How To Delete Individual Photos From iCloud Photo Stream In iOS 5.1 Beta 2

iCloud is a feature in iOS which Apple is really proud of, as is evident from the recent iPhone and iPad ads. Despite being such a useful service, iCloud has its drawbacks as well. There have been many horror stories of people unintentionally sharing personal photos over the cloud, which were meant to be kept private for good. This is for the sole reason that once you have Photo Stream turned on, every photo you snap using your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch will be automatically shared across all the devices where your iCloud account is set up. If you fall victim to such a scenario, there is no way of deleting individual photos in Photo Stream, and you will have to remove the whole collection to get rid of one photo. However, with the latest version of iOS in its second beta testing phase, things are looking positive, as now individual photos can be deleted in iOS 5.1 beta 2. Having said that, this does not mean that there is some plain Delete button in clear view in the Photo Stream, you still need to know exactly what you are doing in order to get rid of photos.

Instagram is a great service, but there still doesn't exist a way for you to access the hordes of images on Instagram unless you have an iPhone, and this holds true whether you use Windows or Mac.

Image Map For Windows Phone 7: Rename Photos, View & Edit EXIF Data

One thing I have always found annoying about Windows Phone 7 is that once you have taken a photo with the camera, or even imported/ downloaded it to the phone, there is no way to rename the image. So if the photo was named “asadsdsf” when you downloaded it, that’s how it'll stay, when you, say, share it via email or upload it to Facebook. The platform's Mango update should have rectified said issue but sadly, it did no such thing. However, the problem has finally been resolved, but not via an official update. Image Map is a free app that allows you to rename any image stored on your device, view photos on a map according to the location where they were snapped, and edit their EXIF data. Read More
