Maybe a strange question.

I want to share Cloud albums with family members, just to let them look at the albums.

Do my family members have to create an adobe-id to get access to the albums? They don't have an adobe license like I have to manage my photos.

Regards.

If you specifically set the album's share setting to "Invite Only" then yes, the invitee does require an Adobe ID to view. But if you set the share setting to "Anyone Can View" then send the URL, the people you send that link to will be able to view without needing to have an Adobe ID. If you simply change the setting from "Invite Only" to "Anyone Can View", then wait a minute for that change to sync, the viewer can use the same URL just by refreshing the browser page.

Simply right-click on an album and choose “Share & Invite” and then send your family members the automatic link. They will be able to view your photos. They would only need an Adobe account if the wished to “like” or add comments to your photos.

I tried this option already.
But the invited person has to sign in with an adobe-id to view the album. That's what I would like to avoid...

It should work unless Adobe has changed things. Try copying the link to the clipboard and sending separately.
