EDIT As of March 7th 2012 you can now delete individual photos from Photo Stream if you are running iOS 5.1 or iPhoto 9.2.2 Believe it or not, it seems you can't delete individual photos from iOS5 Photo Stream. It seems you'll need to wait for them to scroll off as Photo Stream just holds your most recent 1000 pics. Deleting a picture from Camera ...

Update: Apple now allows you to share your Photo Stream with others. More info on the official Photo Stream page here At the moment no. The only way to access your stream is from a Lion Machine using either iPhoto or Aperture, or from another iOS 5.0 device with Photo Stream enabled. I am not entirely sure if Apple is going to allow a sharing portal, ...

After doing some research, I finally found where they were located, and then figured a quick way to get back to them. The files themselves are stored in hashed folders under ~/Library/Application Support/iLifeAssetManagement/assets/sub. I then created a Smart Folder using this path, and then selecting Kind as "Image". This then provides me with a ...

On a Windows system you can access Photo Stream by installing iCloud Control Panel for Windows. Based on the description it allows you to access all the features within iCloud. Though this is only supported in Vista and Windows 7. The iCloud Control Panel is required to use Photo Stream, Mail, Contacts and Calendars (Microsoft Outlook 2007 or later ...

Enable the photo streaming, then you can view the photo from any device connected with your apple ID and have iCloud enabled. Check the Photo stream page on apple.com : http://www.apple.com/icloud/features/photo-stream.html

Yes, everything sent to or from iCloud is encrypted with SSL: iCloud Security iCloud secures your content by encrypting it when sent over the Internet, storing it in an encrypted format, and using secure tokens for authentication. Encrypting content that is sent over the Internet The following content is encrypted using SSL (Secure Sockets ...

Yes! A process called PhotoStreamAgent runs at login, and idles in the background, downloading new photos when they're uploaded to your Photo Stream. There exist both /Applications/Aperture.app/Contents/Library/LoginItems/PhotoStreamAgent.app and /Applications/iPhoto.app/Contents/Library/LoginItems/PhotoStreamAgent.app, indicating that this ...

Since Photo Stream backs your Camera Roll, any app that uses its own storage space rather than the Roll should do - and I doubt many have been (or can be) updated to backup their own storage to Photo Stream at this early stage. I'm a fan of Camera+, myself. It saves photos to its own storage, and lets you push them to the Camera Roll (and, therefore, Photo ...

There is also already a mechanism to sync PhotoStream photos to Windows PCs. See the PC instructions on 'How to set up iCloud'. I've used this and it works well. It adds a new folder to your PC, wherever your pictures are currently stored (e.g. the Pictures library, if on Windows 7). Once they've been synced to the PC, you can just upload them using ...

I have found a better way. One that doesn't involve resync'ing the entire stream. Quit iPhoto Open up Activity Monitor In the search field enter: photostreamagent Select all the PhotoStreamAgent processes listed Click the Quit Process button In the confirmation dialog that pops up click the Quit button Confirm that all the PhotoStreamAgent processes are no ...

Photostream will store the previous 30 days worth of photos automatically. That means, every photo you take on your iOS devices will be sent to Photostream, but only the last 30 days worth of photos will be available there. If you enable 'Automatic Import' of Photostream in iPhoto (Preferences > Photostream > Automatic Import) then when you launch iPhoto, ...

How Photo Stream Works If you have Photo Stream enabled on both iPhone and iPhoto, any picture you take on iPhone is automatically uploaded to Photo Stream, and the automatically downloaded to iPhoto. iPhoto must be open for this to occur (but don't worry, the photos stay in Photo Stream for 30 days or until 1000 more pictures are taken, whichever comes ...

Photo Stream isn't actually as bad as it seems. You don't need to launch iPhoto to get the photo — it's already on your Mac and much faster than it appears in iPhoto. Your Photo Stream is stored in: ~/Library/Application Support/iLifeAssetManagement/assets/sub Go to this folder and sort by date. Inside those folders are JPGs of all your photos. You can ...

Currently it can't. Photo Stream settings are detected via the iCloud preference pane and is global to your machine. Until it can support multiple iCloud accounts, iPhoto can only connect to one Photo Stream at a time. Since it's only a temporary store of the last photos taken I am assuming Apple will most likely not make this possible. I normally move my ...

