Setting up Photo Stream

I recently purchased the new Apple TV and I am trying to figure out how to set up photo stream. I figured it would just pull from my iPhoto pictures on my MBP but it looks like it is pulling pictures from an old iPhone that my 10 year old daughter plays with. Needless to say my photo stream sucks right now.

when you take a photo on one device, it automatically appears on all your other devices. No syncing. No sending. Your photos are just there. Everywhere you want them.
it's pretty much working as it should.

Well that helped a little. It appears I do not have our iPhones storing photos in the cloud. Same holds true with my MBP. My MBP is the only one I am concerned about but I do not see where I can activate my photos into the cloud on my MBP. Do I need to upgrade to Lion to do this? I am currently using Snow Leopard. Is my iPhoto outdated? I am using '08.

Change the settings in the old iPhone that your daughter is using so her pictures don't get backed up in iCloud.

Go into the iCloud settings and turn off photo stream on the old phone.

I bought it but it looks like I still need cloud access. Do I need Lion for that or can I get it through Snow Leopard?

I have not kept up with the SL updates, but I think 10.6.9 has iCloud support. If you go to System Preferences and see "iCloud" under Internet and Wireless, you're good.
