    I'm wanting to delete unwanted photos and contacts from my iCloud. How do I log into my iCloud to see what is all in it so I can delete what I don't want?

    Welcome to iMore! If you delete a photo from your device it will delete the corresponding photo from iCloud. Additionally you can visit www.icloud.com from a web browser and manage your photos.

    I just looked, and have a slew of screenshot images in my iCloud that I have deleted off my phone. Backups are done daily.

    Should they be deleted (is my iCloud account wonky)? I'm going to manually delete them now, but just wondering.

    Do you have Photo Stream turned on? I believe that removing photos from your camera roll will not remove them from your Photo Stream. This should help:

    Weird... it's not enabled but now those photos are gone from iCloud. Chrome may be glitching or the cache wasn't refreshed. /scratches head

    I think you willed it to update.
