Just installed iPhoto 11, and photo stream will not work.  I have it runing on my iPhone and iPad successfully.  It says it cannot connect.  All the settings are the same for the devices.


Getting really frustrated with iPhoto 11 & Mountain Lion.  Mac used to be simple, not so much, anymore.

iPhoto '11, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2), Mac user from the cave man era.

    Make sure you are logged in in the iCloud system preferences and that PS is enabled in the iPhoto preferences - for complete instructions and software requirements for different features -

    Hi K8t8,


    In your System Preferences, next to Photo Stream checkbox, there is an "Options" button. Just want to make sure that you have clicked on that, and checked the photo stream options there....
