For the time being, my wife and I used to share the same iCloud account,

This was very convenient to share the family's calendar, contacts, and photos!

But from iOS 7, the sharing of Apple ID for the family looks compromised, iMessage and FaceTime are using common IDs on all devices connected with the same account...

I'm now considering creating an account for each of us and could find a solution for calendar, contacts, BUT not for photos!

 

Any idea to get Aperture accepting the photo stream coming from 2 Apple IDs?


Aperture 3, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.5)

Any idea to get Aperture accepting the photo stream coming from 2 Apple IDs?IOS 7 supports writing of persons with different AppleIDs to the same  shared photo stream. And I expect that iPhoto and Aperture will soon support this too.   From the IOS ipad user guide: http://manuals.info.apple.com/MANUALS/1000/MA1595/en_US/ipad_user_guide.pdfShare streams of photos and videos with people you choose. Friends you’ve chosen who have an iCloud account—and iOS 6 or later or OS X Mountain Lion or later—can join your stream, view the photos you add, and leave comments. If they have iOS 7, they can add their own photos and videos to the stream. You can also publish your stream to a website for anyone to view.  Regards Léonie

    How are you and your wife sharing the Aperture library? Do you have separate Mac accounts and have the library where you both can get at it or do you both log into the Mac using the same account?

     

    In either case I don;t believe it is possible. The stream used is tied to the users Apple ID  that is currently logged in. If you both log in using the same account then whatever Apple ID is tired to that account will be used. And if you use separate accounts then the library is tied to a specific stream.

     

    With IOS 7 it looks liked shared streams will be writeable by all users invited to the share the stream not just the user who created the shared stream. You might be able to leverage this into some sort of shared input into Aperture.

    1. Share streams of photos and videos with people you choose. Friends you’ve chosen who have an iCloud account—and iOS 6 or later or OS X Mountain Lion or later—can join your stream, view the photos you add, and leave comments.

    Are you sure it does not support it now.

     

    I know if does not support video but that would seem to require a change to Aperture to accept a different format from the stream but as for multiple users writing to a stream doesn't seem that Aperture would need to be aware.

    We are indeed using a single log in on our Mac.

    But it seems that the shared photo stream is the easiest way even though it equites that my wife or I manually moves photos from the camera roll to the shared stream.

    I tried several times, but when I try to share an image, neither iPhoto 9.4.3 nor Aperture 3.4.5 offer me any other Photo Stream than the ones I created myself. I cannot yet drop any image into a stream I do not own - on my mac.

     

    I have not yet tried it on my iPad.

    The shared stream will be the only way to do this.

     

    Non-shared Photostreams will always be restricted to one Apple ID.

    So if you subscribe to a stream from someone else you cannot add an image to it?

    Up to now the shared streams have been one-way streams, The invited persons could browse, download, and comment, but not add.

     

    I just tried again, if adding is now possible in Aperture, but it does not yet work for me.

    I just received the test image in my IOS 7 iPad Shared Stream. It is visible on the iPad, but not in Aperture or iPhoto on my MBPs. It does not even appear to be downloaded from the Photo Stream by MacOS X 10.8.5. At least, there is no trace of it in the User Library in "iLifeAssetManagement".
