    thanks, so are these pictures now physically on the plus or am I viewing them over the network?

    After you turn on iPL, you should see a selection to optimize or have full res on the device. If you optimize, you’ll just have low res photos on your phone and it’ll download the full res as you view them. For newer photos you take I believe you’ll have the full res ones unless you start running out of storage.
