Shared Photo Albums

I recently got a new iMac. However, my Shared Photo Albums are not showing up. How can I “restore” my shared albums on my iMac?! They are still on all my iOS devices. I must be missing something …

Thank you for your help …

Is “Shared Albums” checked in the Photos preferences under the iCloud tab?

Yes. I checked that.

Hey … I unchecked and then checked and it worked! ツ


FYI, photos in Shared Albums are reduced in resolution to size of 2048 pixels on the long side of the image. That may be acceptable for your intended use, but you and those with whom you share photos should be aware of this.

Photos in your primary iCloud Photos storage are stored in full resolution, but not those in Shared Albums.
