Curious how many photos and albumns do you keep on your iphone ? I've been keeping all my photos from my Mac on my phone around 9k in different albumns I'm now thinking what's the point and just keep favorites. I figure in an keep all my photos on my Mac and ipad since they are normally home.how do you all manage your photos and albums?

I keep around 10 photos at most in Camera Roll, once it goes over that, I import them to DropBox and delete the originals.

No need to have photos taking up space, especially when most of them go untouched for weeks or months.

About 10-15. + Photostream.

I delete, or sort, process, and upload before too long.

290 currently. I import occasionally, I should look at photostream or better dropbox for syncing though...

From anywhere between a couple weeks to a few months' worth, depending on when I get my lazy butt around to launching Aperture and transferring everything off.

Memorable photos get synced back to the phone via iTunes photo syncing, but they take up less space this way since Aperture resizes them to iPhone size.

I have a 64GB iPhone so space is not a concern, and it backs up regularly to both iCloud and my computer.

Roughly 4,000. I keep all of my pictures of my daughter with me at all times. I need to start making more smart albums in iPhoto to break them up (1-3 months, 3-6, 9-12, etc.)

However many I take between new iPhones. Only at 229 right now. When I upgrade I set up as new and start a new roll. I import them to iPhone but still keep them on my phone not sure why

I keep my iPhoto library synced to my iPhone so I have a little over 3,000. It's starting to take a huge chunk of space though so I'm thinking I might only sync select albums. I don't really want to pony up for a larger capacity iPhone.

4,400 at the moment. On a 16GB phone.

I topped 5,000 last summer/fall, deleted about 1,500 (in addition to apps and music) in order to update to iOS 6, and here I am again...

1635 - every photo I have taken with a digital camera or phone and deemed worthy of keeping, except two albums taken with an ex girlfriend.

I keep my camera roll nice and empty and at some point soon intend to digitise every one of my negatives, bringing that number up significantly, probably to around 3k.

I have a 64gb iPhone though, so its little bother
