On earlier Apple TV models, go to Settings → Screen Saver → Photos and choose your shared photos under the Computers heading.Step 7: A shared i Tunes library should appear on your fourth-generation Apple TV with My Music, Movies, TV Shows, Podcasts, Photos and other sections.Unfortunately, when I add new photos to any of these folders, they seem to take a really long time—sometimes a day or two—to actually appear on my Apple TV.I’m using i Cloud too and my Photo Stream pictures show up right away, so it seems the Apple TV is updating something, but I can’t figure out why it takes so long for pictures I’ve added on my computer to actually show up. The Apple TV doesn’t actually access your photo libraries or folders directly, but instead picks them up through i Tunes in much the same way as your music, movie and TV show content.You can turn Home Sharing on for up to five computers on the home network.
Step 4: You will be asked to enter your Apple ID and password.Step 1: Launch i Tunes on your computer and ensure Home Sharing is on. In a drop-down menu, select where you want to stream photos from: i Photo, Photos, your account’s Pictures folder or a custom folder on your computer.Step 2: Go to File → Home Sharing → Choose Photos to Share with Apple TV. Step 4: Now select “All photos, albums, events, and faces” or “Selected albums, events, and faces.” If you’ve chosen the latter, pick the albums, events and faces you want to stream to your Apple TV. Step 6: On your fourth-generation Apple TV, go to Settings → General → Screensaver → Type → Home Sharing.Tip: use Apple’s Remote app to speed up typing on the Apple TV.Before you can view photos from your computer on the Apple TV and use them as a screensaver, you must enable one more option in i Tunes.
