Photostream has simply shut down.

Everything is enabled on both the iMac and iPad.

iCloud is set up correctly, the cloud sync iMac>iPad is working for everything except Photostream.

I load folders into iPhoto (11, v.9.4.2) , they show up, everything else is working fine... but photostream has no photos in either the desktop or the iPad.

Any suggestions?

    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. That should jump start Photo Stream.

    On the iPad to to the Camera Roll (that's what it's called on the iPhone) select the photo you want in the Photo Stream in the Camera Roll and and click on the lower left icon


    and then click on the Photo Stream button in the next window:



    That will manually put the photos in the PS and get them into your iPhoto library.  But be sure to set iPhoto's PS preferences to this:
