What exactly is "PC photostream"?
And where is it written that it should sync with iCloud?

Photostream is when you take a photo on iphone or ipad it streams through icloud to all other things that are set up. ie ipad, ipod, PC.

I have icloud and Photostream on my PC, Macbook Air and iphone and they are all supposed to sinc. Macbook Air and iphone sincs but nothing gets updated on my PC. I have checked all the settings and followed instructions found on Forums but still can not get it to work. I must be missing something.

So PC Photostream is a program from Apple that you installed on your PC?

I checked all my settings are they were all correct. The only thing I hadn't known was from PC to Ipad I had to open from Pictures/Photostream/and pop desired photo into the Uploads folder. Without changing anything it also started working from Ipad to PC.

Thank you for taking the trouble to try and help.
