Icloud photostream not updating on pc

i Cloud is an awesome new service for i OS and Mac OS X Lion 10.7.2 and Mountain Lion. The i Cloud Control Panel for Windows icon lives in your system tray.

If you’re running Apple software on a Windows PC, here’s how to make i Cloud work. Launch it from there if you want to go in and select different syncing options. To sync IE bookmarks you’ll need Internet Explorer 8 or higher.

Everything goes up to the cloud these days; Apple’s i Phone and i Pad products can sometimes do it automatically and not everyone understands how it works.

If you’re running Outlook during the install, you’ll receive a notification to close out of it before continuing with the installation. Follow the install wizard and when it’s done, make sure Open the i Cloud Control Panel is checked. To sync Safari Bookmarks and Reader Lists you’ll need Safari 5.1.1 and above. Now you’ll be able to sync data across your PC, Mac, i Phone, i Pad and i Pod Touch.

There’s a bit of work involved with setting it up to work on seamlessly between your Apple devices and Windows. Of course with the release of Windows 10, you might be more inclined to use One Drive since it can sync data across virtually all mobile devices, including i OS and OS X.

If you’re a frequent reader then you may remember my thoughts on Apple’s i Cloud Photo Library beta and my lack of faith in Apple and its ability to keep my photos safe.

Nobody wants to lose photographs of their kids or loved ones because Apple’s cloud solution had a meltdown one day.

You need to decide on which devices you wish to kill i Cloud's syncing.

We warn you though, if you decide to turn it off on all of your devices, all the images previously saved to the i Cloud will be lost.

Missing Album Named “My Photo Stream” I get that the future workflow with the i Cloud Photo Library makes the Camera Roll and My Photo Stream albums obsolete, but the documentation for i OS 8 references the My Photo Stream album specifically: https://help.apple.com/iphone/8/#/iphbfeb468fc Without the “every photo lives on every device” and “edits sync to every device” promises of the i Cloud Photo Library, losing these albums now make it harder to know which photos live on the device and which photos only exist in Photo Stream.

How do I know which photos are only showing up because they are in Photo Stream so I can make sure some are downloaded to the device for safe keeping?

And I just don’t have any expectation of that not happening at some point.

During my time spent testing i Cloud Photo Library I rediscovered one feature that I had actually forgotten about since the days of the i OS 7 betas.

For those who have never looked into it, or like me simply forgot about it, i Cloud Photo Sharing allows anyone with the right hardware and software to effectively create a shared album and then give selected people read and write access to it.
