O.K. I am new to the mac world. I recently purchased a mew Mac with Lion, I got an i-phone 4s, and I set up an i-cloud account. What I would like to have happen, is when I take a photo with the i-phone, the image finds its way to the computer. That does not seem to be happening. However, when I take the CF card from my DSLR and move the images to a folder in i-photo, the images go to events, photo stream, and the folder I made for them. They also go to my phone. I would like for them to just go to the correct folder. At this rate, the phone and computer are going to fill up quick. Any help would be appreciated. PS: I am not the most computer literate person out there!

Sometimes Apple products can be so simple they become hard :) You can go to the iDevice's setup site here (http://www.apple.com/i​cloud/setup/ (external link)) and follow the instructions for your devices. Then, go to the iCloud setup (at the top of the site) and set it up on your Mac & PC's. As far as file management, there isn't much choice with iPhoto and if there are tricks I don't know them because I only use Aperture which gives you far more control.

I have my gear (iPhone 4s, iPad 2, iMac) set up to work the way you want yours to work (photos from iPhone go to iMac and iPad 2, but photos uploaded to iPhoto or Aperture are not automatically put into Photostream). You have to make a few settings changes.

On your iPhone, check the settings under iCloud and make sure Photostream is enabled and that the account is active with your Apple ID. This will push photos taken from the iPhone to your other devices including your iMac.

On your iMac, go into iPhoto and under the Preferences settings, ENABLE Photostream by checking the top box, but UNCHECK the two lower boxes relating to Automatic Import and Automatic Upload. Unchecking these boxes will prevent new photos you upload via your CF card from going into Photostream automatically, but checking the box to enable photostream will allow the iPhone photos to show on your iMac. If you want to add photos you've imported into your iMac to Photostream, simply highlight it and click the Photostream button on the top banner. That photo will then be pushed to your iPhone.

Hope that helps.

FYI, there is no dash (-) after the 'i'.

This is how I do this:

Setup a DropBox account (dropbox.com if you dont already have one).
Install the DropBox app on all your computers, tablets and phones.
Buy the .99 iOS app called QuickShot.
Tie your DropBox account to the QuickShot app
Pick the folder you want QuickShot to upload your images to.
Use Quickshot to take your pictures.

Now once you take your pictures on your iphone or ipad using the quickshot app itll automatically send the image to all computers, tablets, and phones that you have attached to you dropbox account.

Thank you tgara for the advice. That seems to be working. I still do not have a handle on i photo (not i-photo). I just need to play with it some more i guess. Thanks again.

There also isnt a space after the i. Im not sure where you bought all these things but, every Apple product comes with apple care, call them up and ask them, that is what they are there for.
