Hi all,
I am using OS X 10.10.5 and i have Photostream enabled to work with our iPhones.
I would like to clean up the Photos and delete a bunch of them but i am confused of where to delete?
My husband takes pictures on his iPhone, it uploads automatically to Photo Stream.
What is the difference if i delete from Photos or All Photos.
Where do i delete the pictures from?
Do i also have to delete on the iPhone so it does not keep uploading to the iMac?
A little confused here
Thank you

Deleting from Photos

You cannot delete from All Photos, just Photos.

Photo Stream

You can delete all Photo Stream pictures and future sharing by:

on the Mac, going to Photos > Preferences and unticking My Photo Stream

on the phones go to Settings > iCloud > untick My Photo Stream.
