I want a family stream where everyone can upload pictures. We can't have 12 different streams. It would appear logical and useful. There seem to be no app that allows you to solve this very basic situation.

iOS 6.1

    Why not use a Sharing service, like Flickr or SmugMug?

    Only if they are all logged in to the same iCloud account.

    Sorry, not sure what you're on about. Apple aren’t here. You're only talking to other users. What other application are you referring to? Flickr and SmugMug are web services accessed via web browser. You already have one of those, we can surmise, as you've managed to post here. Uploading to Flickr does not require a purchase. Other than that, I suggest you request a feature from Apple:

     

    iPhoto menu -> Provide iPhoto Feedback

     

    I wouldn't demand it. It's not like you have a right to it. The machine and software you bought as is. If you misunderstood what it does, that's your problem.

    As an addition to my last post create a new iCloud account and have everyone log into it.  On Macs you switch iCloud accounts by going to the System/iCloud preference pane, log out of iCloud account A and log into the common iCloud account. 

     

    You are aware that a photo in a Photo Stream will be there for only 30 days or until the number of photos exceed 1000, right.  Then it will be replaced by the next photo. However, permanent Photo Streams, either private or public can be created as shown in this screenshot:

    On the iPhone you can email photos to Flickr without purchasing any extra software. The Flickr app for iPhone is free...

    Use can use groups if you use Mail as your email client instead of iPhoto.  Also Mail has photo stationary similar to the themes that iPhoto has.
