To start using the Photo Library of iCloud you need to have an iPhone, iPad or iPod updated to the version iOS 8. Then, simply follow the steps below:
1. Enter the application settings of your device.
2. Access the section “Photos & Camera”.
3. Here you’ll see an option called “iCloud Photo Library (beta)” next to a button. Tap on the button that appears next to this option. Your device will start uploading all media files automatically to your iCloud account. In addition, under this option will see two options: “optimize storage of …” and “Download and keep original”. Choosing the first option will allow you to reduce the space occupied by the media in your terminal. Or, choose the second option if you don’t want to change the quality of media files stored on the device. This process has to be done by the connectivity of WiFi.
4. While all media files are uploaded you can access the section “iCloud Photos” to see how your images and videos are stored in the cloud. Simply, go to http://beta.icloud.com, enter the details of your iCloud account (email and password) and tap on the option “Photos”.
The operation of this new option is available only through the beta version of iCloud. But anyone with iCloud photos option enabled on your iCloud account can start using this tool for storing photos and videos from iPhone to icloud. iCloud photos also has an option that allows you to upload photos from your computer directly to your iCloud account. With this new option you can send photos to iCloud account then be able to view from any Apple device associated with that same account.
