Does iPhone automatically resize images to save space on the iPhone?

    It wouldn't make sense if photos were resized to 480 by 320, which would defeat the purpose of zoom, but it seems a little unnecessary to have photos on the iPhone at 5 MP (2592 x 1944). Cutting the resolution in half would decrease the file size for each photo into a quarter of the original, which I think would be ideal. Will the iPhone have an option to do this? Does iPhoto have an option to automatically do this?

    I would guess it would have the same options as an iPod. You can either store "preview" (resized) or full size copies of originals.
