So, I have the iPhone 4 S and have been using it to take pictures. The only viable way to get pics off (to my knowledge) is to email them to myself. Then it clicked, I have iCloud and Photo Stream is turned on. So I go to iPhoto and there is no Photo Stream option. I am running Lion, and unless Lion came with iLife 2011 (which I don't think it did), I am using the previous version of iPhoto. Is this the reason why can't use Photo stream?

Yea if you are using iLife 09 then it wont' work, it needs to be the most recent version of iPhoto '11.

Yea, Photo Stream alone is worth it. You can even set it up to where they automatically import into iPhoto (they get stored as monthly photo stream events with this enabled)

I actually think photo stream is pretty useless right now since most people still connect their iPhones to their computers to sync. It would really enjoy it if they gave me the option to manually remove photos from the folder, instead of going through the hassle of turning off photo stream, which also deletes everything on there. I can't imagine there not being an update for this feature.

Actually PhotoStream is great - and very useful. I've been using it every day. I do want more control over it though - and then it will be an excellent feature.

I like it. It's backing up your last 1000 photos and simultaneously keeping any device logged into iCloud with that Apple ID synced with photos that you've taken. The reason iTunes syncing is nowhere near this Photo Stream is done via Wifi at any location so you can be outside your home network taking pictures that will already be there when you get back, plus if they are there and you lose your phone at least they have been transferred to other devices at that point without you having to do anything. Would be nice to delete pictures out of Photo Stream that you don't want, hopefully that will be a feature soon.

Well you can delete them it's just a pain. You have to delete the photo's off your device and then reset Photostream via your iCloud account but this deletes all the photos and not individuals.

Well, as they say, there's an app for that! I use PhotoSync for pics and video. Works via WiFi to transfer between iDevices and computer. Very easy to transfer single or multiple photos/videos.

Another option would have been to simply buy iPhone '11 on its own for $15.

I've already bought iLife '11 (Family pack) and the salesmen in me gave both of brothers a copy for a small fee. So it was basically free for me.
