iCloud, Photostreams and iPhoto - oh my!
So I have a question that hopefully someone around here can answer.
I love the iCloud/Photostream/iPhoto combination working together seamlessly. However I've run into an issue on the Mac version of iPhoto. My Photostreams don't get updated unless iPhoto is open.
I find myself looking for a photo to upload/attach in a web form, then I remember that iPhoto isn't running. So I have to fire up iPhoto, wait a good 3-5 minutes for all the pics to download, then I can attach whatever photo I need.
Wasn't the whole point of iCloud to make the content available on all devices? I wouldn't exactly call it "available" if I have to wait 5 minutes every time I want to look for a picture I took
Leaving iPhoto open is an option, but it's such a resource hog. I don't understand how people with larger photo libraries than me can use it. I only have a few thousand pictures and it's pretty slow.

iCloud is a central repository for data. It _can_ push data to your devices, but that doesn't mean everything gets pushed.
In the case of Photostreams, it requires iPhoto be open to download data from iCloud. There is no "background" downloading going on with iPhoto and photo streams.
I agree, perhaps this should be an option, but I'm afraid there probably isn't a way around this.
I figured I'd at least try to help, even if it wasn't the answer you were looking for.
