Photostream only stores up to a 1000 photos. And will purge any photos that are older than 30 days from the stream.

Photostream is not a backup solution.

Thanks for the response...

I understand about photostream, so you are saying there is no way of uploading my family photos to the icloud for storage/safe keeping? I thought that was what icloud was all about, not just recent photos....hmmmmm:confused:

If your photos are on your iPhone and you backup your iPhone to iCloud then they are there... Not an ideal backup solution...

Hopefully iCloud will get better and offer us a iDisk type solution as it did in MobileMe. Until then picas and like solutions???
