    I am able to create an app that I can upload a picture into.. But how do I make it so that everybody else can see my picture iv uploaded.
    And add their own pictures...

    I'm just trying to understand the concept behind getting user interaction working.

    Do I need a website first?!
    Or can it all occur inside the app?!

    Thanks for your help.

    Assuming you are trying to duplicate an instagram style app. It sounds like you will need a backend in the cloud, where the images your users add are uploaded to and indexed in some kinda of database via some kinda API end points.

    Then someone API endpoints to download the images for other users too.

    It will be hard and very complicated. Especially handling uploading and downloading images.

    Dont forget to make it super secure, if the images could be sesitive.

    Good luck, let us know how you get on.

    If you want the images to be available to just people on your local network, you could use something like CocoaHTTPServer. It is an embeddable HTTP server.
