    Anyone know if it's possible to view your Mac's (High Sierra) Photo's (in the Photo's App) with an iPad on the same wifi network?

    Same way you can use remote to see iTunes music on iOS.

    The same way you can view your photos on the Apple TV.

    'Sharing' under Photos preferences doesn't exist like it did in iPhoto.

    If your photos are on iCloud Photo Library, you can turn that on your iPad and view them. If not, you could always AirDrop.

    I want to browse them like I can do with music (remote) and photos on Apple TV.

    I can’t use iClound photo library because my library is 90GB. (And I don’t want them on the cloud)

    I just want to browse my photos locally without having to have my Mac on my lap.

    Unfortunately that is not possible. I use the app RemoteFiles for this.

    You can use an Apple TV for it, if you ahve one.
