Deleting photos from photostream was once not possible. Earlier there was no such method to delete photos from their Photo Stream, but it is now possible. You can delete any annoying photos from the photostream easily with the release of new iPhoto 9.2.2 on iOS 5.1.
It is a true fact that the release of iCloud and its Photo Stream was a revolutionary step in the field of photo sharing. This was really a great method developed by anyone in the world. The main benefit of this method was that anyone can upload their images easily directly from their device and share them with the world. However, there was a big problem with this method. Apple had not included the method to delete photos from the photostream. There was no such direct or indirect option to delete photos that you had uploaded to the photostream. The problem was really serious in some cases. If someone uploaded photos that are embarrassing, the person can never be deleted from the photo stream.
Now, there is a solution for this problem. You can delete any photo from the photostream that you want. You can delete using Cydia or using Mac. Before this method was developed, the only method to delete photos from the photostream was to delete the entire photostream that you have created. This was not a very convenient method. This problem is now solved. The release of Apple iOS 5.1 comes with hope of solving such problems. The latest version of iPhoto, 9.2.2 for Mac has also shown a good feature, particularly deleting photos from the photostream.
