I shoot a photo in iPad. I want it will be available in iCloud. How can I do it? I cannot see the PhotoStream in iCloud.

I can see all Pages, Numbers etc documents but not photos, I find this very confusing.

You cannot view your Photo Stream pictures directly on In order to do this you need to create a new Photo Stream from you iPad, iPhone or Mac (using iPhoto or Aperture).

Here's a guide for doing so. In order to make it public on, make sure you flip the "Public Website" switch.

I did this and I added a photo to the photo-stream but I cannot find the photo in Where will the photos end up? – hhh Oct 25 '12 at 17:59
The url is made available underneath Public Website flip switch in the user interface. It will not show up on directly. – Francis Ouellet Oct 25 '12 at 18:02
Thank you, works! Had to just store the cumbersome url to bookmark -- cannot understand why Apple does this so hard, perhaps image-content-hosting is expensive. – hhh Oct 25 '12 at 18:10

You can't access pictures from Safari by going

You have to enable Photo Streaming form Settings > iCloud > Photo Stream.

Then you will find the Photo Streaming picture under the tab Photo Stream in the Photos App.