Yes - your example of running a supported OS in virtualization would let you use the officially developed and supported Apple client software to tap into the photo stream. Once you have the software running, it should be fairly painless to get the files to disk and then available for viewing on Snow Leopard. It's technically possible to virtualize Lion as ...

All photos on Photo Stream are stored in the cloud in full resolution. When they are pushed to an iPhone, iPad, iPod touch or Apple TV, they are downsized to make the best use of bandwidth available to those devices. So when you save a photo which was taken by another device from Photo Stream to your iPad's Camera Roll, it doesn't receive the full ...

Yes, you can it save to the Camera Roll with the Arrow in the left corner and choose "Save to Camera Roll". It's the last Menu Point.

A photo stored in the Camera Roll is permanently stored on your device (until you delete it). Only 1,000 photos are saved in the Photo Stream on an iOS device, so if enough photos are uploaded to your Photo Stream the old ones will be purged. (But a Mac or PC will save all of the photos in your Photo Stream by default.) According to Apple, the downscaling ...

I had this very problem today. I had taken 40 or so photos on iPhone 4, iOS 5.1, and when I got back to WiFi connection, I waited more than an hour for the photos to appear in PhotoStream either on the iPhone or my iPad, and they didn't. None of the following worked: Switching the iPhone to Airplane mode and back Killing the Camera and Photos apps Turning ...

First question: yes, iCloud backs up your photo as it is. If you delete media from your photos library it will be deleted from iCloud. (I might add that videos are also stored in the cloud - and consequently take up the most room). Second question: It is possible you can use the Scanner and Camera wizard to import photos from your iPhone. Here is are two ...

iCloud.com doesn't have an interface to access your Photo Stream. However there are other ways to access the photos if you don't have access to iTunes for syncing. Dropbox The iOS Dropbox app has recently been updated with a feature that can automatically upload all the new photos from your Camera Roll to Dropbox when you open the app. I believe you can ...

As the Apple website reports, iCloud stores your pictures in Photo Stream for 30 days. iCloud manages your Photo Stream efficiently so you don’t run out of storage space on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. If you have Photo Stream enabled on your iOS device, every single photo you take appears in a special Photo Stream album that holds your last ...

It shouldn't. The Camera Roll and your Photo Stream "live" in separate places. I just did a test with this. I placed the same photo in both the Photo Stream and the Camera Roll and then deleted the copy from the Camera Roll. The one in the Photo Stream stayed in place.

I guess with videos and Photo Stream you're out of luck. From the iCloud: Photo Stream FAQ: Does Photo Stream support video? No. Photo Stream only works with photos. With a local backup you could use something like the iOS Backup Extractor to extract the iOS files, including your video. Don't know about iCloud backups and extraction of ...

In iPhoto, turn Photo Stream off then on. Go to Preferences > Photo Stream. Uncheck "Enable Photo Stream". Close the preferences window. Click Photo Stream in the left-hand navigation pane and confirm there are no photos. Turn Photo Stream back on in preferences (check "Enable Photo Stream"). After a few seconds, iPhoto will start to download all the ...

The iCloud Photo Stream FAQ says no - photos only.

How about this: First, backup your iPhoto Library then quite iPhoto. Then, hold down option + command while starting up iPhoto. You should then get a prompt like this: Try selecting all of the options if you have time (it takes a while to repair) or just the last option "Examine and repair iPhoto Library file permissions if you only have a little bit ...

The most native way to access your Photostream is indeed installing the iCloud Control Panel, just like Justwes told you to do. If you are looking for some web-based solution, you should try the freshly updated Dropbox app. It has a feature called Photo Upload, which will enable you to automatically upload (all) your photos from your iPhone to Dropbox. By ...

Just looked a little closer at my settings.... Settings -> General -> Profiles -> [Work Profile] -> More Details -> Disable Documents in the Cloud, iCloud backup, Photo Stream. There's my answer, my company supplied configuration that was loaded on the phone limits this option. C'est la vie...

I found this post after having the same issue - needing to grab an image from Photo Stream that wasn't coming up. I found that I had wandered outside my WiFi range, and had reverted to a 3G connection. Upon reconnecting to my WiFi, Photo Stream immediately updated (and I mean immediately :) I checked this by opening my Photo Stream within the Photos app, ...
