    Hi

    I have my iPhone set up to automatically save the photos i take to save straight onto my iMac. My partner also uses a iPhone but on a different iCloud address. Can i get her photos to save to the same photos app automatically as she takes them?

    Thanks in advanced for any help you may be able to offer.

    No. You both would have to use the same iCloud account for it to do it automatically.

    You can share albums. But to move photos between accounts would be manually and not automatically.

    Here is the information on sharing:

    Ok. Thanks for your help. Hopefully this is something Apple can add in the future.

    They already have Family Sharing. So if you want to be fully responsible for your "Partner" financially you can go that route. Once added any purchases they make will be charged to your account. But then they would be able to add to your photos in theory.
