There are many people who got confused between the Shared Photo Streams and iCloud Photo Sharing. Shared Photo Stream and iCloud Photo Sharing are basically the same things. iCloud Photo Sharing (Shared Photo Streams) allow users to select a private circle of friends and family to do group sharing of photos and videos as well. Here's how create a, iCloud Photo Sharing (shared iCloud Photo Stream):
Launch the Photos app.
At the bottom of the screen are three tabs: Photos, Shared and Albums. Tap your finger on Shared.
At the top left corner of the screen is a small button with a plus (+) sign. Tap the button to begin creating your shared photo stream. You can also tap the blank album with a giant plus sign.
First, name your shared photo album. If you are sharing a select number of photos around a theme such as a vacation, go with something simple. I like to have a default shared album called 'Our Photos' to cherry pick my best photos and videos.
After tapping the 'Next' button, you will be offered a chance to invite people to the shared photo album. Treat this the same as you would typing in the recipients of an email. When you are done, tap 'Create' at the top.
To add photos to the shared stream, simply open up the photo album and tap the blank picture with the plus sign. This will take you to a screen where you can pick out multiple pictures. After you have selected the photos you want to share, you can hit the 'Done' button at the top-right corner of the screen and they will be added to the shared album.
You can also add individual photos to the album anytime you are viewing a photo by tapping the Share button and then tapping the iCloud Photo Sharing button in the menu that pops up.

PicBackMan does exactly what it's supposed to. It's quick and efficient. It runs unobtrusively in the background and has done an excellent job of uploading more than 300GB of photos to 2 different services. After having lost a lot of personal memories to a hard drive crash, it's nice to know that my photos are safe in 2 different places.

LOVE this program! Works better than ANY other program out there that I have found to upload thousands of pictures WITH SUB-FOLDERS to SmugMug!
Thank you so much for what you do! :) #happycustomer
I pointed PicBackMan at a directory structure, and next time I looked - all the photos had uploaded! Pretty cool. I use SmugMug and while I really like it, the process of creating directories in is pretty laborious when you need to make 80+ at a time. This was a breeze. Thank you!
PicBackMan was really easy to setup and has been running for 3 days now backing up all my locally saved photos to Flickr. My photos are really valuable to me so it's great to be able to have them easily backed up to a secure location.
It's AWESOME!! I have tens of thousands of pictures...and they are now successfully uploaded to SmugMug, where they are safely backed up, and I can edit and organize them. If you are hesitating about using PicBackMan, hesitate no longer...try it...and you'll be glad you did!!
I started with the basic plan, went to premium and now on their platinum plan and it's more than worth the price for me. PicBackMan has saved me many tedious hours of effort moving many files between my various cloud and photo site services and my local computers.
I am very satisfied and surprised at the same time with Pic BackMan. The service is very good and useful. I used it to transfer my photos from Dropbox to my Flickr accound. I highly recomment it.
PicBackMan was an answer to many a prayer. How can I get this MASSIVE collection of photos onto a service that cripples uploading? PicBackMan. I uploaded approximately 85,000 photos in less than a month. It would have taken me close to a year to get all of those photos where they needed to go. Nothing short of brilliant.
I have thousands of family photos and it's always been such a pain to upload them to various cloud services for offline storage. Well not anymore! PicBackMan makes backing everything up a complete breeze. I don't know how I ever lived without it!
I was poking around the Internet looking for an easy tool to help me consolidate 15 years of my pictures from Google Photos and Flickr etc - this tool was very easy to use and was painless to setup.
