Apple TV Settings for the Classroom
While Apple TV’s default screen saver photographs are beautiful, you can use your own images for the screen saver. It’s like using the display connected to your Apple TV as a digital bulletin board! I suggest adding an iCloud Photos album on your Mac, iPhone, or iPad titled Apple TV. After adding images to this album, go into Apple TV’s Settings app and choose Screen Saver. Choose iCloud Photos and your album that you titled Apple TV. Note that the option to to use iCloud Photos as the screen saver is not displayed if you have hidden iCloud Photos from the main menu. It might be tricky using iCloud Photos if your iCloud account is different from the one used for the Apple TV. After you have that iCloud Photos or Flickr account all set up in as the screen saver, you don’t have to do anything on Apple TV when you want to make changes. Also in the Screen Saver settings: you can set how long each image is displayed and how long it takes before the screen saver activates.
