I want to be able to share my photo stream with family.  I have never used photo stream before.  But the Help menu tells me once I have the photos uploaded I can "add invitees" by selecting the photo stream on the left and then clicking on the info button on the bottom right.  Then there should be a place to "add invitees" but there is not. When I click the info button the right side bar opens up but it just has the normal info that is there when you look at a picture- location, file name, etc.  The only difference is when no individual picture is selected it says "These photos were downloaded from the photo stream".  Please help me- I'm betting this one is user error and I just don't know how to do it, but the help menu isn't really helping.

    Sounds like you are looking at your photo stream album.  You first have to create a shared photo stream.  Search iPhoto help for "Create a shared photo stream" to see how.  After create your shared photo stream album, you can then select it, click on Info, then type the email address(es) of the people you want to invite in the "Shared With" section and press enter.  Note: click on Turn on Public Website if any of your subscribers do not have iCloud accounts.
