    and how much space does iTunes say is taken up by your photos...

    me: 218 pics, 2.2GB

    Seems to take up a lot of memory, how do you manage your photos?

    I like the 'Places' feature so I wish I could keep all the pics I take in the camera roll but seems like space is becoming an issue on my 32GB iPhone...

    Zero in camera roll.

    Every night (or every few days) I will sync all of my photos that I have taken during that period to my iPhoto, and I have created a Smart Folder to only add photos that have a 5 star rating. So instead of having duplicate from the same event/place, or a bunch of photos that are Ok but I don't need keep them on my phone, I now have a folder with only my favorite photos that I like to show off to family/friends.

    I also have a Smart Folder for my videos.

    i sync almost my entire iphoto library, or about 20 gb of photos. it only takes about 6 gb on my iphone though, because i do not sync full quality photos. itunes resizes them on the iphone (and only on iphone).

    it also helps that my professional photos (~100gb) are in aperture, not iphoto.

    I try to keep it clean and import all the photos to my Mac every 3 or 4 days.

    So my roll is pretty small most of the time.

    What I sync back to the phone changes a lot since I use Smart Albums in iPhoto to decide what to put on the phone. It keeps the last few weeks and then anything older is removed unless it has 4 or 5 stars.

    At the moment I have 5,285 photos on my phone which are taking up 4.6 GB. It changes a bit but that's pretty average.

    (I think I have about 80-100 GB of photos within iPhoto itself.)

    Zero. It annoys me when iPhoto launches when I plug in my iPhone to my Mac so I keep the camera roll empty. Oh, and when I tell iPhoto to import and delete, it doesn't delete the photos from the iPhone...so then I'm annoyed X 2 :(

    I have over 700 on the phone presently and have probably downloaded at least 700 others to my Mac.
    One thing that surprises me so far with my iPhone 4 is that I haven't taken many videos. I expect that to change in the coming months as ski season arrives here because I try to take videos of every trip I take.

    I should seriously consider adding another HD now. :p
