I just bought an iPad for my mother and now I would like to turn on Photostream so she can see them.

Is there a setting I can change to make this possible?

If you're looking for general information - you can't do better than the FAQ Apple has prepared for the service. Feel free to ask another more specific question or edit this one if you need more help. – bmike Jul 24 '12 at 17:39

In Settings, login to iCloud (under the iCloud tab) and there you will get the option for Photo stream.

You can also go to the Photos tab in Settings and enable Photostream there. If you haven't logged into your iCloud account yet, the switch either won't be there or will prompt for login information.

If you are talking about sharing Journals in iPhoto through iCloud, start by creating a Journal, then tap the Share icon in the upper right corner, tap iCloud and follow the prompts.
