    I am not sure if there is a thread about this or not but I am curious if anybody knows how to delete pictures in the photo stream album?

    You have to wait for iOS5.1. In this new firmware you are able to delete photo stream pictures.

    I couldn't ever find a way to delete certain pictures, but you can disable Photostream on all of your devices and computer to remove ALL Photostream images from iCloud. It's very odd that Apple would put out an unfinished product like this. I mean come on, you can't delete a photo? Personally I will not use Photostream until you can delete photos from the gallery.

    I agree. I used Photostream at first, but then disabled it. It's the only think I don't use for iCloud. The inability to delete any photo plus having Photostream throw in a bunch of deleted photos - bad, bad. When the update to 5.0.1 shows up, it's supposed to have this situation resolved. We'll see. Until then, I'm not using it at all.

    5.0.1 has been around for months.
    Do you mean (5.0.2 or 5.1)?
    You should proof read before submitting. :)

    Ya. 5.1 was what I meant. Sorry - wasn't thinking.

    Actually surprised there are no jailbreak tweaks for this yet. Hope to see one soon, as my 5.0.1 JB is worlds better than stock, and far better than 5.1 as well. No new features in 5.1, besides obviously, PhotoStream deleting.

    I have gone through all of the steps to delete my iCloud pics on my iOS devices and it has not worked. I first logged into my iCloud and deleted the pics, then went to my iOS devices and turned off iCloud and deleted pictures. I turn the iCloud back on on the iOS devices and the same photos pop right back up.

    Am I doing something wrong? Doesn't seem logical that if I delete the pics from iCloud that they would reload to my iOS devices.

    All I can say is that it is lucky Steve Died when he did so he didn't have to see this junk!
