iCloud Photo Library lets you see all your images on every iDevice you own and it lets you share pictures and videos with your friends and family. But what about sharing photos with friends and family who don't (gasp!) use an iPhone or iPad? It's OK, every family has one or two deluded souls like this. And the good news is you can still share that video of Junior's 5th grade play with them. Here’s how to share your photos with non-iDevice users.

The iPhone has a camera app for taking pictures, but the iPad also has a Photobooth app similar to the one most Apple computers have. Unlike the camera app on your phone, the Photobooth app has filters and effects to alter the image you’re capturing before you even take the picture. Personally, the Kaleidoscope effect is my favorite—everything looks cool. Here’s how to add and change effects in Photobooth on your iPad.

In photos, there are two different ways to share collections of images and videos. You can share moments, which are found under the Photos tab and usually encompass a day or location. Or, you can select individual images and videos to compile your own collection to share, which is what we'll cover in this tip. Perhaps you visited Costa Rica and want to share pictures of the beach, or a friend's baby is just learning to walk and she wants to send you videos. Regardless of the occasion, it’s fairly easy to share or copy multiple photos and videos. Here’s how to do it.

You need space on your phone and quickly! So you delete a few (or a few hundred!) photos. However, that doesn’t seem to give you space.

Starting with the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, iPhones come with a selection of Live Photo Wallpaper images to bring color and animation to your Lock screen. You can use Live Photos as your Home screen Wallpaper too. However, if Apple's selection of Live Photo Wallpapers aren't what you want in a Lock screen or Home screen background, you can always use your own Live Photo instead.

Apple introduced the Live Photo feature with the iPhone 6S, and it's still a fun and popular feature of the native iPhone Camera app. Unless you've unselected Live Photo settings in the Camera Settings, the Live Photo function is on by default when you open the Camera app, so you need to turn off Live Photo if you want a traditional still shot. Sometimes, though, we all forget to turn off Live Photo; now what? No worries, you can delete the Live Photo version of your picture and keep the still photo.
