    Where is the Photo Stream greyed out?  In iPhoto on your Mac? Online? ???


    This is from Apple's document iCloud: Purchasing iCloud storage and billing



    iCloud customers are provided with 5 GB of free cloud storage. Purchased music, movies, TV shows, apps, and books, as well as photos in your Photo Stream don't count against your 5 GB of free storage.

    It's used for:

    your mail, documents, account information, and the iOS settings and app data that are automatically backed up by iCloud. - from: iCloud: Check available email storage


    You can change your iCloud email account preferences (under Mailbox behaviors and Advanced) to not store deleted messages online and other changes to reduce the space usage.
