I have numerous, maybe all, of the photos in my photo stream are duplicated.  One file name is upper case, then duplicated in lower case.  I revealed the photos in Finder, and you can see the duplicate photo example below.  On file is IMG_1072.JPG and the other is img_1072.jpg.  The timestamp of the files are hours apart.

 

Anyone else experiencing this anomaly?

    Are the files the same size?

    I'd be looking at No. 3, as I note the file names are lower case...

    There's no way to use Photostream with a Referenced Library, so when you do your step 3, you're importing a second copy of the image.

    Apologies, I've been working on the basis that your issue was the files being duplicated in iPhoto not in Photostream. D'oh! as Homer Simpson might say.

     

    iPhoto -> Preferences -> Photostream. Is Automatic Upload checked?
