With Photo Stream—a feature of iCloud—photos you take on iPod touch are automatically
uploaded to iCloud and pushed to all your other devices that have Photo Stream enabled. Photos
uploaded to iCloud from your other devices and computers are also pushed to your Photo Stream
album on iPod touch. See “iCloud” on page 16.
Turn on Photo Stream: Go to Settings > iCloud > Photo Stream.

New photos you’ve taken are uploaded to your Photo Stream when you leave the Camera app
and iPod touch is connected to the Internet via Wi-Fi. Any other photos added to your Camera
Roll—including photos downloaded from email and text messages, images saved from web
pages, and screenshots—are also uploaded to your Photo Stream and pushed to your other
devices. Photo Stream can share up to 1000 of your most recent photos across your iOS devices.
Your computers can keep all your Photo Stream photos permanently.
