Question: No "Shared" Section on Mac Photos

I can see to get my mac to show the Shared Albums. Actually the whole Shared section is missing.

1. My ICloud Photo Sharing is enabled.

2. I tried to close Photos and shut off the Photos Agent in Activity Monitor and restart Photos and still no luck.


I searched for solution for last 3 hours and still no luck. Please help

Answer:
Answer:

Are you signed into iCloud with the same AppleID that you used to create your shared albums?


1. My ICloud Photo Sharing is enabled.

Is iCloud Photo Sharing enabled in both places?

  • In System preferences > iCloud > Photos >> Options?
  • And in Photos Preferences > iCloud ?

You may first need to enable your Photos Library as your System Photos Library in Photos > Preferences > General: Use as SystemPhotos Library.


Is your Photos Library on a disk that is compatible with iCloud? Locally mounted, not a NAS, formatted MacOS Extended (Journaled).
