Subscribing Using Safari or Another RSS Reader

The process of subscribing to a photocast using an RSS reader will vary depending on the RSS reader being used. If you’re using Safari version 2 or higher (included with Mac OS X 10.4 and higher), you can view a photocast by simply going to the address of the photocast. To subscribe to the photocast, simply add it to your bookmarks in Safari. To subscribe using a different RSS reader, refer to the reader’s documentation because the process is no different from subscribing to any other RSS feed.

Be aware, however, that not all RSS readers are capable of properly interpreting a photocast using the address provided by iPhoto because the address generated by iPhoto begins with photocast.mac.com, but actually redirects to web.mac.com (both indicate files that are stored in your iDisk). A number of RSS readers can’t interpret the RSS feed properly when it gets redirected like this. If you send a photocast address to users, and they get a syntax error message from their RSS readers, substituting web.mac.com at the beginning of the address instead of photocast.mac.com should allow them to view and subscribe to your photocast.
