Where is photo stream in ios8?
Why should there be Photostream (photos in the cloud) when the whole Photos app is on the cloud now?
Because, with photo stream, it limited the number of photos in the cloud to 1,000. If you use the cloud for all your photos, you have to pay Apple for storage, that's why.
Now, can someone answer my question?
It's better to start a new thread instead of hijacking an existing one.
It's been replaced by iCloud Photos.
Pretty sure photostream is still there. You don't have to enable the iCloud Photo Library.
I'm not hijacking a thread, it's a relevant question. In iOS8, you can either use iCloud to place ALL your photos in the cloud and pay a monthly storage fee, or not use iCloud and then the photo stream is renamed "Recently Added"
Incorrect. It's still there, it's called "Recently added"
So the response to "No camera roll iOS 8" is "Where is photo stream in ios8?". Gotcha. And just a coincidence that none of the subsequent posts are in regarding the camera roll.
Not everyone will have to pay a monthly storage fee. My iCloud photo library is currently 2.1gb. Without a camera roll my iCloud backup is only about 400mb.
All the irrelevant and wrong comments aside, photo stream is an option in settings. You have a choice between iCloud photo and photo stream and when selected, photo stream shows up before as an album. Recently added is the equivalent of the camera roll in that it's just a long scrolling list of photos recently added (within the last thirty days) to your iCloud photo library.
Maybe you should leave the policing of the threads to the moderators. If you don't have an answer to a question that was closely related to the initial question, then just move on to another thread. If you have an answer to the initial question to get the thread "back on track", then, by all means, post it.
That's just it, there is no album called "photostream"
Not exactly. Recently Added does not get cleared when you upload to iPhoto and say "Delete Photos" after the upload. Camera Roll did. Right now I have 842 pictures in my Recently added. However, since I upload today without taking any pictures after my Camera Roll would have 0 pictures. To me this is a huge difference. I manage my photos in iPhoto for Mac (at least until the new Photo App for Mac is release). Once uploaded I move them into Events. Then I Sync to all of my devices. So now I have 842 pictures in Recently Added which are also in the Events section. Duplicated. Of course because of this I really did not like iPhoto Stream.
I think once you upload (and delete) your photos into iPhoto (or similar app) they should be gone from other locally managed folders. Maybe this will happen with the new Photo's App.
Also, somehow the upload into iphoto knows which photos are NEW since my last upload/delete process. But not sure how. I miss Camera Roll because of it.
Lousy answer. So now you don't have to pay for storage for these "Recently added"?
All I want to know is how you add photos you take on your iPhone to a folder that was synced from your computer via iTunes. Been driving me mad.
have you tried turning icloud photo library off?
I've never had it turned on. I have tons of photos so I didn't want them to be uploaded an be charged a storage fee.
Unfortunately the new photos app in iOS 8 doesn't have a photo stream category in events. It is mainly there now to backup photos to other devices for the time being.
Case in point: I can't see my photo stream album on my iPhone, but it does upload into iPhoto on OS X Yosemite PB 2 when I open iPhoto.
Until Nov you can get an additional 50GB. Just an idea if you wanted to test it.
In my opinion it's worth it. You'd have all of your photos accessible on all your devices.
right now. But who knows if that will still be there when the software is released to the public. From the way they are talking about 'all your photos in the cloud' it might be gone, making this is temp feature just for the developers
Have you checked settings to ensure my photo stream is turned on? If it's off, turn it on and restart the device.
It's possible that photo stream mayb be borked in the betas anyway and you'll have to wait for GM for proper functionality.
Does iOS 8 address the mess with video syncing over wifi or through photostream?
Videos upload to iCloud Photo Library and appear on all devices.
Great! I take it we'll have to wait for Photos for Mac to be released? Also, is it only storing in the cloud and I still manually have to import them to my local photos app on my iMac?
Appleinsider claimed they'd be accessible from a browser but I haven't seen that reported anywhere else.
The way it seems to work is that you're asked if you want to store them on your device and cloud or keep thumbnails on your device and store hi-res versions on iCloud. Since we haven't seen a Photos For Mac beta I'm not sure how it'll work on there.
