Nearly every time I reboot my Mac, Aperture asks me if I want to use Photostream in Aperture when I click the Photostream icon. I'm not sure if this is an iCloud bug or an Aperture bug but it's really annoying because each time it has to re-download all of my photostream photos. Does anybody know about a fix?

MacBook, Mac OS X (10.7.2), Unibody MacBook 2.4 Ghz, 8 GB Ram

    You have Photo Stream selected in System Preferences > iCloud ??

    I have the exact same problem. Aperture Photostream seems to turn itself off randomly. In Aperture's Photostream preferences I have unticked "Automatic Upload" as I don't want Aperture to automatically send, say, my latest batch of 300 imported 12 mpx RAW pics to the cloud. Could have something to do with that.

    Just want to chime in that I was having this problem from the very beginning of using Photostream on Aperture (meaning from the first day Aperture started supporting iCloud). Photostream just turns itself off without any reason at all..

    No idea what might be possibly happening, but that's a very annoying problem.

    Same here. Problem persists after updating to 3.2.2. Apple claimed the problem appeared when you reached the 1000 pics limit and that it was fixed in the update. But obviously it wasn't (or there are multiple issues that need to be fixed).

    It continues to be a source of frustration for me. I use Aperture daily, and I was and am still looking forward to Photostream becoming a useful part of my workflow. But for now, it's hit and miss and mostly miss.

    I have Aperture, latest version, and my wife uses iPhoto, atest version as well


    on our iMac, it does not happen, Aperture or iPhoto Photostream don't turn off after a reboot or a log out


    On our MacBook Pro, it is very different, both photostream (aperture and iPhoto) turn off after logging out,


    Tried everything as you did, no solution yet


    Can't see the reason why I have the problem on one machine and not the other


    iMac is 2009, MBP is 2011, system is 10.7.2


    To answer your question !

    Same problem here. It doesn't always happen, I'd say maybe 60% of the time I reboot. Can't say whether it happens with iPhoto too since I don't use iPhoto, but Aperture's Photostream compatability appears to be horribly broken.


    Sort it out Apple!

    I donl't have a fix but this issue is going to cause logistical problems with pix missing. Or, slightly less awful, duplicates all over the place.

    I think I shall turn it off and ask Apple to email me when they get it working.
