Not sure which forum this should be in, figured this or the Software one?
Also I did search the forums and couldn’t find my exact issue/concern.
I’m the “Organizer” and my I’m sharing my iCloud with my wife’s Apple ID.
We can share purchases, iCloud Drive storage, etc… but why is there no centralized photo library?
That should at least be an option.
When she uploads all her photos on her iPhone it pops up as “Family” on the iCloud Storage tab and is all grey and you can’t access or see it.
Basically I just want to see any picture/screenshot/video she takes and vice versa.
The only way we’ve been able to accomplish this is to both use my google account and both have the google photos app on our devices so we can see each others photos/videos. The good thing about google is its free, just sucks that everything is condensed, which is fine anyway nice the photos and video all still look good.
Is there a better way?
I know you can manually share up to 5000 photos and I think 100 videos on the “Shared” tab in the apple photos app, but that is separate and tedious since it’s not automatic, and my library alone is over 12,000 photos and videos.
