16. Using Apple’s MobileMe with iPhoto ’11

Use Apple’s MobileMe online service to create and share online photo galleries.

Apple has its own fee-based online service, called MobileMe, which offers a handful of useful functions for Mac users (as well as users of other Apple devices, such as an iPhone or iPad).

One of the ways you can use MobileMe is to create, publish, and share online-based photo galleries or to create simple personal web pages that showcase your images.

Subscribing to Apple’s MobileMe service is optional. It requires you to pay an annual membership fee of $99 per year (single user) or $149 per year (for a family membership). When you buy a new Mac, Apple periodically offers a discounted membership rate for the first year.
