Why does Photostream not take all my photos?

    When I load up iPhoto, there's always a few photos that don't automatically get imported to Photostream and I have to manually do it. What's the deal? Perhaps I should use Google Instant Upload or Dropbox Camera Upload feature instead of Photostream?

    I'm glad I caught this now, I'm not sure how long this has been going on, but this service is hit or miss.

    Not that I've paid enough attention to this to notice it one way or the other, but in my experience, Apple has never done cloud computing well. I'm sad to say this, but if you want a reliable experience, pretty much anyone BUT Apple would get the job done.

    Ya, I've had a few issues. I may as well use the Dropbox feature and just drop it to iPhoto. This is actually the 2nd or 3rd time I noticed this since it launched, but now I'm convinced this is a consistent thing. I think it's time to turn Photostream off. At least with Dropbox, I can send the photos to other people right from the app.

    Yep, agree. Have found this as well. Extremely disappointing as did buy extra storage, my iCloud is mainly pics. The other balls up is the steam will only show 1000 of the "latest" (if they all load!!) what if I want an "old" pic on my iPad? Now use Dropbox and photosync.

    Don't get me started on the camera roll limitations, why oh why add a glorious camera lens in the 4s and with a crap app like camera roll!!

    ok, didn't notice this, may have to be careful now.

    otherwise, i thought almost all my photos sync'ed.

    Don't get me wrong all the pics are in iCloud but from what can see you can't access all of the them from idevices at this stage...photostream.

    Please someone tell me I am wrong, please!!
