iOS devices are great for showing off your photos to family members because of it’s ease of use and fluidity when perusing your photos. However, most of us don’t carry around our entire iPhoto library on our iPhone or iPad because of space limitations and Photo Stream's limited quanity. Fortunately, with the help of an application like Blinq, you can remotely access your entire iPhoto or Aperture library from home via your iOS device.
After downloading the application from the Blinq Photo website, you will need to launch the application to begin setup. Click Next on the first screen.
The next screen will prompt you to specify a name for the computer you’re using. On this screen, you can also set whether you wish Blinq to automatically start when your computer starts. Click Next when done.
Blinq for iOS can be downloaded for free from the iTunes App Store. Install this application just as you would any other iOS app. The application is Universal, so it will work on iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad natively.
After launching the app, you’ll be prompted to sign in using your existing login (or create a new login if you haven’t done that already). Enter your credentials, and then tap on the “Go” button on the keyboard to complete the sign in process.
After signing in and a few seconds pass, Blinq will automatically find all of the computers linked to your account. Tap on the linked computer to begin perusing the photos stored on it.
If you don’t have an iOS device, or you’d rather show off your photos on a larger screen, you can log into BlinqPhoto.com and sign in with your credentials to pull your iPhoto library and display pictures through a web browser.
