    Did search the forum but could not find a related query.

    Can you delete from iCloud ? I took a photo with my iPad 2 and it was uploaded to photo stream (iCloud). I would like to delete it . I have deleted it from the iPad but it is still on photo stream

    No.

    You can reset photo stream which deletes all pics, but you cannot delete individual pics.

    Log in at www.icloud.com. It's under one of the options - sorry I forget which one...

    Thanks .. Success :)

    after you reset from icould.com (access from pc /mac) you need to switch off the photo stream from settings - iCloud.

    Press delete photos when asked ... Turn on the photo stream setting and photos are gone from iCloud

    have just downloaded a song onto my iMac and watched it appear on my iPad. This is surely magic and witchcraft!! I have just been trolling around the forum and also Apple Forum, and I seems to me that many people just don’t understand iCloud, including me!!
    Photostream, backup to iCloud, streaming music, saving and editing documents are it seems really confusing folks!
    Is their any where we can go for iCloud tutorials etc??

    Can't Clear Photo Stream

    :( When using icloud.com to clear the photo stream, I continually get the error message as shown. It seems to indicate that Apple's servers are having issues, but for me this has been going on since iOS 5 was released. Since this is the only way I know of clearing out the stream, can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong?

    I've got three photos in my photo stream and I want to remove them. I log on to www.icloud.com and go to the reset option. When I click on it, I get a popup stating: "All Photo Stream photos will be immediately removed from iCloud". .. I'm presented with a 'RESET' button and a CANCEL button... Great... So I choose the 'Reset' button and the popup goes away. But nothing ever gets removed from the Photostream on my iPad. I've gone through this process a dozen times and nothing ever changes.

    Some aspects of iCloud do work for me.. I can change information in 'Contacts' and the changes appear on my iPad right away, but the photo thing does nothing.

    Sigh.. I wish they'd get this iCloud running right.

    Doesn't work for me. From my desktop I reset my iCloud to erase my photo stream. I turned off my iCloud photo stream from my iPad 2 and also turned it off under e-mail…. Still can't get rid of all the photos iCloud uploaded from my desktop. So I deleted my iCloud account from my iPad. Still
    can't delete the photos iCloud uploaded onto my iPad.

    Anyone actually know how to delete the photos iCloud uploaded onto my iPad 2?

    From what I'm reading, it's an all or nothing deal, when you want to delete from the photo stream on the iCloud itself.
