iOS 16: How to Create an iCloud Shared Photo Library

Apple has made it easier to share images with your friends and family by introducing an iCloud Shared Photo Library in iOS 16. To find out how it functions and how to utilize it, keep reading.

With iOS 16's new iCloud Shared Photo Library feature, you can now make a shared library and invite anybody with an Apple device to browse the photographs, upload photos to the library, and modify the photos inside, including selecting their favorite shots and adding descriptions. There are no restrictions and everyone has access to everything.

A shared library may be created with ease. From your personal iCloud Photo Library, you can pick the pictures you wish to add to the Shared Library. You can then examine the material you've contributed to the Library before deciding whether or not to share it.

After upgrading to iOS 16, you may either set one up later via Settings or through the pop-up screen that displays the first time you launch the Photos app. The procedures for taking the latter path are listed below.

  1. Open the Settings app on your iPhone or iPad.
  2. Scroll down and tap Photos.
  3. Under "Library," tap Shared Library.1create-icloud-shared-library-ios
  4. Tap Get Started.
  5. You can add up to five more participants by tapping Add Participants, after which you should hit Next. As an alternative, choose Add Later.2create-icloud-shared-library-ios
  6. Select one of the following to decide which current images and movies to transfer from your personal library to the shared library: Each of My Photographs and Videos Pick based on People, Date, or Select manually. Then choose Next.
  7. Choose to preview the shared library or to skip it.
  8. To send an iMessage invitation to your guests, press Invite through Messages. If you'd rather use an other method, tap Share Link.3create-icloud-shared-library-ios
  9. Opt to share photos from your camera Automatically or Manually.
  10. Tap Done to finish setting up the Shared Library.4create-icloud-shared-library-ios

Once your Shared Library is operational, it will be featured in the Photos area of the Settings app. From here, you can invite new users, enable or disable Shared Library Suggestions, and decide whether or not photographs taken with your iPhone's camera are shared. Additionally, you may turn on or off deletion notifications.

If you don't have an iPhone or iPad, you may also build an iCloud Shared Photo Library on a Mac running the macOS Ventura operating system. Open the Photos app, choose Settings, and then select Start Setup to create a Shared Library.
