How to move old Photos from iPhone to iPad using Photo stream?
Last Updated :
There are lots of ways you can transfer your old iPhone photos to your iPad. One such method is via the Photo Stream App. Photo Stream is a feature available to iCloud users: It automatically syncs images you take across all your devices. But, in order to transfer old iPhone photos to your iPad, follow the process given below:
Enable photo sharing on both the iPhone and iPad. In order to share photos using Photo Stream, you'll need to enable photo sharing on both the iPhone and the iPad. - Open the Settings app on your iPhone. - Tap the "iCloud" option. - Select "Photos". - Toggle "iCloud Photo Sharing" ON. - Repeat the same process on your iPad.
Open the Photos app on your iPhone. You can use Photo Stream to share specific pictures with your iPad. This is especially useful if you have more than one existing picture that you want to transfer to your iPad.
Tap the "Shared" tab at the bottom of the screen. If this opens the Activity window, tap "< Sharing" to return to the main Sharing screen.
Tap "+" to create a new Photo Stream. You will be prompted to create a name for the album. Hit "Next" when you're finished.
Enter the people you want to share with. If you are only sharing the photos with yourself, leave the fields empty and tap "Create".
Tap the new Photo Stream to open it. Your newly-created photo stream will appear in the list, but it won't have anything in it yet. Tap it to start adding pictures.
Tap the "+" button to select a picture to add. You can select multiple pictures at once by tapping each one to add a checkmark to it. Once you are satisfied with your selection, tap Done.
Enter a description (optional). You'll be prompted to enter a description for the shared photos after selecting them. You can leave this blank and tap "Post" if you don't need a description.
Access the photos from your iPad. Once you've posted the pictures, they'll be uploaded to iCloud (as long as your iPhone is connected to a wireless network). You'll be able to access them from the iPad in just a few moments. - Open the Photos app on your iPad. - Tap the "Shared" tab at the bottom of the screen. If you don't see the Shared tab, you didn't enable iCloud Photo Sharing in your iPad's Settings menu. - Tap the Photo Stream that you just created. It may take a moment for all of the pictures in the Photo Stream to download.
Save the photo to your iPad. Pictures shared through your Photo Stream will not actually be stored on the iPad, and will disappear if they are deleted on the iPhone. If you want to keep a photo from the Photo Stream on your iPad, you'll need to save it to your iPad's storage. - Open the photo from the Photo Stream that you want to save. - Tap the "Share" button. This looks like a box with an arrow coming out of the top. - Select "Save Image" or "Save to Camera Roll".

PicBackMan does exactly what it's supposed to. It's quick and efficient. It runs unobtrusively in the background and has done an excellent job of uploading more than 300GB of photos to 2 different services. After having lost a lot of personal memories to a hard drive crash, it's nice to know that my photos are safe in 2 different places.

LOVE this program! Works better than ANY other program out there that I have found to upload thousands of pictures WITH SUB-FOLDERS to SmugMug!
Thank you so much for what you do! :) #happycustomer
I pointed PicBackMan at a directory structure, and next time I looked - all the photos had uploaded! Pretty cool. I use SmugMug and while I really like it, the process of creating directories in is pretty laborious when you need to make 80+ at a time. This was a breeze. Thank you!
PicBackMan was really easy to setup and has been running for 3 days now backing up all my locally saved photos to Flickr. My photos are really valuable to me so it's great to be able to have them easily backed up to a secure location.
It's AWESOME!! I have tens of thousands of pictures...and they are now successfully uploaded to SmugMug, where they are safely backed up, and I can edit and organize them. If you are hesitating about using PicBackMan, hesitate no longer...try it...and you'll be glad you did!!
I started with the basic plan, went to premium and now on their platinum plan and it's more than worth the price for me. PicBackMan has saved me many tedious hours of effort moving many files between my various cloud and photo site services and my local computers.
I am very satisfied and surprised at the same time with Pic BackMan. The service is very good and useful. I used it to transfer my photos from Dropbox to my Flickr accound. I highly recomment it.
PicBackMan was an answer to many a prayer. How can I get this MASSIVE collection of photos onto a service that cripples uploading? PicBackMan. I uploaded approximately 85,000 photos in less than a month. It would have taken me close to a year to get all of those photos where they needed to go. Nothing short of brilliant.
I have thousands of family photos and it's always been such a pain to upload them to various cloud services for offline storage. Well not anymore! PicBackMan makes backing everything up a complete breeze. I don't know how I ever lived without it!
I was poking around the Internet looking for an easy tool to help me consolidate 15 years of my pictures from Google Photos and Flickr etc - this tool was very easy to use and was painless to setup.
