The Apple TV is a great way to show off your favorite photos in the living room. With iCloud Photos, you can see photos and videos on the big screen as soon as you take them. The Flickr App lets you browse any Flickr user’s photos. Of course, the Apple TV can also display photos from your iPhoto or Aperture library, or from any folder on your computer. Then, you can use photos from any of these sources to Customize the Screen Saver or to Make Slideshows.
