Question about Pictures
I'm new to iPhone and hope to have a new 4s in the coming weeks, I'm not able to preorder or purchase one this week but hopefully the following . I'm still debating which size iPhone to get and I have a question about iCloud and pictures. It says on the Apple site that
With Photo Stream, you can take a photo on one iOS device and it automatically appears on all your other devices, including your Mac or PC.
From what I believe I'm understanding is that all my photos will pretty much be available on my PC without having to actually plug my iPhone into the computer, and therefore I can transfer all of them onto my PC's harddrive, making it easier to manage the space I have available on my iPhone. Am I understanding that correctly?

So I understand that the last 1000 pictures will be stored in Photo stream and on iCloud and be directly accessible from my phone. What would I need to do if I wanted ALL my pics accessible from my phone? Can I make use of my storage allowance and upload all pics to iCloud?

If you want to directly access "all" photos from your phone, you'll have to leave them on the device. Or find another method such as flickr or dropbox.

The one thing no one is saying about pictures and iCloud is what if you are on a website(Gamefaqs for example) and save a map picture to your phone. Will it be uploaded to the cloud for photostream or will it be a document upload?
Edit: Sorry I just saw on the page about backup of photos and videos in the camera roll

It doesn't even upload the full res picture to photo stream. I don't want resized, lower res copies saved or synced to my computer. All the pics you view on photo stream are not the original resolution.
This is easy to tell. Email or save a pic from your photo stream and compare to the original picture.

These weren't exactly hi-res to begin with.
Just doesn't make it nearly as useful as it could be.

Found out how to set up icloud on PC, but doesn't look like the download page for windows setup is live yet.... for anyone else who is wondering, I think you will need to go to http://www.apple.com/icloud/setup to set this up on pc.
This is starting to look like it can take over some of the duties of dropbox for me. I often upload/import pics to my pc from my phone this way, icloud will be handling this with photostream now.
