So... I have an iMac and an iPhone. My girl friend is all about windows but owns an iPad. I just bought her the windows surface to trade her for her iPad to make both of our lives more compatible (digitally speaking). Here's where it gets weird. I am trying to figure out how to get all pictures from it. Including camera roll and photo stream but she is "sure" the "only" way to get them will delete them all? Anyways. Question 1: If photos are viewable from the iPad via photostream on the iPhone, what happens to the photo stream when I factory reset the iPad? Question 2: On a windows 8 computer, what is the easiest way to get the photo stream onto the computer to be transferred into an external hard drive for storage and out of the clutches of apple?
