Apple is preparing to add new photo-sharing features to its iCloud service, according to a new report. Citing people familiar with the matter, the Wall Street Journal reports that the new features will allow iCloud users to share sets of photos with other iCloud users and comment on photos. The report goes on to say that Apple is also working on a feature that would allow iCloud users to sync videos via iCloud. Apple is expected to announce the iCloud upgrade alongside iOS 6 at next month’s Worldwide Developers Conference.

Good.  That’s the biggest feature of MobileMe that I was really going to miss:  super-easy way to share groups photos on a clean website.  Loved that capabiblity in MobileMe and used it ALL the time.

I really hope that the sharing will not be limited to other iCloud users, otherwise a lot of non-Apple friends and family would miss out (maybe that’s the point).

iCloud photo sharing, another surpassed-by-social-networking feature, brought to you by the same winning team that invented Ping for iTunes.
