    Default How To Get Two Photo Streams To One PC?

    My iPhone 4s is set to send the photo stream to my Windows 7 PC. I also want my wife's iPhone 4s pictures to photo stream to the same PC. We do not use different accounts on the PC- everything is in one account. We do not want to use the same iCloud account, as my phone is also used for work, and I need to keep everything else separate. Is there a way to accomplish this?

    Unless I'm mistaken, the same iCloud account must be configured on all devices in order for Photostream to sync between them. Since you want to keep things separate, you might want to open up a joint Dropbox or other cloud based storage account for photo sharing purposes.

    Thanks. Sounds like I can't do what I want to do. My goal is to have both phones automatically get their photos to my PC. It works great with one phone- I take a picture anywhere, and within seconds it is on my PC.

    If you both install the Dropbox app and use the same account, then Dropbox has an option to do photo imports to a Dropbox folder. Then you install Dropbox on your PC and those photos will automatically show up in your PCs Dropbox folder. You do have to remember to open the Dropbox app once in a while, but there is a setting to sync photos automatically when launching the app.

    Thanks! Sounds like that will work, though I'd rather have an Apple solution.
