    My screenshots are not appearing in my photostream, but any photos I take with the camera are. I can plug into my computer and import them that way, but it is not always convenient to have my USB cord with me and have the two in the same location.

    Is there any setting to fix this or has anyone else noticed it?

    BTW, this is an iPad 3, wifi only, and a PC running Windows 7.

    I have just tested mine (same set up as you - iPad 3 wifi and windows 7) and it put the screenshot into Photostream no problem.

    Hopefully someone will be able to help you solve it, sounds like something on your iPad is not doing what it should but I am a newbie iPad owner so can't help much except to rest mine.

    Well, it ended up putting two of the newest ones in the photostream. Maybe it took a few minutes for my settings to take place and so only put the screenshots that were taken after it updated in there... Guess it just didn't move anything that was already on the iPad. Looks like this is solved.

    You are correct. It will not move stuff already on the iPad. Photos Stream only adds stuff after you activate it; and as you take/add the photos to the Camera Roll.

    Don't tread Photo Stream as a backup. The files are only stored online (and on iOS devices) temporarily.
