I have Family Sharing enabled with one other person in my 'family' and I pay for additional iCloud storage on both accounts.

To share photos, I usually create a shared album and share it with the other user. However, I read that Apple 1) does not share full resolution photos in shared albums and 2) limits video files to the first 5-minutes.

I need an alternative option now.

How can I best share full resolution photos, preferably in albums, and full-length videos with a user in my 'Family'? I'd like to use iCloud and stay in the Apple ecosystem.

Flickr is probably your best bet. Full resolution and 1TB of free space.

Unless you send the photos via iMessage or AirDrop they will be scaled down. Sucks, but it makes sense as shared albums don't count towards your iCloud usage.

Thanks for the reply. Flickr has similar limitations on video files, so that's not a good option. Plus, I'm paying for iCloud on two accounts so I want to use it as much as possible.
