Stream Photos to a TV

Sending photos to the web or sharing them via e-mail is nowhere near as fun or personal as showing them off to friends and family in the comfort of your own home. If you have pictures on your iOS device or computer, you can simply hand the device to a friend or have them sit in front of your computer and flick through the photos, but even that’s not taking full advantage of the features of iCloud and AirPlay. Adding an Apple TV to the mix makes things even better.

Just like the beautiful people in immaculate homes in the Apple advertisements, you too can share photos on your TV screen using the magic of AirPlay. The same principle applies to streaming photos as it does music and movies: You need a compatible device to send the media as well as a compatible device to receive it. In most cases, the device sending the pictures will be an iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, or a computer and the receiver will be the Apple TV.

But you can access photos stored in your Photo Stream right from your Apple TV without having to send it from another device. When connected to your iCloud account, your Apple TV can pull photos from the web and display them on your TV very easily. It can also access the photos stored on your computer, too.
