Daughter posts her thousands of travel photos to iCloud in some

Bad construction.  Should be "...wants apple stuff to be shared ONLY
with other apples users?"  Carry on.

Correction accepted! :-)

If there's some workaround, does anybody know what it is?  What can I
tell her to do to make her photos visible to the rest of us?

Apple's iCloud is FANTASTIC!  :-D

Photos taken on an iPhone are almost instantly viewable on my iPad and
iMac - it's like ....... magic!

Recommendation?  Get an iDevice!  You'll love it! ;-)

Overkill for my needs by a factor of a thousand.  Well, maybe 500...

Daughter said she'd put her photos on google+.  Maybe she'll even do it.

Family photos ------>  Facebook!

Have you actually TRIED it?

What, facebook photos?  Or an iDevice?  I don't trust FB for any
long-term storage and I'm pretty sure I'll never buy an iDevice.

I meant - have you tried Facebook? You'll never know the advantages unless you *DO* try it!

Not everybody can afford to buy a Rolls Royce - I do understand that.

I set it up for an elderly pal of mine who is now 93 years of age. He's
fascinated that he can now communicate easily with his daughter in
Sydney, Australia and with a granddaughter in Hong Kong!

FWIW, I've not found Google+ to be the easiest facility to use. :-(

Google photos suck badly.  They wrecked the Picasa website when they
converted it.  I've lost all respect for google.  I use what they offer,
but I wish I liked them like I did when they started.

I know where you are coming from on this - but I *DO* still trust Google.

I have google+ so I can use google phone/voice via wifi just in case I
ever need it.  As a substitute for whatever it's supposed to be a
substitute for, it's unpleasant.  Like googlegroups :-(

C'mon! Cheer up. Life's not THAT bad ;-)
