    I have more photos on my iPad than my iPhone. Anyone know of a quick way to sync both so they have the same photo stream ?

    Could you explain what you're trying to accomplish?

    Sounds like he did. I think he wants to get the additional photos that are stored in his iPad's photostream in to his iPhone's photostream.

    If you have email set up on both devices, put the additional photos on an email account. Then save to your phone. They should then be added to the photo stream. There may be a better way. But it should work.

    Yeah thanks folks. It was just when I take a picture with my iPhone it syncs with the photos on my iPad. Just looking for a quick way to get all photos on both. Will try the email method but I've got over 40 photos on my iPad that I would like on my iPhone. So if there is a faster way please let me know ... Cheers Andrew

    Europa's asleep right now. Maybe she'll know a more efficient way.

    I've used an app called MyPhoto. I can import many photos at one time my marking them. Then they can be sent to email the same way from the app, 20 photos per email.

    Unless your in a hurry, you might wait and see if Europa has a better way. Regardless, MyPhoto is a great app.

    With MyPhoto, you can share photos with other devices using the same wifi.

    The fastest way would be to take a screenshot of each of the pictures on the iPad. As long as the iPhone has Photo Stream on, the screenshots will now show up in there. Another option would be to use DropBox to transfer the pictures to the other device.

    I think Europa's idea of using screenshots really hits the mark. You screenshot the photo and it is automatically sent to Photo Stream. Very little work involved and no intermediary app needed.

    That has worked for me before. But a screenshot lowers the resolution and quality of a photo. I can't ever tell the difference though. But some are picky about that.

    That's why I listed DropBox as an alternative for photos that need to be full resolution. Email is tedious and DropBox works for all types of files, not just photos.

    You have a point there. The difference is almost negligible unless you zoom in quite a bit, but the difference is there.
