Q: "How do I copy certain photos from my iPhone's photostream to my PC? When I plug the iPhone into a windows PC, I can access the camera roll photos, but not the ones in the photostream. I want to get about 20 photos from the photostream to PC, is there a better way to do this?"

Photo Stream, a feature of iOS 7/iOS 8/iOS 9 that was designed to store your most recent 1000 photos or the last 30 days of images on iPhone/iPad/iPod touch. Because your computer have more storage than your iPhone, you can choose to and store those photostream photos locally in your PC or Mac.

For Mac users: In iPhoto or Aperture preferences, select Photos (or Photo Stream) > My Photo Stream > Automatic Import. All of your photo stream photos will import into your Events, Projects, Photos, Faces, and Places folders in iPhoto or Aperture.

For PC users: Download and install iCloud control panel software on your PC, turn on My Photo Stream, and all of your photos will import into C:\\Users\\Pictures\iCloud Photos\My Photo Stream
