    How much memory do like 500 or so photos take up? What about 100?

    I'm not sure how iTunes converts the files, but I am pretty sure that photos with higher resolutions take up more space. Since I don't really have any photos, I don't have any numbers to share. But 500 photos should be less than 1GB for sure, probably even less than 500MB.

    iTunes scales the pictures down(it refers to it as "optimizing"). Kind of annoying as my pictures were all 6 megapixels and I couldn't zoom very far in on my iTouch before it got pixelated...

    500 x picture size = total size
    ex: 500 x 1 mb each = 500 mb total size
