    Hi. I have shared some Photo Streams with other people and recently had to reset my iCloud account on my Mac to resolve an issue related to documents syncing. After resetting my iCloud account, all Documents, Reminders, Notes etc. and also my own Photo Stream (with all the pictures I take with my iDevices) did sync back to my Mac correctly, with the exception of these shared Photo Streams. I still have them on my iDevices and the people I have shared the Streams with do also still have them. But in my own iPhoto app on the Mac these shared Photo Stream albums were empty. I still could see the album "placeholder" icon and new photos added after the iCloud reset do appear there. But none of the previously shared does.

    Is there a way to re-download or re-sync them again? It's actually quite annoying that they are not there any more...

    I'm also having this issue. Has anyone found a way to re-download Shared Photo Streams from iCloud? It seems like something that should be easy, but....
