ICloud :: Photostream On New IMac Says It Is Downloading 26,000 Pictures
Apr 15, 2012
I just purchased a new iMac. I moved my iPhoto library over from my MacBook. Then I enabled Photostream and now it says it is downloading 26,000 pictures to photostream. It has been spinning (in process) for a long time.
Our company recently switched to MacBook Pro computers.† When I got mine I took it on vacation and uploaded pictures on it, and have the pictures on iCloud through PhotoStream.† My company then installed software that encrypts the Mac, and also has a policy where I can't install iPhoto.
I can still see the pictures through my iPad on PhotoStream which is good.† Is there any way possible to download my pictures from PhotoStream to another computer?I've tried to do it using my wife's MacBook Pro (and setting it with my iCloud settings), and on a PC laptop, but it seems like if it's in iCloud, and the computer you're on didn't upload it, you can't download it or even see it.
How do I select only the photos I want to photo stream, whenever I delete the ones I don't want it automatically adds a whole bunch more that I don't want. I would like to drag only selected pictures to photo stream but that doesn't seem to be an option.
I imported a photo into iPhoto. If I click on it, click actions and share to Photostream, I get a message saying it is already in Photostream. Yet, it does not show up in the iPhoto Photostream folder on my Mac. Nor does it show up in my iPhone Photostream folder. I believe I have iCloud set up properly on both devices and have configured iPhoto correctly. Is there something I can do to force a sync?
I dont see photostream on iCloud on my iMac, though it works wonderfully on my other devices iPhone and iPad. I also can't see any related setting in iCloud, except to reset photo stream, which deletes all photos currently on it.
I'm suspecting the answer is NO. I have pictures that are shared via Photostream, appearing on both my iPhone and my iPad. My wife has her own iPhone & ID. and it would be really nice if our photos could all be part of one big happy family, with my photos appearing on her iPhone and vice-versa. ¬†
As I said...even though I never used MobileMe, looks like something I really wish could happen.
I created a shared photostream at one time named Family...it was shared by me.¬† It still shows in iCloud on both my mac and my iOS devices.¬† I have tried to delete it via the photos app in iOS and via iPhoto on my mac....it deletes and then reappears in a few moments.¬† It is an empty stream that I created to test but I cannot get rid of it...
I have a question about photostream.¬† Is it true that ALL photos in my photo stream are permanently saved in iPhoto (even without me moving into events which i would probably do twice a month)?¬† If the event i can't move photo's from the photostream in iphoto to events, are they ALWAYS saved on my mac drive even there there is a 1000/30 day limit in photostream?
Info: iPhoto '11, Mac OS X (10.7.3), iCloud/iPhoto
Recently upgraded to Lion and activated/registered photostream in preferences on my Mac after migrating from mobile me to iCloud but the Photostream app is not showing up online. When I choose to share photos in iPhoto the images load into the photostream upload in iPhoto but nothing shows up in iCloud. Email, Calender and Contacts are working.¬†
Info: iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.3), 2.8 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
I needed to delete 2 pictures from ICloud, with 5.1 and higher this should have been as simple as right clicking and choosing deleteIt did not work, followed directions for resetting ICloud, it said existing pictures already saved on Imac would not be deleted, after reset just send pictures from your device back to Photo Stream, it deleted all pictures that I had in IPhoto that I had pushed to Photo Stream icloud, how can this happen and how do I get my pictures back.
With [url]... I could invite friends/family to view pictures/video uploaded to my Mobile.me account. Now that the latter has been replaced with iCloud, I don't appear to have this valuable feature, I don't even see the iPhoto icon when I log into my [url]... account from Safari.†
I have been using iCloud/photo stream ever since I got my iPhone which was about 2 years ago, but whenever I go on my computer and access my pictures on iCloud, it never displays all the photos I've taken, it only displays photos from up to two months ago. How¬† can i access all my pictures?
Is it possible to upload all the pictures in my iphoto library to the cloud ? If I can do that, can I delete the pictures from my Mac (is the cloud will store the pictures) ? Then, how can acess these pictures ?
