Now this is a real bummer, guys over at MacRumours forum have been discussing this issue since June with the Developers’ Kit and still there are no work around to delete individual pics in your Photo Stream. The only reason to delete any photos, such as the ones that you should not have taken and afraid will start showing up on your iOS devices or even worse, pops up on your Apple TV in front of your dearly beloved is a freaking nightmare.
So….the best workaround so far is log into your iCloud account, click your name on the top right corner, click on the advanced option, and set reset Photo Stream. Next go to each iOS device, under settings, click on iCloud, turn off Photo Stream on ALL your iOS devices, turn them back on in a minute, and voila, back to square one.
Though this weeks, Apple should come up with a way to delete individual photo locally…….what are you guys at Apple are thinking?
