Gear: Does Chromecast Work for Sharing Your Images?

These days there are so many ways to share images with clients, your family and your friends via the internet, but what about when you want to share images on a TV in your living room or studio?  I love tech gadgets and decided to experiment with sharing photos on my TV using Google Chromecast.

For just $29.99, thanks to a promotion and my Amazon Prime account (which is so worth the money if you shop online a lot),  I ordered Google’s Chromecast device to see what the hype was about, and if it would work for sharing images from my devices and laptop to my TV.

Setting up Chromecast was super easy and took less than five minutes to get it connected to my TV (your TV must have an available HDMI input). I experimented with a couple of different ways to broadcast, including using the Chrome browser on my laptop to show a PASS gallery and grabbing an app in the iTunes store called CastOnTV. In the end, broadcasting images using the Chrome browser on my laptop and scrolling through an online gallery of images was the simplest and quickest way to get images up on the TV.

What’s in the box? You’ll find a USB power cable, power adaptor and HDMI extender connector hiding underneath the Chromecast device.
