Join Seán Duggan for an in-depth discussion in this video Share photos with the Photos app, part of iPhone and iPad Photography with iOS 10.
- Sharing our images is one of the most enjoyable parts of mobile photography. The photos app offers several ways to share your pictures with family and friends, and even social media websites right from within the app. Let's take a quick look at how these work. When you're viewing a single photo in the photo's app, tap on the share button to bring up a screen showing the different sharing options. Now, you can also access this using 3-D touch from out in the thumbnail view in the photos app. Just do a hard press on the photo you want to share and then swipe up, and you'll see that there's an option to tap share there as well.
Here in the top row, you can see that you can attach a photo to a text message or an e-mail, as well as post to twitter, Facebook, and other sites. Or, upload to a shared album on iCloud sharing. Now, you can, of course, attach a photo to a text or e-mail from within the messages or mail apps. If you swipe to the left to reveal the more option over here on the right side, you can tap on that, and you'll see which sites can be added so they show up as icons in the first screen. Apps that are currently activated will have the switch turned on.
But, I can easily turn on others if I want to. For instance, I'm gonnna come down here and turn Flickr on. You can also rearrange the order of these sites by dragging on the three lines on the far right to reposition an app. So, I'm going to move Flickr up here a little bit closer to the top. Right up there, and maybe I'll move Twitter up as well. I'll tap done, and now you can see how the ordering of these app icons has changed and they now appear closer to the front of the list.
You can also reorder the icons in this view by pressing on an icon and dragging it to a new position. If you choose iCloud photo sharing, you'll be prompted to add a name for the album. Or, if you have shared albums already, you can choose from one of those. You could also add an optional comment to the photo if you want to. We'll take a look at iCloud photo sharing in another movie. Just tap cancel there. And now, I'm going to cancel to exit out of the sharing screen. To share multiple images, return to a thumbnail view and then tap select in the upper right corner.
Then, select thumbnails that you want to share. I'll just choose a few of these. Remember, you can also select multiple shots by swiping across several of them. And then, tap the share or export button in the lower left corner again. You'll see the same options as before only now you'll be sharing multiple images. At the top of the screen, it displays how many images are selected. You could also modify the selection by tapping on the circle in the lower corner of images to add or remove them from the selected images.
I'll tap cancel in the upper left, and then I'll tap cancel again to deselect those images. And now, let's talk about the video sharing options. I'll select a video file and I'll tap the share button. And, you can see that in addition to the usual web sharing options here, I also have the option to share out to Youtube and Vimeo as well. If I tap on Youtube, I get a screen where I can add information about the video and configure the upload and posting options for Youtube.
Having an iPhone means that you also have a very capable camera with you most of the time. So, we all end up taking a lot of pictures with it. And, while it's wonderful to have a collection of our photos and our memories on our iPhones and iPads, it's when we share our photos that the pictures that are meaningful to us can become meaningful to other people as well.
