Can not get PC photostream to sync photos with Macbook air or iphone or vice versa. Macbook Air, iphone, and ipod touch are all syncing properly. Any help would be appreciated

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.
