums. So depending on what iOS you're using, you may see Shared Albums or iCloud Photo Sharing.
On your Windows computer, open Shared Albums. Double-click the shared album you want to find the link to, then click Info in the toolbar. The link is below the subscriber list. If you don't see a link, the album isn't public.
With Shared Albums in the Photos app , you can share photos and videos with just the people you choose. They can also add their own photos, videos, and comments. Shared Albums works with or without iCloud Photos and My Photo Stream.
You can share albums privately, allowing your friends and family to like, comment, or even upload their own photos and videos. Keep reading to learn how you can share your pics with iCloud Photos and to see everything else you can do with this feature.
Anyone that has the shared link will be able to view the album.
Wait about a minute, then click the Options button. Select Shared Albums. Click OK, then click Apply. Open iCloud Photos.
Sharing albums is simple. Go to the settings menu on your phone, select iCloud, then Apps Using iCloud, then Photos, then toggle on iCloud Photo Sharing. Go back to your Photos app and hit that cloud icon again and you'll get a blank page (no problem).
