Hi and Tnxs for reading.

I cannot find the way to send my photo of iPhoto on AppleTv like I am doing with photo roll, since there is no AirPlay logo...

Any help?

iPhone 4, iOS 5

    If you would like to display your iPhoto window on an AppleTV tap the gear / action wheel as described in the help:


    -- Flip the switch for "Mirror on TV"

    I am also having this same issue on my iphone 4S using iphoto for ios.  Tried all weekend to figure it out.  There is no airplay icon anywhere to start streaming photos on Apple TV.  Also, toggling the "Mirror on TV" switch above does nothing either.  Very irritating.  Any help/direction from someone who has actually figured it out would be greatly appreciated.

    I found the solution.  The main Airplay button on the iPhone is accessed by double tapping the home button.  Then scroll all the way to the left.  You will see the AirPlay button to the right of the volume slider.  Tap it select Apple TV and then select mirror on TV.  Deselect mirror on tv in the iPhoto app to get full photo stream.  Start your slideshow.   Works for me.  Just wish it was better documented.

    Display mirroring requires an iPhone 4S or newer or iPad 2 or newer. Hope this clears it up.

    Hi, the only way to mirror photos in iPhoto is by using AirPlay mirroring, the setting mentioned by others above (mirror on tv) is used to swap between mirroring only the photo (off), and mirroring all the toolbars as well (on).


    Hope this helps.

    It still is weird though. Apple states in the description of iPhoto in the app store that iPhoto can be used to stream your slideshows to apple TV. But it can't. I hope they will add that in the next release and I find it very odd that it's not there already.
