    Thanks, ermaly.  The thing is, I haven't deleted photos from Photo Stream via any of my devices in about a week, but every morning I have to Turn On Photo Stream in iPhoto on my MBP.

    Well than probably I was wrong... This bug is driving me nuts as I use iphoto and photostream a lot. Or at least I used...

    I followed the deleting of plist files and this solved my issue for now.


    I have quit iPhoto and re-launched several times and Photostream is still enabled.

    I have deleted a photo from photostream and quit / relaunched and still OK

    I am now rebooting and testing.


    I just updated OSX Lion with all available updates today _before_ performing the deletion of plist files.

    I did not reboot my system after applying updates / performing plist deletions.




    After rebooting, photostream was turned off - this didnt' really surprise me - for a few reasons:


    1. After deleting plist files and re-launching iPhoto photostream was still enabled - I would have expected it to be off and for me to have to re-enable it.

    2. After deleting plist files and re-launching iPhoto the aforementioned deleted files were not regenerated


    After rebooting and finding photostream turned off I re-enabled it

    Checked ~/Library/Preferences and the plist files I previously deleted had returned - created today

    I quit iPhoto and re-launched - Photostream still enabled


    Am now rebooting again


    Launching iPhoto shows photostream disabled again.

    For some reason I can't edit my post again.




    Quit iPhoto

    Open System Preferences

    In iCloud disable photostream

    Quit Sys Prefs

    Re-launch Sys Prefs

    Enable Photostream

    Launch iPhoto - photostream is enabled



    Launch iPhoto - photostream disabled


    Basically, a reboot kills photostream on my Macbook.


    For what it's worth, I have the following using iCloud:


    Macbook Pro

    Mac Mini

    iPad 1st Gen

    iPhone 4S


    The only device _NOT_ using Photostream is my 1st Gen iPad - I wonder if having one device disabled (in terms of photostream) is causing this??


    Photostream seems fine on my iPhone however i'm fairly certain my Mac Mini exhibits the same issue as my MBP.


    Does anyone else have a device that isn't using Photostream but is using the same iCloud account? clutching at straws here.. seems odd this is only affecting iCloud enabled OSX hosts (atleast in my instance).

    If I say 'no' to photostream when I launch iPhoto, then all of my streamed photos appear in iPhoto as events such as 'June 2012 Photo Stream'. I only noticed this today but my most recent photos were there (as well as all my earlier ones) - so the photos are being streamed to iPhoto.


    But because I've been fussing with why I was being asked to enable photostream on launch and thinking what a waste of time it was to wait for everything to be streamed again, I didn't check to see if my streamed photos were in events even if I did enable photostream at launch.


    Has anyone else noticed this (sorry, haven't reasd through all of the posts on this topic)

    What helped for me was


    1. Open your user's Library folder
    2. Navigate to Application Support
    3. Find&Delete the folder "iLifeAssetManagement"
    4. Restart your computer


    Now I was able to activate Photostream within the Prefs of iPhoto.

    I'm having the same problem. I've tried every solution mentioned in this thread (expect the complete re-install of Lion) but nothing worked.

    The problem occurs on my iMac. I own a MacBook pro as well, but this does not have the issue.


    Any suggestion is welcome, it is very irritating.

  • MikeChrista Level 1 (15 points)

    I too have tried the various solutions mention in this thread to no avail.  Have also just update to Iphoto 9.3 and the problem still exists!!  On top of that 9.3 is VERY SLOW!!!

  • damongaspee Level 1 (0 points)

    Just to add strength to numbers, I am also experiencing this issue. It's SO frustrating to open my iPhone and not find the images I expected.


    (2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo MacBook Pro, OS 10.7.4, iPhoto 9.3)

    Do you have more than one iPhoto Library?  Photostream can be active in only one library at a time.  So if you activate it in one library the next library opened will have it turned off.



  • MikeChrista Level 1 (15 points)

    I only have a single iPhoto Library.

  • Old Toad Level 10 (135,413 points)

    Maybe you should revert to iPhoto 9.2.3 via this method by iPhoto Library Manager: Fat Cat Software - iPhoto Library Manager Help - Downgrading a library to an earlier version of iPhoto


    And wait a while before trying 9.3 again. 

  • R. Polmans Level 1 (0 points)

    I own 3 macs, so I have 3 iPhoto librarys. All works well on only one of them, on the other two I keeps turning off, evenif I use only the library on one of them. (all computers off, enable photostream on a Mac with non working photostream, reboot and photstream is turned off again)


    All macs heve the same OS, iPhoto version and Apple ID.
