I previously just had an iPhone and iMac. When I added photos to either device, they uploaded to iCloud and appeared on both. When I did this from my iPhone to my iMac, it worked fine, and my iMac automatically imported the photos from my Photo Stream to my library.


I just got the new MacBook Air. I transferred my iPhoto Library through Finder. Everything works fine. When I add a photo from my iPhone to Photo Stream, it appears on the Photo Stream on both of my Macs and both automatically import it. However, if I add a photo to either of my Macs, the other Mac does not automatically import it, and instead, I need to manually import it each time.


How can I fix this so my Macs automatically import the photos? I have the appropriate settings enabled. Screen Shot 2013-06-28 at 10.44.57 AM.png


To clarify, the photos appear in the "Photo Stream" section correctly, they just do not import to my library automatically, and I need to manually import them.
