#TBT in the age of iCloud Photo Library

ThrowBackThursday is an internet meme where, on Thursdays, you post a photo of yourself from an earlier part of your life.

Now, with iCloud Photo Library, if you’re doing a #TBT on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter from your iPhone, you’re no longer limited to the photos in your camera roll or those you’ve laboriously synced over from your personal computer. You have access to all the photos you’ve taken, ever, from every device you have connected to iCloud — including your potentially massive, historic Photos for OS X library.

That means when you go to throw back, you can throw back. We, the editors of iMore, decided to give it a try.

So @reneritchie said to find my oldest #selfie in iCloud Photo Library – circa 2010 – so appropriate!

These are all photos none of us previously had access to on our iPhones. Now we do, going back years, and without having to worry about running out of space. That’s because all our older, infrequently viewed photos stay on iCloud unless and until we tap on the thumbnail to download and use them.

That ability to just have all your photos with you everywhere is amazing, and it enables all sorts of things, including a whole new level of #TBT.

So now it’s your turn — go to Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter, post the oldest selfie iCloud Photo Library gives you access to, tag it with #TBT and #iMore, and we’ll pick a few of our favorites, post them here, and hand out some prizes to go with them!
