Where do the photostream/iCloud photos go?

    I just noticed that any pics I take (on ios5) go into the camera roll and also into an album called 'PhotoStream". Are these the ones that auto-back up to iCloud? If so, has anyone found a way to get them online yet, on their mac? I want to see how fast they back up to icloud, and if I can email them from icloud directly and not from the phone.

    I dont think the webbased part of it is set up yet. That might be coming soon, so when iCloud is released in the fall, we might be able to get those photos.

    I found the solution

    In the iPhoto preferences you must turn on photostream. Then the photos will show up in iPhoto.

    Why did you revive a 5 month old thread?

    But what about other 1250 threads with unanswered questions back from 2004?
