Since upgrading to iOS 7, the photos I take on my iPhone no longer show up on my computer (iCloud account).  Photos I take on my iPhone do show up on my iPad.  The problem is only on my computer.  It worked perfectly when I was using iOS 6.  Please help!



iPhone 5, Windows 7

    Settings > iCloud Photo Stream - On.

    does this involve iPhoto for the Mac in any way?

    Do you have a Mac? If so  disable Photo Stream in the System/iCloud preference pane



    and in iPhoto's Photo Share preference pane.




    Reboot and reenable both respectively. That should jump start Photo Stream.


    If you don't have a Mac you need to pose your questions in the iCloud on my PC  community.

    Thanks, all, for attempting to help me.  I have a PC, not a Mac.  I will post my question on the iCloud on my PC community.  This problem is making me absolutely crazy.


    Thanks, again.

    possibly this article or the trouble shooting links will help

    Thanks, again, for attempting to help.  Unfortunately, I already did everything that was in that link.  I hope someone is able to solve this.  Thanks, again, for trying!

    I had the same problem, but I was looking in the wrong direction. I found my photo's in a folder My Pictures. Hope this helps for you

    I had the same problem and searched the forum and no steps helped but peiced together some advice and here is what worked for me:


    1) unplug my phone from computer

    2) quit iTunes and iPhoto

    3) pluged it back in and iTunes automatically launched saying a passcode is required to communicate with the phone (I didn't turn that on so I had to create one on my phone). Error that is was unable to communciate to my phone.

    4) I set up a passcode on my phone.

    5) A window popped up on my phone asking if I trusted this computer. Allow.

    6) iPhoto automatically launched and my photos were there!


    * For some reason, step 3 & 5 kept repeating and I couldn't get rid of these pop-up windows but I didn't care, I was able to download my photos from iPhoto.

    Can someone explain this one to me?  I opened iPhoto on my Mac today and noticed that tens or hundreds of my photos in my Photostream (on my phone and ipad) were not in the "[Month] 2014 Photo Stream" events in iPhoto.  For example, in "Mar 2014 Photo Stream" event there was one photo in iPhoto but there were at least 8 on my ipad during that month.  I followed the above advice: I turned OFF Photo Stream in iCloud and iPhoto.  I was just about to restart my computer when I noticed that all of those missing photos from photostream now WERE in iPhoto.  So to sum up: with Photostream turned ON, my photos don't sync.  With Photostream turned OFF, they do?  Any ideas?
