    Any way to add people to a photostream once created, or delete a photostream? I have one called Friends now with no one added to it, as well as one called test that I can't delete.

    Just tap the blue arrow next to the shared photo stream and that's all the settings for it

    Wow, I feel stupid. :eek: I looked all over the web trying to figure out how to view an album on the web. Sneaky option buttons!

    Share Photo Stream?

    I shared a photo stream with my boyfriend who also upgraded to ios 6. Checked his photo streams and it's not in there.

    What is the correct way to share/accept a photo stream?

    Does he have shared photo streams turned on in his icloud settings? It's not on by default.

    Yes, but the album isn't showing up in his photo stream

    Adding pictures

    What are your guys's thoughts about apple adding the ability for other people in the photo stream to add their own photos to the album? I guess I assumed too much by thinking this was already included and was a bit disappointed to learn it wasn't.

    Hmmm.

    I think that would make ownership of the photo stream a lot more complicated and confusing. If five people add their photos to a shared stream, presumably they can only delete their own photos? Can the photo stream creator delete other's photos? Is the creator of the photo stream allowed to delete the entire stream if others own the photos in it?

    I think Apple intentionally introduces these features bit by bit so as not to confuse people. Also because their documentation is crap ;).

    I also thought this would be included. Shame it's not as this would have been perfect for an event I have coming up soon.

    They could have a setting so that the owner/creator can decide if it is view only or if others can add to it, in which case anyone in the photo stream could remove any photos.

    I agree with letting anyone edit the stream. I was wanting to set one up with close college friends to share the "good times" we have together over the years. I think its fair to let anyone add or remove from the stream so that they can take down any pictures that they don't approve.

    Basically like a shared message in Facebook only with pictures.

    I'm not getting shared photo stream notifications.
