How to add photos to a Shared Album
Now that you have created a shared album, adding pictures is like adding photos to any other iPhone album. You can select photos from "All Photos," or select them from other albums, like "Screenshots" or "Favorites."
The big difference: Anyone that you've invited to the album can add photos as well, creating a unique photo portal for easy sharing between friends and family.
