    Took my iPad back to best buy today because light was leaking out when you look at it fom a certain angle. They replaced it and I restored it. Now I see I have all my photos there in photo stream but doesn't let me delete them. How do I delete them?

    The only way to delete them out of photostream is to delete them out of the folder they sync to on your Mac/Windows computer. I have a Windows 7 machine and it is located in the pictures folder labeled "photostream". I would assume it does something similar on the Mac, but don't have one handy to check right now.

    There is no official option to delete individual photos from the photo stream. You can reset the entire stream if you want, though.

    Log into iCloud.com, click on your name in the top right, and goto Advanced.

    There is a way to delete all or even individual pictures from photo stream. I have done it myself. OP which OS are you using? Either way it can be done!

    It sounds like you're deleting them off of the computer after it's sync'ed with the stream. If so, that still leaves them in the stream, no? Meaning those photos, even though deleted from the computer, are still on all of your iOS devices, and will also sync to any new computer you put the stream on?

    You cannot, at this point, delete an individual photo from Photo Stream. As noted above, you can only reset the entire Photo Stream. Follow the instructions in the link above. This has been beaten to death on the forum. Hopefully, Apple will have a remedy soon.
