Sharing photo streams
I have been trying to figure out if there is anyway to share photo streams between people (such as my wife and myself) but still keep separate emails, calendars, contacts, etc. Since Apple doesn't allow people to subscribe or share a photo stream, I have been trying to find a work-around. I think I have found one, do you think this will work?
Let's keep it simple, and say there are the following two people - husband and wife. Each has an iPhone, and an iMac.
Husband sets up an iCloud account - email@example.com
Wife sets up an iCloud account - firstname.lastname@example.org
They set up a "joint" account - email@example.com
On their devices, for setting up the iCloud, they use the joint account. This means that all contacts, email, calendars from "firstname.lastname@example.org" will be shared between the two computers and two iPhones. It also means that the photos will be shared - any photos the husband takes on the iPhone will be sent to both iMacs...and the same with any Photos from the wife's account. Any photos loaded onto the wife's iMac (say, from her camera) will also be sent to all iPhones and the husbands computer via Photostream. Also, the devices will be backed up to that account, FindMyiPhone will work from that account (for both phones), documents in the cloud will work, etc.
Then, in his iPhone and iMac, under the mail settings, he adds the iCloud account "email@example.com". He sets is up to share his mail, contacts, calendars, email, reminders, notes, etc between his iPhone and iMac.
The wife does the same with her account, "firstname.lastname@example.org", with her iPhone and iMac. Now they both have a separate .me address, with their own calendar, contacts, email, etc, which will be kept separate from each other, but they share all photos between all computers.
From what I understand, that will work. Can anyone find a flaw in this set up? The photo libraries on both of the Macs would still be separate (so if the husband sorts things into specific events, that won't match up necessarily with the wife's iMac) but all photos will be on both computers.
