    PLEASE HELP! I've got a few pictures stored in a cloud somewhere and I really need them deleted. I've gone to the photostream part in settings, and disabled it, and also in the iCloud settings, I deleted all of the pictures from the photosteam in there too, but when I went to enable it again, the photo re-appeared in my photosteam, this obviously means that they are still being stored in iCloud, and I need them deleted, Can anyone please help me ASAP? Thanks!


    Oh, and I'm using an iPad 2, I don't have a laptop at hand as I've left it at my other house! Need them deleted tonight!

    You can only delete all the pictures on photo stream. You have to go to via a computer or an app like Mercury with the browser identified to chrome or something similar. Then login, click your name in top right and go to advanced and then reset photo stream.

    I believe the images album will reappear once you put more pictures into the camera roll.

    Also, not sure if resetting photo stream deletes pictures that's already been downloaded to a computer. Stories I've heard bout this before always involved people wanting pictures off their iDevices, not from computers they don't have in front of them. Anyone know how that works?

    Click on your name on the top right, hit advanced and you'll see it there. And don't take pictures of your genitalia again ;-)

    I still have 550 photos from an engagement session that was never even added to my stream, yet they are on my photostream on my phone. Very annoying.
