This morning my wife was busy trying to decide how to do fall decorating. She took my iPad with her to the storage area we have to view last year's pictures which were in a shared file via iCloud. While she was there, I began to look for other decorating ideas on my iMac. I downloaded a number of web pics to my download folder. In order to share those with my wife while she had my iPad, I imported them into iPhoto and shared a new folder via iCloud. Although this did not take a lot of time, I was wondering if there was a way for me to instantly share any downloaded pics without having to import and them share via iPhoto?

or Copy, or OneDrive, or Box, or SugarSync, or ... well you get the idea. Dropbox I find too stingy with free storage, all the others I've mentioned offer far more free space.

Another option is simply create a new Shared Photo Stream from the iPhoto album, with your wife as the only other party with access.

A shared photo stream was what I used. Would be nice if downloaded pics could be automatically imported in iphoto since looking in the photo album/app is so automatic

Demapples,
For my purposes at this time, all I wanted to do was be able to share pics I downloaded to iMac immediately on iPad on the same the steps of importing to iPhoto and then sharing via photo stream.
