iCloud Photo Streams in iOS 7 are a great way to share your photos with your friends. But it's also a great way to share photos across all your devices. Apple designed the Photo Stream as a service that works like social networking but for a limited number of people in your circle.

While Photo Streams are iCloud-based, the photos are stored on your iPhone too. That's for quick access. If you feel that there's a ton of photos in the Photo Streams, and you want to delete photos or entire albums, it's easy. It's almost the same as deleting photos from your camera roll.

There's a thing about deleting photo streams from your iPhone. When you created a photo stream and then delete it, you are effectively removing the whole album with it. If in case this is a part of ‘My Photo Stream', (which syncs photos to all your other devices that have the same iCloud ID), these photos/albums will be gone from all your other devices too.

Suppose someone shared a photo stream with you and you are deleting these photos/albums, then that won't affect the originals/source. It will only remove it from your device.
