    Can subscribers of a photo stream not also add photos? Only the owner can?

    Trying to figure that out also. Really hoping they add that option soon if they haven't yet. :D

    I've already set up 2 shared streams.. 1 for family and 1 for work buddies.

    If they can't add photos to the stream it would kind of kill the point... :(

    That is a really good question. My buddy and I will test it in a few minutes. I really like shared photo stream. I think it's one of the unsung great features of iOS 6.

    From what I've read it's only one to one/many. It's not a group album. So if someone wanted to share photos with you they'd have to set up their own stream.

    Everything I have read so far indicates that others cannot add to your shared photostream album. Think of it like a Facebook album, you can add photos that your friends/subscribed can see but they cannot also add to that album. When you add photos, they get notified. But you control the content. If you delete any photos, they are also deleted from the devices of those who are subscribed to your shared Photostream.

    It's basically, you control the content and they get to see it.

    That's a head scratcher if that is the case. I was under the impression otherwise.

    Does anyone know if it's possible to view/change the people who are allowed to see a shared photo stream?

    Yeah, go into the Photos app, at the bottom you'll see
    Albums - Photo Stream - Places
    tabs, tap Photo Stream and in there will be your shared Streams, if you click on them it brings up your subscribers, you can add or delete them right there.

    Thanks
