You have to delete them from iCloud, log in and click your user name top right a new box opens, now click advanced and follow the prompts.
Maybe they will alter this, but it was the only way I could delete my photos.Macbook White 2010, Mac OS X (10.7.1), iPod - iPhone iOS 5

Your welcome, I am sure Apple will push out some updates re iCloud soon. But it is early days.

Just log in to iCloud www.icloud.com then follow my first post.

It looks like you cannot delete individual photos, but rather delete all that are in the Photo Stream.
Here is where I found the info: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4890?viewlocale=en_US&locale=en_US.
Here is what it says:
You can reset your Photo Stream any time by visiting your account view on icloud.com. Resetting Photo Stream will remove all Photo Stream photos from your iCloud account. It will not remove any photos that have already been downloaded to your iOS device or computer.
To Reset your Photo Stream, follow these instructions:
- From a computer browser, go to icloud.com and sign in.
- Click on your name on the iCloud home page (this is the page that shows all the app icons). If you do not see your name, click the cloud icon in the top left of the page.
- Click Advanced.
- Here you will see the Reset Photo Stream button. Clicking this button will remove all your Photo Stream photos from iCloud. Once removed, they cannot be recovered, but you can re-upload any photos you'd like to restore to your Photo Stream from a Mac or PC.
After resetting your Photo Stream, you can also remove any photos that have been downloaded to your device or computers. To do this, follow the directions below:
- On your iOS device, you can remove photos from the Photo Stream view by turning off Photo Stream and then optionally turning it back on. You can do this at Settings > iCloud > Photo Stream.If you added any Photo Stream photos to other albums or the Camera Roll on your iOS device, you can locate and delete these photos manually, if desired.
- On your Mac, you can clear cached photos from the Photo Stream view in iPhoto or Aperture by turning off Photo Stream and then optionally turning it back on. You can do this in each application by visiting Preferences > Photo Stream.If you had Automatic Import enabled in your Photo Stream settings, your Photo Stream photos were also imported to your iPhoto or Aperture Library, and will remain after you disable Photo Stream. If you would like to delete any of these photos from your library, you can to do so manually any time you like.
- On your PC, you can remove Photo Stream photos by deleting them from your designated Photo Stream Download Folder. By default, this folder is located at C:\Users\Apple\Pictures\Photo Stream\My Photo Stream.

This procedure does not work as everyone if finding out. You get this message from Apple:
Could Not Reset Photo Stream
Your Photo Stream could not be reset at this time due to a server error. Try again later.
Unfortunately, "later" never happens...

Have never had this message from Apple always works fine for me, prior to logging in to iCloud have you turned off photo stream on your Mac and all iOS devices?

I scheduled a phone call with Apple Tech Support and the technician had not heard of this either. She then took about 5 minutes to research and found this was happening with Internet Explorer. Funny how Microsoft and Apple still like to mess with each other...
As soon as I performed the same directions with Firefox, the reset worked.

Good to hear you have had success, I only use Safari and as backup Camino.

Thanks! This was VERY helpful & a simple fix! I would have never thought that by clicking on my name another menu would come up!

I take it you need help with icloud and photo stream, but what exactly?
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 24, 2012 9:00 AM (in response to oldscribe)
I just followed your instructions and deleted all Photo Stream photos from my iPhone. Success! Thank you. I guess we have to wait for updades where you can delete selected photos, but not the whole batch.
My question is that I don't see any photo gallery in iCloud on my computer, although I can reset PhotoStream by clicking on my name (as per your instructions). I run Leopard on a four year old Macbook, and recently merged my MobileMe account into iCloud--the weird thing is that there is still a MobileMe gallery elsewhere, not merged. I suspect the problem is that my iTunes/iPhoto programs are older (although iTunes gets regular updates), and they don't have iCloud or Photo Stream options in preferences or anywhere. Any insight or hope for a fix? I can't afford a new computer for a while. This is what my new iCloud account shows (no photo album):
