Defining a poster frame for iCloud, photo sharing

The Question:

How to set a custom frame displays for videos shared via iCloud, photo sharing?

Use case:

I have converted old home movies VHS into segments of small 3-5 minutes and you want to share these clips to my family via iCloud, photo sharing. This will allow the videos to travel with them on their iPhone.

The problem:

These segments are stored in the Photos app. I have chosen some of these segments and chose an image poster - it works. I right click, choose sharing to iCloud, photo sharing. The file appears in a newly shared album, but the poster frame is returned to the first frame of the video. In the case of the VHS, it's a blurred image, or a framework that does not clearly show the content (for example, a sofa, or heaven).

Right-clicking on a video gray shared on the option to reselect a poster frame.

What you need to do is clip from the first few frames of video in PHotos. Double-click on the video to open it in read mode.  Click on the speed on the right button and select Trim.

Turn the left side of the yellow box to the right to remove foires executives

Click on the button on the right.

Now try to add to the shared album.

  • ICloud Photos, Shared folder using for the screensavers on Apple TV

    On my new Apple TV, I want to use Photos in iCloud to provide pictures randomly a shared folder as screensavers. When I put in place (following the instructions of the manual) the program apparently caught a selection random, relatively small images of the record (20-30?) and just cycled through these photos as screensavers. The product does not seem to choose from all of the shared folder and does not seem to offer a way to even go back and get another small selection of the folder to provide variety. I can apparently use home sharing and get the new selections in the period and re - select the folder (I could do with my old generation of Apple TV), but it is not apparently possible with the iCloud Photos, shared folder option. It also takes me to have my computer and open iTunes. I had hoped to get around this with the new Apple TV.

    Apple support had no answers.

    Is there something that I am missing?

  • ICloud deleting deletes photo library photos from iCloud, photo sharing

    I have iCloud photo library on my Mac and on my iPhone.  I created an album of photos and videos to spend several weeks going apartment hunting in my neighborhood.  I have friends who are also looking for apartments in my neighborhood and these photos and videos would be useful for them.  So I want to share all these content with them using iCloud, photo sharing.  However, I have this great set of photos/videos over on my Mac or my iPhone, because I have an apartment and my use for these photos.

    So I want to:

    1. create a shared album (let's call it 'Videos apartment').

    2. Add all my photos and videos of my apartment hunting that is currently in my library to iCloud.

    3 share only iCloud library with my friends (they can add, comment, do what they want)

    4 delete the original files from my library to iCloud I don't don't need or want these photos over on my personal devices.

    My question is: if I delete the photo in step 4, which will also remove the same pictures of the iCloud Shared Library?

    It would be useful to know if the iCloud share photos are copies separated from my photos of the library, or are the same.

    Sharing albums and Photo library iCloud iCloud different services and are stored independently from each other.

    When you create a shared album and share with your friends, you will see the shared album and photos in your photo library, but you can remove the originals from your photo library, as long as you do not remove the shared album photos. In the shared album photos can be slightly smaller than your original photos, because there is a limit of size of pixels for shared photos.

  • Why the 75 GB of videos on the iPhone when I iCloud, photo sharing on?

    I'm sure Im missing something, but I thought the whole point of iCloud, photo sharing was photos and videos to publish servers iCloud and you download the photos high resolution or video streams as required. However, 75 GB of videos is on my iPhone. I got iCloud, sharing photos over many months. I currently have 200 GB of storage, take Photos and videos, 154 GB and theres about 45 GB free. I have all the movies or TV shows from the iTunes store than sync.

    (Maybe wrong), I assumed it would just automatically happen, and I wouldn't have to worry about filling my memory of iPhones.

    If you use iCloud photo library and if you have settings > iCloud > Photos > Optimize iPhone storage enabled, optimized for the smaller versions will be kept on your phone "If your iPhone is low on space" (this quote is from the screen of the settings above). Does not the validation of the amount of free space on your phone, but optimization can not occur if space is not needed.

  • Activation deactivation iCloud, photo sharing

    On my iPhone I have iCloud library & My Photo off steam but iCloud Photo Sharing turned on.  To be honest, I don't know how iCloud Photo Sharing turned on - I do not use it.  I would like to disable now iCloud, photo sharing and return to the way it was with my own storage original iPhone.  When I go to disable the button from iCloud on my iPhone photo sharing it says that it will remove pictures of Commons of my camera (which is now all the photos I have on my iPhone).  My question is, is this really the case? Can't I just go back to the way (I think) is on the device before icloud, photo sharing has been enabled?

    It must just be better worded. It references only the shared albums as separate from your actual film association. It removes nothing of your camera by activating / deactivating it turned off.

    iCloud photo sharing creates copies of your photos, if you turn it off the originals will always be there as long as you have not deleted or they aren't someone else first.

    If you disable the iCloud photo sharing, you can reactivate again and will return all pictures that have been deleted.

  • Add photos to shared folders, stuck to the status of 'Préparation' in iCloud, photo sharing

    Dear community,

    I encounter this problem on my iPhone 6 (64 GB). Especially when I selected pictures and videos.

    When adding Shared Pictures folders in iCloud how is the transformation that is happening? I was wondering if my original photos are stored in the clouds and I add to a folder shared, the command is recommended to use the side Server - I mean copy photos in a shared folder in the cloud, rather than download to my local storage of phone because it stores only the optimized versions of the originals.

    So if this whole process happening this way, then how is it is stuck in my local device? : S

    Could you please give me some clarification on this?

    Thank you in advance,


    Please ensure that you have a backup of your current library. Launch Photos while keeping the Option + command keys. Select this option to repair your library database.

    If this does not resolve the problem, the problem could have been moved from your iPhoto library. In this case save, then fix the (same method) iPhoto library and perform a new migration into Photos.

    If you need choose the right library when launch, hold down the Option key.

  • must anyone using iCloud photo sharing have an Apple device

    The family has an iPhone or a Mac computer.  Some computers are older and do not work elCapitan.  Should everyone have an Apple elCapitan device to use sharing photos running?

    You can view sharing photos without an Apple device, if you share your albums as a public web page and send the link to anyone without an Apple device, see this help page:

    iCloud, sharing photos - Apple Support

    You can even share albums with friends and family who do not use iCloud. Just open a shared album you have created, go to the people tab on your iOS device or click on on your Mac and turn on the Public website. Your photos publish on a website that anyone can see in an up-to-date web browser.
