” ... support for uploading photo journals to iCloud ... “

So, Photo Journals.  Is this the replacement for MobileMe Gallery?

Exactly what I was thinking @Lancashire-Witch, is there a replacement for my beloved Gallery app on the horizon?

@Substance.  Could be.  I uploaded a photo Journal to iCloud using iPhoto on my iPhone.  I managed to generate a blank page which i can’t find a way of deleting; other than that it seems to work OK.  What you see on the iCloud web page is very close to what you see on the iPhone. I guess it would be much easier if I had a iPad.

Now,  if iPhoto on my Mac had the same feature then I’d be very happy.  Maybe it has - I don’t have the latest version.

iPhoto for iPad/iPhone looks like a whole different reason for buying the new iPad(maybe even an old iPad depending on the application works on an older model). Tablets are coming into their own for content creation and not just consumption of media(although the new iPad will be good for consumption as well). The big question will be what MSFT comes out with at the end of the year. As always, it will be about the integration of hardware and software as well as what applications will be able to run your hardware. Apple just upped the ante with the iLife suite being available on the iPad. Things just got a little more risky for MSFT having to hit a home run with Windows 8 to keep pace.

I was going to jump on this (probably still will), but I’m curious whether iPhoto on iPad has any hooks or connections to your iPhoto library on Macs on your local network. It doesn’t sound like it does (apart from iCloud syncing).

I have just spent a bit too long playing with this feature…

The web page can be deleted by turning off the publishing ( and is also inaccessible while the page is being refreshed by rearranging your images)  This is accessed through the ‘sharing’/output icon in the top line
The journal can also have pictures on multiple pages, or they can be forced onto just one.

The Journal can be deleted: From the ‘journals home screen’ touch on the cog control.  The first button gives the option to edit journals - This gives the option to delete a journal or add it to the shelf of favourites.

I am intrigued to know about the ‘add to home page’ feature, under the ‘publish to iCloud’ control it seems to create an online catalog of all you photo journals.

iPhoto doesappear to sync through the iTunes process, with whatever albums/faces/places/smart albums you have chosen to sync - at least this is my phone experience.
My lack of iPad2 makes the new one all the more easy to justify…

for what it’s worth… here is the ‘homepage’ layout ...
the actual URL is a bit long, so lets go with http://tinyurl.com/7m4af2m

At this point, I can’t see any security options/restricted journals
Letme know what you all find smile
