    I had thought that Apple boasted that iCloud would hold all of your photos, and that this wouldn't count toward your 5GB. Now iPhoto tells me that it will only upload that past 30 days of photos.

    Am I missing something? Is there a way to get Photostream to upload and sync all of your photos?

    I'm not sure at all about this. But I would guess it backup your camera roll and whatever other photo albums you made via regular iCloud backup. Not to be confused with sharing or Photostream.

    On your iPod Touch and iPhones, is there a Photostream folder?

    (sorry, didn't mean to thread jack, just had that question on my mind and I didn't want to start a new one)

    When you take a pic on your IOS device it will save in Photostream and camera roll. Its only a limited back up just to cover you from deleting photos etc and gives you a chance to move them over to your mac/PC etc.
