Having set my iPhone and iPad and iMac to PhotoShare/ PhotoStream I'm having issues creating Events in iPhoto.  I like events.!

 

There are pics in PhotoStream that do not and will not appear in Events.  Why.? How.?  Frustrations.!!!

    DO you have the iPhoto preference set to import PS photos into events?

     

    What version of the OS and of iPhoto?

    I also have this problem.  In iPhoto 11 version 9.4.2 (the latest) on my mac, the photos appear in the left nav bar under photostream.  But when I go to events, there is an event called "November" with no photos in it. Running OSX 10.7.5 on my mac.  My iPhone is running iOS 6.0.1.  All Photostream sharing options on all devices are ON.

    Do a search in the Events Mode for "Photo Stream".  That will find any photo stream that was automatically imported.

    Then check to see if the search included your photos.

     

    To jump start Photo Stream log out of iCloud in the System/iCloud preference pane and disable Photo Stream in iPhoto's Photo Share preference pane.  Then log back in and re-enable, respectively.  See if that will repopulate your Photo Streams.

    Okay, did all that.  No help.  The search did not turn up the most recent photo stream. Logged out of iCloud (pain in the a@# because I have documents stored there), turned off photo stream in iPhoto, logged back in, turned on again, and Photostream repopulated iPhoto in exactly the same way as before (i.e., no event--but photostream in the left nav column).  Only thing I noticed is a little wireless icon in the photos in photostream.  Here's a picture:Screen1.jpg

    See the little wireless icon in the bottom left corner?  Here's another picture:

    There is no Nov. photostream event.  WHY?????  Do I actually have to plug in my device?  I thought the purpose of Photostream was....

    Ask in the iCloud forum.  There are a couple of users there that are quite knowledgeable about iCloud and may have another solution to suggest.

    I had this problem too.  I tried the fix turning photostream on and off and then rebooting the system.  The photostream photos all re-imported, but I couldn't see the photostream in events. 

     

    However, the missing photos *did* appear within some pre-existing events.  I then split them out and put them in the right place. 

     

    I haven't yest tested additional photostream content.
