I have made over 3000 pictures during my last trip, mostly with the iPhone.

I then shared them as a photo album in iCloud with my family, but neither of us can figure out how to enable geolocation data. It obviously would be quite handy to know which picture is taken where, and display the map like photos can for unshared pictures.

How is that done?


Under Preferences, select "Include location information for published items". You then probably need to delete and re-create your shared album to get the location metadata

  • Thanks! It's a bit frustrating that the setting be global... I might want to share locations with my gf, but not with my colleague. Maybe I'll file a request on Apple's bug report tool ^^ Also, having to recreate the album would suck, already have lots of comments on it. I'll see if it updates by itself. – Kheldar Sep 28 '15 at 13:23
  • You may be able to delete and re-add the pictures and comments attached to the album will remain. – Dan Kohn Sep 28 '15 at 17:58
  • Which preferences are you referring to please? – Jafar Dec 11 '18 at 22:40
