10.7: Unanticipated but welcome behavior in Photostream
Authored by: rmanke on Oct 24, '11 10:42:20AM

Is there any way to delete the photos in the iCloud stream?

Sometimes I take a bunch of photos for tests, and they end up being there forever!

Well, not forever.
Either for 30 days or up to 1000 flicks.
Then old pics get auto-deleted from the stream.

And you can't delete individual images. You can only reset Photo Stream and thus delete everything (not the saved pics of course).

As I see it, Apple should change the current behaviour and implement two ways of file deletion in Photo Stream:

1) If a user deletes a picture that picture gets deleted in iCloud and then on all devices
2) Auto-deletion only deletes in iCloud (in Photo Stream)

You can't delete from Photostream. They don't stay there forever, though. Photostream only goes back 30 days. After 30 days those photos are gone.

You can reset your Photostream to delete everything and start over. Log in to iCloud and do it from your account settings, I think.
