    I'm still relatively new to Apple products.

    I have a 32 gig iPhone 5S and a lot of its storage is taken up with photos.

    About 3,500 of them.

    178 photos are in the camera roll. I culled them back from about 700. However, iTunes tells me that there are 3,347 photos taking up around 6.7 gigs worth of storage.

    When I browse the Photos app on the iPhone, I have 178 on the camera roll, 56 panoramas, 30 videos (which I thought that I deleted all of them), 4 slo mos, Last 12 mths, 1,744 from My Mac, Last Import 23 from my Mac.

    Now, aside from these photos taking up space a lot of them appear to be duplicated across the albums.

    How do I get rid of them all?????

    All I want to see are the 100 odd photos in the camera roll.

    I just turned off Photo Stream which had a lot but it made little difference to what I'm seeing.

    This is the one big thing that I miss from my Android phone - simple file management, no duplication, easy to get photos off the phone, and so on.

    Short of resetting my phone and starting again I'm at a loss as to how to cull and trim what's on the phone.

    Thanks in desperation.
