Are Photos from the Photos app in iOS backed up to iCloud? I basically make albums in iPhoto and they are saved in my Photos app on my device. I really hope these are getting backed up to iCloud. Can anyone confirm?

The last 1000 photos and 30 days are, via the photo stream. Apple details here. But this should be seen as a temporary solution.
