Amazon issued a press release today to announce that its Cloud Drive service is rolling out in Italy and Spain after hitting the United Kingdom, France, and Germany earlier this month. An easier way of uploading iPhoto albums for Mac users is also included in the updated Cloud Drive app release. Clicking the Cloud Drive menu bar item will allow you to select “Import from iPhoto,” and now you can select from multiple iPhoto albums sorted by events before uploading to Cloud Drive. Amazon explained:
- iPhoto for Mac about to get much needed bug fixes (9to5mac.com)
- Amazon Cloud Drive’s gets ‘scan and match’, higher bit rates, much more (9to5mac.com)
- Mountain Lion 10.8.2 to require iPhoto and Aperture updates for Shared Photo Streams (9to5mac.com)
In addition, Cloud Drive customers in the U.S. and Europe using Mac computers can now easily upload their iPhoto albums to Cloud Drive in as little as two clicks using the Cloud Drive Desktop App. Users can select the events they want to upload and the Cloud Drive Desktop App seamlessly uploads photos so they can be enjoyed instantly on Kindle Fire or from any web browser.
