AOL Pictures application allows you to create and view albums on the AOL Pictures service. It will also install an iPhoto Export plug-in that you can use to export your photos directly from iPhoto to the AOL Pictures service.
AOL Pictures requires an existing Internet connection. AOL Pictures will only offer to install the iPhoto Export plug-in if you have iPhoto 4.0 or later installed. AOL Pictures officially only supports AOL Accounts. Some AIM accounts may work, but are not supported at this time. The AOL Pictures Web site (http://pictures.aol.com) can be used with an AIM account. AOL Pictures does not support sharing of albums directly from the application. To share an album, you can create it with AOL Pictures, but then you'll need to use the AOL Pictures Web site (http://pictures.aol.com) to share your album with friends.
