iCloud Photo Sharing Question ???
Posted by: steve...
Date: September 18, 2016 05:57PM
I scanned part of my grandparent's photo album pages and want to share them with relatives. Some of them are on PCs with no Apple devices. If they download and install the free iCloud for Windows, will they be able to view the photos? Or do they need something else?

I know there's a Public Website option to view the photos but I'd rather keep them private. I've been googling but had no luck. TIA

Yes, it sure looks like it:

You've scanned them, but have you already uploaded them to iCloud?

If not, there's no necessity to use iCloud, or force them to install software just to view some photos.

All of the cloud photo and file storage services have sharing options. Many of them are also more generous with storage allocations on their free tiers.

Flickr, Google Photos, Photobucket, Dropbox, etc.

Take your pic (har har).
